Enjoy Even More Mega September Fun with Your Mega-Evolved Buddy Pokémon in Pokémon GO

9/24/2020 Update: Trainers, your strength and determination are truly unparalleled. We’re excited to announce that you’ve unlocked Houndoom’s Mega Evolution and Mega Houndoom raids! These will be available on Tuesday, September 29 at 1 p.m. PDT.

Mega Evolution made quite a splash when it debuted in the world of Pokémon GO at the end of August. Since then, Trainers have battled in Mega Raids, collected Mega Energy to Mega Evolve select Pokémon, and battled with their Mega-Evolved Pokémon. Next, from Tuesday, September 22, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Monday, September 28, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time, Trainers will be able to participate in the Mega Buddy Challenge!

For the duration of the Mega Buddy Challenge, Mega-Evolved Pokémon will stay in their Mega-Evolved form for three times longer, increasing from four hours to 12 hours. The duration of Poffins will also be extended, doubling from six hours to 12 hours. Be sure to give your buddy treats to have it appear on the map, where you’ll be able to compare it to large Pokémon that’ll be appearing more frequently in the wild during this event, including Doduo, Alolan Exeggutor, Pinsir, Lapras, Snorlax, Furret, Wobbuffet, Mantine, and Skarmory. You may even encounter a Shiny Doduo!

You’ll be able to complete event-exclusive Field Research tasks to receive Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, and Beedrill. The Mega Buddy Challenge will also feature Timed Research—complete this Timed Research to unlock more Timed Research during this year’s Halloween event, which will feature Mega Gengar for the first time in Pokémon GO!
