In addition to the bonuses that recently went live for all Pokémon GO players, the Legendary Pokémon Zapdos has become available in Raid Battles around the world during Zapdos Day. You may be able to encounter Shiny Zapdos for the first time. Zapdos is exclusively available in Raid Battles around the world for a three-hour period. During that time, all Zapdos caught will know the Fast Attack Thunder Shock. See below for event hours in your region:
- The Asia-Pacific region: 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST (GMT +9)
- Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. UTC (GMT +0)
- The Americas and Greenland: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)
When you spin a Photo Disc at a Gym, you’ll now receive a Raid Pass up to five times since the event kicked off in the Asia-Pacific region. For a limited time, you can earn double Candy for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs. You can also earn up to 5 free Raid Passes on July 21 during Zapdos Day.
