June will be full of surprises and exciting Pokemon encounters that we are sure you will love it.
Due to the unexpected problem that the game had with Team GO Rocket appearances, Shadow Zapdos’ fame was cut short. Back then, Niantic said that they will bring back the beast, and that is exactly what they will be doing. From Tuesday, June 1st until Thursday, June 17th, 2021, both starting/ending at 12:00 a.m. we will be able to defeat Giovanni to catch that Shadow Zapdos that we all love. When this ends, Giovanni will rotate his Pokemon and will have a new Shadow Pokemon lineup.
For this month, the breakthrough besides a Pokemon will also feature a free Remote Raid Pass and x2 the XP if you achieve a Research Breakthrough. The Pokemon that will be granted the title Research Breakthrough encounter will be Clamperl.
The Raid Bosses that will be appearing in Raids will be:
Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in five-start Raids starting from Tuesday, June 1st, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. until Thursday, June 17th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time. The next Raid Boss, apparently a Legendary Pokemon, will be part of Raids starting from Thursday, June 17th, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. to Wednesday, June 30th, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
The schedule for the Raid Hour event that is happening every Wednesday for one hour is the following:
Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021, will feature the Legendary titan named Regirock. The following Wednesday, its fellow Legendary Titan Registeel will be joining the Raid Hour event, as well as Regice, which will come on Wednesday, June 16th, 2021. The last two Wednesdays of the month are to be announced.
As for Mega-Pokemon, the first Pokemon that will appear as a Mega-Raid Boss will be Lopunny. The Rabbit Pokemon will appear in Raids on Tuesday, June 1st, and will leave on Tuesday, June 8th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time. The Mega-Pokemon that will have its debut is Mega Slowbro. This Pokemon will be featured as a Mega-Raid Boss starting Tuesday, June 8th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. and will leave on Thursday, June 17th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time. The next Mega-Raid Boss will be Mega Gyarados, from Thursday, June 17th, 2021, to Friday, July 2nd, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.
The Spotlight Hour event will be interesting, as Dwebble will join us as a Spotlight Hour Pokemon for the first Tuesday of the month and will bring us x2 the XP for catching Pokemon. Next, as a Spotlight Hour encounter, we will have Abra, and it will bring us x2 the Candy for catching Pokemon. On June 15th, we will have Slowpoke paired up with x2 the Candy for transferring Pokemon. Swinub is the next Pokemon that will be in the spotlight, and on that day we will have x2 the XP for evolving Pokemon. On the last Tuesday of the month, June 29th, Aipom will be closing the events accompanied by the bonus of x3 the Stardust for catching Pokemon.
It was previously announced, but the June Community Day event will feature Gible, and it will happen on Sunday, June 6th, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. and will end at 5:00 p.m.
Galarian Slowpoke, Galarian Slowbro, and Mega Slowbro will be making their debuts either through raids (Mega Slowbro) or through events. The event that will feature these Pokemon is called A Very Slow Discovery, and it will start on Tuesday, June 8th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. and will end on Sunday, June 13th, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time. The next event that will be hosted is called Solstice Event. During this event, the Trainers in the northern hemisphere will have a chance to have encounters with summer-themed Pokemon, while the southern hemisphere will feature winter-themed Pokemon. More details will come on June 16th, 2021.
There will also be an event at the end of June, which is yet to be announced. All we know is that we will be sinking our two front teeth.
