Pokemon Go Friend Fest Event Guide, List of Family-themed Pokemon and Event Tasks and Rewards

Update: Trainers, the Friend Fest event has begun and players around the globe are reporting of seeing increased spawn rate of specific Friend-themed Pokemon and event-specific Field Research tasks and rewards.

Here is everything you should know:

Family-themed Pokemon

  • Nidoran Male
  • Nidoran Female
  • Combee
  • Exeggcute
  • Doduo
  • Magnemite
  • Diglett

Event Field Research tasks and rewards

  • Trade a Pokemon with a friend → Nidorina/Nidorino
  • Add 3 friends →  Nidoking/Nidoqueen
  • Win a Trainer Battle against another Trainer →  Dodrio/Dugtrio
  • Catch a Nidoran Male → Nidoran Female
  • Catch a Nidoran Female → Nidoran Male

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.
