New Quests and Rewards

Previous Story 3/2/2019: Trainers, this is just in!

A new Equinox event is going live this month (March), and new Equinox 2019 event quests have been found in Pokemon Go’s GM file by the world famous Pokemon Go dataminer Chrales.

Here is the list of quests:

  • Catch {0} Bulbasaur or Chikorita
  • Catch {0} Grass-type Pokemon
  • Evolve {0} Grass-type Pokémon
  • Evolve {0} Grass-type Pokémon (maybe another number)

The event will most probably go live on March 20/21 as this is the date for Spring Equinox 2019. On March 20, the winter ends and the spring begins (Autumn Equinox in the Southern Equinox – summer and autumn). The start date of the event is yet to be confirmed.

For last, NOT CONFIRMED, NOT LEAKED and NOT TEASED, only rumors, is that Leafon and Glaceon might debut during the Equinox event 2019, as this is the time between cold/icy/blue season (Glaceon is Ice Type Pokemon) and spring/grass/blooming/leaves season (Leafon is a Grass Type Pokemon with leafy ears and tail).

With that being said, March will definitely be an awesome month for all Pokemon Go players and Pokemon fans! Good luck and catch ’em all!
