Pokémon GO Incense Day event makes a comeback after two years, Carvanha reappearance on the horizon

Trainers, Incense Days in Pokémon GO are always something to look forward to, aren’t they? For those who might be new to the game or need a quick refresher, Incense Days are special events where using incense is your golden ticket to attract a host of featured Pokémon.

The spotlight is always on one Pokémon, which appears more frequently throughout the event. But that’s not all, other themed Pokémon also pop up but during specific timeframes. So, it’s the perfect event to bolster your Pokédex without breaking a sweat.

So, where have we journeyed thus far in the world of Incense Days? Let’s rewind:

  • Sentret had its moment on April 19, 2020.
  • Carvanha took center stage on May 17, 2020.
  • Mareep lit up our screens on January 24, 2021.
  • Beldum battled its way into our hearts on March 14, 2021.
  • Swinub chilled with us on December 5, 2021.

Ah, memories. But what’s next on the Incense Day agenda?

Dataminers have been working their magic, and they’ve unearthed some text that indicates Niantic and Pokémon GO are up to something: another Incense Day event is brewing. But hold your Ponytas, because here’s where it gets interesting. The mined text mentions Carvanha, a Pokémon that already had its time in the limelight.

So, what’s the deal? Two theories are currently making rounds:

  • Making Up for past mistakes: Reports from Australia and New Zealand suggest that the shiny version of Carvanha was MIA during the first event. Could Niantic be planning a do-over?
  • Placeholders can be deceptive: Carvanha’s name could merely be a placeholder, and the featured Pokémon could still be a wild card.

Rumors are flying, and word on the PokéStreet is that if it turns out to be Carvanha again, you’ll want to clear your schedule for October 21, 2023. Just keep in mind that nothing is set in stone yet, so keep those incense sticks and Poké Balls ready for the official word.

The miners also reported the activation of Hindi language support. It’s clear that Pokémon GO is expanding its international community. This also sheds light on the purpose behind that enigmatic tweet from the Pokémon GO India Twitter account.

So there you have it, Trainers, keep your eyes peeled and your incense at the ready.
