Things have been hotter than ever with the implementation of research missions. Players have been working hard to unlock Mew, the mystical first Pokemon.
To celebrate the final Gen 1 Pokemon’s availability, Niantic is launching a limited time event. This event is all about the Kanto region, and the pokemon therein. From last Tuesday until April 17, players will be able to find more Gen 1 pokemon throughout the world.
Additionally, tare Gen 1 pokemon, such as Aerodactyl and Snorlax, will more commonly occur in Raid Battles across the world.
To further promote the classics, Kanto pokemon will also reward the player with double candy when caught. This means not only are there more to catch, but its twice as easy to evolve them, as well.
As you encounter and catch more Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region, all actions will be rewarded with double Candy. So, not only will you be able to catch Pokémon you might not frequently see, but you may also get the chance to register their evolved forms in your Pokédex as well.
You have four more days to participate in the event comes to an end. Otherwise its back to normal rates. Perhaps I will finally find that sandshrew I’ve been striving for.
