As part of the celebration of being able to transfer Pokémon from Go to Home, Niantic have announced an event that will take place from Tuesday 17th November 8am Local time to Monday 23rd November 10pm Local time.

As part of the event, there will be a timed research that will reward a Pidgeot Mega Energy and Field Research tasks that will provide encounters for Slowpoke amongst other encounters.

The following Pokémon will appear in the wild during the event:

  • Alolan Sandshrew
  • Zubat

  • Magnemite
  • Ditto
  • Porygon
  • Hoothoot

The following Pokémon’s will be appearing in Raids:

The event will be the first time we will be encountering a shiny Slowpoke. And you will be able to encounter Slowpoke and Gible and other possible encounters via the Timed Research Task.


The event will also mark the return (temporarily) of Shiny Meltan, which can be obtained from the Mystery box. Details from Niantic are a bit vague on this, and it may be the case of needing to transfer a Pokémon to Home from Go in order to activate the box.
