As some legends arise from the power of friendship, there are others arise from fierce rivalries. The Season of Legends continues with Rivals Week, an event that celebrates rivalries between Pokémon.
News of Rivals Week
What matters most to a regular Pokémon GO trainer is seeing what awaits them at an event like this, even more so when the duration of this content is so short. We not only talk about the prizes and rewards it offers us, but we also refer to the opportunities that are presented to us to capture more creatures or consumable items for our Pokémon.
On the one hand, Skrelp and Clauncher will make their Pokémon GO debut, appearing in the wild, in raids, and encounters after you’ve completed field research tasks. For another, Landorus Totem Form will also debut in the game, but these only on five-star raids.
But to relax from so much capture, we have the challenge of the week of the rivals in the Global Challenge Arena, where by working with trainers from all over the world and winning raids they will be unlocked. 2 × Catch Stardust bonuses. Additionally, Pokémon known for their rivalries will appear more frequently, such as Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, Seviper and more.
These Pokémon will hatch from 5 km eggs throughout the event: Machop, Tyrogue, Elekid, Magby, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, and Seviper. The rivalries will also continue in the raids, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Zangoose, Seviper and more they will appear. Event-exclusive Field Research tasks will lead to encounters with rival Pokémon, such as Skrelp and Clauncher.
Niantic sources say the Team GO Rocket will take over Poké Stops more often, but that their balloons will also appear more than other times to get prizes like Team Rocket clothes.
How long is this Pokémon GO event?
Another important part of these Pokémon events is knowing how long the duration is. It is a very temporary and almost unique content, that if we do not act eagerly, we will be left without the excellent rewards and opportunities that this type of event gives us.
Now all that remains is to know when exactly will it start, but those are things that we also know thanks to the information you have given us Niantic. From next Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 10:00 a.m., until the Sunday 18 of the same week at 20:00, everything that we are going to tell you will be active in mobile game.
