During the event duration:
- Specially themed Field Research tasks will be available for a limited time during this event.
These Pokémon will be released in their shiny variant with the start of the event.
- Mime Jr.
5km Eggs in their Respective Regions
- Mime Jr.
Respective regions means they are only available from Eggs picked up in these Pokémon’s region. eg. Tauros in America.
Note: The task, Trade Pokémon caught 10,000 km apart, will reward an encounter with the Regional Pokémon NOT currently in your region. Trainers in the Americas and Africa will encounter Zangoose and trainers in Europe, Asia, and Australia will encounter Seviper.
