So mark your calendar and get ready to join in on the fun, Trainer!

Lucky Pokémon Are Ready for a New Adventure!

Lucky Pokemon

It seems that Professor Willow has made an important new discovery about Pokémon! According to his research, there is a chance that Pokémon, when traded, can become Lucky Pokémon. It seems that Lucky Pokémon require less Stardust to power up, which means they can reach a higher CP much faster than other Pokémon. Plus, a Lucky Pokémon can be detected by the Pokédex, so you can keep track of them! To learn more, check out our blog.


New August Research Tasks Feature the Electric-type Legendary Pokémon Raikou!

Are you ready for an action-packed August of Field Research tasks featuring a Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region? This month, a brand-new set of Field Research tasks will include ones themed on Electric-type Pokémon and Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region. And if you collect enough stamps to earn a Research Breakthrough, you’ll have an opportunity to catch the Electric-type Legendary Pokémon Raikou. So get ready for some electrifying tasks next month—and get out and GO!


Trainer, did you know? The roars of this Pokémon send shock waves shuddering through the air and shake the ground as if lightning bolts had come crashing down.

The Legendary Pokémon Registeel Blasts into Pressure-Packed Raid Battles!

Pokémon’s legendary year brings more excitement with another Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region—Registeel, which makes its debut in Raid Battles on July 19! Registeel, the Iron Pokémon, has emerged and will take over Raid Battles from the Ice-type Legendary Pokémon Regice until August 16. Like Regice, this Steel-type Legendary Pokémon has an ironclad defense, but it’s weak to Fire-, Fighting-, and Ground-type attacks! Don’t miss your chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it travels away! Stay safe, and happy exploring!

Get an Eevee That Knows Last Resort on August Community Day!

Trainers, get ready for a unique back-to-back Community Day in August, featuring the Normal-type Pokémon Eevee! Because Eevee can evolve into many different Pokémon, this extended Community Day adventure will give you the opportunity to explore the wonders of Evolution. On both Saturday, August 11, and Sunday, August 12, the Evolution Pokémon will appear in the wild more frequently for three hours each day, and all Eevee caught during those three-hour windows will know the Normal-type attack Last Resort. Put those TMs away, Trainers! This special attack will only be available for Eevee that are caught or hatched during the Community Day event. Plus, you’ll earn 3× Stardust when catching all Pokémon, and Lure Modules will remain active for three hours during the event each day. A special Community Day box will also be available in the in-game shop throughout the entire weekend. Visit PokemonGoLive.com/events to find out when Community Day starts in your region!
