Trainers, are you ready to dive into another thrilling adventure in Pokémon GO? Niantic has dropped some major news, and this time, it’s all about the Noxious Swamp event. It’s not just about catching Shiny Skrelp or battling in Raids and Shadow Raids. Nope, we’re talking about something that adds an extra layer of excitement – the Team Go Rocket Hot Air Balloons.
The Noxious Swamp event isn’t just another event on the Pokémon GO calendar; it’s a treasure trove of activities! From catching the Shiny Skrelp, battling different Pokémon in Raids, to free-to-play Timed Research with an encounter with Jangmo-o – this event is packed with surprises. But one bonus that caught our eye is the increased frequency of Team Go Rocket balloons. So, let’s dive into the details.
During the Noxious Swamp event, you’ve got the chance to encounter a total of four Team Go Rocket Hot Air Balloons in Pokémon GO every single day. Exciting, right?
Here’s how it works:
- First hot air balloon: Appears between 12 am and 5:59 am
- Second hot air balloon: Arrives between 6 am and 11:59 am
- Third hot air balloon: Shows up between 12 pm and 5:59 pm
- Fourth hot air balloon: Makes its appearance between 6 pm and 11:59 pm
Got that? Good, because here’s where it gets intense. You’ve only got 20 minutes to defeat the Team Go Rocket member in the Rocket Balloon. Miss the window, and – yep, you guessed it – Team Rocket’s blasting off again!
Every so often, an in-game event can affect the frequency of Team Go Rocket Balloons’ appearances. During the Noxious Swamp event, we’re looking at a spawn rate as frequent as one Balloon every 20 minutes. So, mark your calendars and stay alert; this is how often the Team Go Rocket Balloons will spawn during the event.
The Noxious Swamp event is set to take your Pokémon GO experience to the next level. With Team Go Rocket Hot Air Balloons adding a thrilling twist, this is one event you don’t want to miss out on.
