The Season is going out in style, and bidding farewell through an event is where Niantic excels.
Starting November 22, 2023, and ending November 27, 2023, Niantic will be hosting an event named Party Up! where Trainers will have the chance to play more with the newest feature in Pokemon GO, Party Play. Players can form a group of four Trainers all level 15 or above and feel the benefits of the Party Play feature.
Next up is for all of those who didn’t finish the Season-long Timed Investigation that had a Master Ball as a reward, so there will be a Special Research story named Special Research: Master Ball available for purchase.
Now, the fun stuff, event bonuses. The bonuses that will be active during the event are quite fun, and worth taking advantage of.
Party Up event bonuses
- Up to five Special Trades can be made a day
- Two additional Candy for trading Pokemon
- Trainers level 31 and up are guaranteed to receive Candy XL for trading Pokemon
- 2x XP for winning Raid Battles
Throughout the whole event, there will be a Special Timed Research with a focus on Party Play activities, and completing it will give you Charged TM, Lucky Egg, Premium Raid Pass, and encounters with Hisuian Growlithe and Wurmple wearing a party hat.
As wild encounters, the following Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild.

If you were wondering whether Niantic left out information related to PokeStop Showcases, fear not. The eligible Pokemon during the Party Up event will be Sprigatito, Fuecoco or Quaxly.
Last but least, if you purchase through the web store, you can double your bonus PokeCoins per purchase for every PokeCoin bundle $20 and up. There will also be a Seasonal Special Box available in the web store from November 20 to November 24 at a 50% discount, and Trainers will get 25 Incubators, 25 Super Incubators, and 10 Poffins.
