Previous Story: Trainers, the first-ever Friend Fest event in Pokemon Go begins on November 27, and for a limited time, until December 2, players around the globe will have a chance to catch family-themed Pokemon and earn new bonuses.
The Friend Fest event will begin on November 27 at 1 PM PST and will end on December 2 at 1 PM PST, featuring:
- Family-themed Pokemon and their evolutions in the wild and as Field research rewards
- 1/2 Stardust trade cost
- Two special trades per day – that’s total of 12 special trades until the event ends
- Attack boost when raiding with Friends
Now, the family-themed part is a little confusing, as they haven’t mentioned these Pokemon until now. We have few guesses about which Pokemon might be a family-themed, so let’s take a look below. They mentioned only Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂ and their evolutions in the official announcement and these are the only family-themed Pokemon officially confirmed so far.
Possible Family-Themed Pokemon
- Doduo > Dodrio
- Exeggcute > Exeggutor
- Klink > Klang > Klinklang
- Mime Jr.
The ‘Lonely’ Pokemon
- Plusle and Minun
- Alola Pokemon
- We might see more Ditto in the wild as it can turn into any Family-themed Pokemon, but this is just a speculation for now
- Latios and Latias
Please have in mind that the above Pokemon are not confirmed as family-themed Pokemon that will be spawning in the wild and in Raids during the Friend Fest event. The complete list will be posted when the event goes live.
