A reputable source of leaks has shared an interesting bit of information today – a new Pokémon GO event is rumored to be planned for June. Although this source has leaked correctly in the past, be aware that this is a leak, not verified news, so take this with a grain of salt.

Allegedly, a fire and ice event is soon to be announced by Niantic’s official Pokémon GO social accounts. The whole leaked media statement is at the bottom of the article.

The event celebrates the beginning of summer in Northern and winter in Southern Hemisphere and should take place between June 13 1:00 P.M. PDT and June 20 1:00 P.M. PDT, 2017.

In addition to increased spawn rates of Ice and Fire Pokémon, Trainers should receive more XP for all throw bonuses and for hatching Eggs. A 50% Lucky Egg discount is also rumored.

According to the source of the leak, the following species should spawn more frequently:

The original leaked public statement:

Trainers,

With summer quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and winter approaching in the Southern Hemisphere, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming solstices than with a Fire-type and Ice-type Pokémon GO event.

From 1:00 P.M. PDT on June 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on June 20, 2017, Trainers around the world will discover more Charmander, Cyndaquil, Growlithe, Houndour, Ponyta, Swinub, Vulpix, and their Evolutions. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for Sneasel, Magmar, Cloyster, and other Fire types and Ice types!

It’s time to perfect your Poké Ball throws, Trainers! Throughout the event, you’ll receive huge XP bonuses for successfully catching Pokémon with Nice, Great, and Excellent Throws, as well as Curveballs and First Throws. Additionally, as you walk around your neighborhoods or discover new sights, you’ll earn even more XP for hatching Eggs. To help you take advantage of these awesome XP bonuses, Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop.

Get ready to explore the world around you—there are even more exciting updates coming your way soon!

    any rumor for fire and ice hats?

    • Nothing yet

        Really been the special eggs to give double stardust as well. Stardust is a very limiting factor in the game. As more people are moving toward cooperative play within the game. There only opportunity is gym battles. When the new gym strategy is set certain pokes are bound to get nerfed. Give players back control with Special eggs giving stardust when used..You still have to catch pokes…. but isn’t that why we are here. Worsel55 Trainer Lvl 40 3rd in our region. handicapped.Driven or short walks to all my pokes. Best where ever!

  • AzureHeight

    Inventory is still bloated with Lucky Eggs from last “discount”. Going to use this event to get rid of them, rather than buy them lol

    Interesting how they’re specifying 2x XP bonuses now rather than having it 2x across the board.

    • hkmaly

      Because evolutions might NOT be 2x XP this time.

  • Heydavid17

    YES! I’ve been swimming with Chikoritas & Totodiles, finally to gather some Cyndaquil candy

    • meh

      Right. I have an army of gators I need DRAGONS like now. And cyndaquils a rodent right so a fire RODENT too?

  • Chang Hsun-Cheng

    no Lapras? thank you

  • Nosekills

    This is in cooperation with Gearge RR Martin’s A song of ice and fire (aka Game of Thrones) and the twist is that on the last day of the event all the Pokemon in everyone’s pokedex will dragically die in a gory way.

    • Kyle Gribelli

      Swinub are not in eggs, so, cannot be hatched. Just a heads up!

      • Antonio Mercurio

        thx for the heads up!

  • Rylan Yee

    Q: Will Lapras, Arcanine, Ninetales, and Typhlosion spawn more frequently in the wild for this upcoming event.

  • Ignacio Castañeira

    This event is allegedly to celebrate the beginning of summer and winter in northern and southern hemispheres respectively, and that would be the reason to the increased fire and ice types.

    However, could it be divided between hemispheres? I.e. southern hemisphere, starting of winter, increased ice types (no fire types) and the opposite at the northern hemisphere?
