A Fighting-Type Free-for-All in Pokémon GO. Get a scrappy start to the month of May in the Pokémon GO Battle Showdown event.
For the first two weeks in May, be on the lookout for more Fighting-type Pokémon in Pokémon GO! Pugilistic Pokémon such as Mankey, Machop, Makuhita, and Meditite will appear in the wild more frequently, and watch out for cute and hard-to-find Tyrogue hatching from Eggs more often.
What would a Pokémon GO Battle Showdown event be without extra rewards for battling? You’ll get double the XP for taking on Gyms and raids. When you interact with a Gym, you’ll get double the XP toward earning a Badge as you usually earn. When you spin the Photo Disc in a Gym, you’ll receive more items than usual. Finally, when you’re successful in a raid, you’re guaranteed to receive a Rare Candy, and whether you win or lose, you’ll earn 3,000 Stardust—six times the usual amount!
The event runs from 1 p.m. (PDT) on May 1 until 1 p.m. (PDT) on May 14, 2018. Don’t miss out on a fortnight’s fun of Fighting-type Pokémon and fierce battles!
