You can evolve and grow with your Pokémon in all kinds of ways in Pokémon GO, and it’s time to celebrate that with a new event: Evolving Stars!

The star of the event is Cosmoem, the Protostar Pokémon, which will make its Pokémon GO debut! You can also look forward to Field Research focused on Evolution and a Collection Challenge that awards Evolution items. Read on for more details!




Features

The Season of Light story unfolds!

Continue to follow Cosmog’s story throughout the Season of Light!

A new part of the Season-long Special Research will unlock during the Evolving Stars event—complete it to take another step on your stellar adventure with Cosmog.

You can find the details on that Special Research on the Season of Light event page.


Cosmoem

Cosmoem will make its Pokémon GO debut.

Trainers will be able to evolve Cosmog into Cosmoem by using 25 Cosmog Candy. And don’t worry about evolving your only Cosmog—rumor has it that Trainers will have the opportunity to encounter additional Cosmog in the distant future.
