Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go are celebrating the release of The Crown Tundra with a special in-game event and starting on October 22, 2020, at 6 PM to October 23, 2020, at 6 PM PDT, players around the globe will get a chance to catch Galarian Ponyta, Galarian Farfetch’d, earn cool bonuses and much more.
The Galar event goes live on October 22, 2020, at 6 PM PDT and will end on October 23, 2020, at 6 PM PDT. The Galar event offers a lot of cool stuff, and trust me, you’re going to love it!
Here is everything you should know about the Galar event thanks to Pokemon Go:
Some Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region will be appearing in the wild!
Date + Time
- Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. to Friday, October 23, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. PDT (GMT -7)
- Galarian Farfetch’d, which first appeared in Pokémon GO during an event celebrating the release of The Isle of Armor (part one of the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass), will be appearing in the wild!
- You’ll also be able to evolve Galarian Farfetch’d into Sirfetch’d! To evolve Galarian Farfetch’d, you’ll have to make 10 Excellent Throws with it as your buddy. Note that the number of Excellent Throws you’ve made won’t reset when you change your Buddy Pokémon, so keep on trying!
- Galarian Ponyta will be appearing in Raid Battles! This Pokémon has a small horn that hides a healing power.
- You’ll also be able to evolve Galarian Ponyta into Galarian Rapidash.
Go and catch yourself these Galarian Pokémon while the event lasts! After the event ends, Galarian Ponyta and Galarian Farfetch’d will be hatching from 7 km Eggs, and you’ll still be able to evolve these Pokémon.
