Niantic Announced Pokemon GO Bug Out Event

Following the series of successful Pokemon GO events, Niantic has announced a brand new Pokemon GO event called Pokemon GO Bug Out event.

Starting on April 2, 2019, all Pokemon GO players around the world will be able to frequently encounter bug-type Pokemon as the event will increase the spawn rate of all Bug-type Pokemon.

In addition to the spawn rate increase, the event also features an in-game bonus such as the double time-span of Incense and increase of spawn rate of Pokemon when Incense is active.

During the Pokemon GO Bug Out Event period, there will also be a limited-time Bug-type Pokemon field research. Obviously, this is the event that you need to participate if you’re planning to get the Bug Catcher medal in Pokemon GO.
