Following the arrival of Team GO Rocket in the game, Niantic has announced a limited-time Team GO Rocket Event in Pokemon GO.
The new event happened because of Team GO Rocket‘s arrival in Pokemon GO that disrupted the natural habitat of Pokemon in the wild. As a result, the new event will increase the spawn rate of Pokemon like Ekans, Koffing, and more. Pokemon that are significant to Team GO Rocket will also be frequently spawning in Raid Battles during the event period.
Apart from the spawn rate increase, the event will also increase the egg hatching rate of Pokemon including Rattata, Ekans, Sandshrew, Zubat, Meowth, Machop, Magnemite, Grimer, Gastly, Drowzee, Cubone, Koffing, Murkrow, Sneasel, Houndour, and Poochyena.
In addition, Pokemon GO trainers will also have a chance to hatch, encounter, and catch shiny Ekans or Shiny Koffing. If you want to add your shiny collection, now is the time to prepare for the hunt.
Pokemon GO Team GO Rocket Event will begin on July 25th at 1:00 PM until August 1st 1:00 PM local time zone.
