The Special Raid Weekend awaits you shortly in Pokémon Go: it will be activated tomorrow, Saturday. A date and time are already available: The start of the event is planned for June 12th at 10 a.m. You then have until June 13th at 8 p.m. to take part in the in-game event. Of course, there are also new rewards waiting for you. During the period mentioned, there are twice as many candies for catching Pokémon than usual.

In addition, trainers from level 40 are three times more likely to receive an XL candy when catching Pokémon. Also, keep an eye out for the raid battles in the wild, as they happen more often during the event. According to Niantic, this also applies to level 5 raids and mega raids. “Remember that Regirock, Regice and Registeel will appear in raid battles until Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 10 a.m. (local time),” writes Niantic in the latest blog entry.

By the way: The event “A very slow discovery” is also running in Pokémon Go until June 13th. Here monsters like Flegmon, Galar-Flegmon, Mega-Lahmus and Galar-Lahmus appear more frequently than usual. Galar-Flegmon appears for the first time in Pokémon Go. You can evolve it to Galar Lame by catching 30 Poison-Type Pokémon while it is your buddy Pokémon.
