Niantic is continuing to announce new content and events for Pokémon GO. Read on below to learn more:

Solgaleo and Lunala Debut during Pokémon GO’s Astral Eclipse Event

Enjoy the stellar power of Alola’s Legendary Pokémon, celestial-themed wild encounters, and avatar items that are out of this world.

Pokémon GO’s Astral Eclipse event will grace the nebula skies (and the earth below) until November 28, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time. Starting with this event, Trainers will be able to evolve Cosmoem for the first time in Pokémon GO! The next step of the Season-long Special Research, A Cosmic Companion, will also be unlocked, so prepare for your next adventure alongside Cosmog. Trainers can use 100 Cosmog Candy during the day to evolve Cosmoem into the Sunne Pokémon, Solgaleo, or they can use 100 Cosmog Candy at night to evolve Cosmoem into the Moone Pokémon, Lunala.

Solgaleo and Lunala represent the sun and moon, so Pokémon with ties to celestial bodies and the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games will appear more often. Alolan Rattata, Alolan Sandshrew, Clefairy, Alolan Vulpix, Staryu, Hoothoot, Sunkern, Lunatone, Solrock, Munna, Cottonee, Petilil, and Yungoos will appear more often in the wild. Complete Collection Challenges during the event to receive Stardust that you can use to power up your Pokémon!

Whether you choose to evolve Cosmoem into Solgaleo or Lunala, you’ll be able to accessorize with your new partner with brand-new avatar items. Fly as high as the moon with Lunala Wings and Lunala Pants, or shine bright like the sun with the Solgaleo Mask and Solgaleo Shoes. A pair of nifty Starry Sky Tights will also be available to bring some cosmic style to your next outfit.

With Solgaleo or Lunala by your side, you’ll be more than ready to take on the latest Ultra Beast threat in Pokémon GO. Ultra Beast Arrival: Global will take place on Sunday, November 27, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. Learn more about the event here.

For a full list of Pokémon that will be appearing in the wild, in raids, and as research rewards during the Astral Eclipse event, visit the official Niantic Pokémon GO blog.

Have a stellar time during the Astral Eclipse event, Trainers!

Roll Out the Welcome Mat for Ultra Beast Arrival: Global in Pokémon GO

Join friends around the world for ultra-fun and ultra-exciting raids featuring Ultra Beasts.

Since Nihilego’s first dramatic appearance at Pokémon GO Fest 2022, Ultra Beasts have been popping out of Ultra Wormholes and into Gyms with alarming alacrity. Now Trainers face a challenge of ultra-proportions—Ultra Beast Arrival: Global will take place on November 27, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. Wondering which Ultra Beasts you might face? That depends on where you battle. This is where you can find Ultra Beasts during the event.

In addition to the opportunity to battle powerful Ultra Beasts, Trainers can enjoy event bonuses throughout the day, including 1.25 times more XP for winning Raid Battles against Ultra Beasts, an increased chance of receiving Rare Candy XL from in-person Raid Battles, and up to five additional free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs during the event and up to two hours afterward for a daily total of seven.

After successfully defeating an Ultra Beast in a Raid Battle, the following Pokémon will begin to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes.

  • Machoke
  • Scyther*
  • Magmar*
  • Gulpin
  • Absol*
  • Minccino*
  • Frillish (female)
  • Dedenne

Refer a Friend

Playing Pokémon GO is more fun with friends, and you can earn rewards for helping your friends discover Pokémon GO. From November 21, 2022, to November 26, 2022, Trainers around the world can refer a friend and collectively earn rewards if they meet certain milestones. If a certain number of new Trainers are referred, all Trainers will receive a Lure Module. And if an even more ambitious goal is reached, all Trainers will be able to use Beast Balls when facing Ultra Beasts during Ultra Beast Arrival: Global.

We hope you have an ultra-fun day of Raid Battles, Trainers!
