Timed Research: GO For a Spin

Complete timed research for encounters with the Spot Pokémon, Spinda. Spinda is usually only available in the ‘Make 5 Great Curveball Throws in a row’ Pokéstops research, so this is a great chance to aim for those shinies.

New Costume Pokémon

Two brand new costume Pikachu will appear during the event, Pikachu wearing Brendan’s hat, or May’s bow. Brendan and May are the rivals in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.

Ruby VS Sapphire Challenge

As earth and sea clash, you’ll have to pick a side! All trainers will need to pick between a Ruby and Sapphire Badge, and the team you pick will shape your Pokémon encounters. Trainers who attend the Las Vegas in-person event will pick their badge in Vegas, and it will carry over into the global event.

Each hour you will be able to complete special field research tasks to help your team. Depending on which team completes more research, all trainers will see increased Primal Raids for either Primal Groudon (Ruby) or Primal Kyogre (Sapphire), plus an increased chance of encountering certain wild Pokémon.
