Keep in mind that these Eggs will need only 1 KM to hatch, as Egg hatch distance has been reduced by half until the COVID-19 health situation improves. You will also receive double Candy for hatches.

There will be event-exclusive Field Research tasks that reward encounters with:

    • Alolan Exeggutor,
    • Azumarill,
    • and—if you’re extremely lucky—Audino!
