Festival of Lights event details, new Pokemon debut in Pokemon GO

With just a few weeks away from one of the most anticipated event in Pokemon GO, we now have the full information of what Niantic has in store for us.

Starting November 7, 2023, and ending November 12, 2023, Trainers will have the chance to get many encounters with a new Pokemon called Tadbulb, as well as its evolution, Bellibolt. To evolve Tadbulb into Bellibolt, you would need 50 Tadbulb Candy.

There will be event-exclusive Timed Research with a focus on exploring and catching Pokemon. As a reward, Trainers will get an event-exclusive shirt, as well as encounters with event-themed Pokemon.

As wild encounters, these are the Pokemon that will be featured:

  • Pikachu
  • Vulpix
  • Ponyta
  • Magnemite
  • Voltorb
  • Chinchou
  • Mareep
  • Slugma
  • Electrike
  • Litwick
  • Morelull
  • Tadbulb

The Pokemon that will be hatching from 7kg Eggs during the event are:

  • Elekid
  • Magby
  • Dedenne
  • Morelull (with an increased chance of it being Shiny Morelull if hatched from an Egg)

The Pokemon that will be attracted more to Incense are:

  • Alolan Geodude
  • Hisuian Voltorb
  • Slugma
  • Volbeat
  • Illumise
  • Blitzle
  • Litwick
  • Litleo
  • Dedenne
  • Morelull
  • Tadbuld

As Field Research task encounters, these are the Pokemon that Trainers will be rewarded with during the Festival of Lights event:

  • Darumaka
  • Morelull
  • Tadbulb

The bonuses that will be active during the whole Festival of Lights event are:

  • 2x Stardust for hatching Pokemon
  • 2x Candy for hatching Pokemon
  • Incense (minus Daily Adventure Incense) will last twice as long

During the event, Trainers can enter Litwick and Tadbulb in Showcases. Plus, there will be an exclusive Collection Challenge for Trainers that are located in India that will grant Stardust, XP, and a bonus of earning twice the Candy for catching Pokemon during the Festival of Lights event.

Last but not least, there will be something mysterious things happening on November 11, which happens to be Raid Day. What might that be?
