Pokémon GO Lunar New Year 2024 Drampa and Shiny Drampa debut, 1 Billion Nice Throws Global Challenge

Trainers, Niantic and Pokémon GO are celebrating the Lunar New Year 2024 with a special in-game event, a new Pokémon debut, event-exclusive bonuses, paid Timed Research and a Global Challenge.

The Lunar New Year 2024 event also called Dragons Unleashed is set to go live next month starting on February 5, 2024, until February 11, 2024. The Lunar New Year 2024 Dragons Unleashed brings a new Pokémon into the game, event-exclusive bonuses that can be quite helpful during the event period, event-themed Field Research tasks and encounters, paid Timed Research and Global Challenge.

Dragons Unleashed brings Drampa and Shiny Drampa into the game for the very first time. Drampa will be available to encounter in Three-star Raids, by completing the specific Field Research task and hopefully by completing the paid Timed Research.  Drampa is the highlight of this event, and we hope Drampa and Shiny Drampa will not be locked behind a paywall.
