Stardust Blast is an excellent opportunity to amass obscene amounts of Stardust, as most Stardust yielding in-game actions are increased. From catching and raiding to hatching, almost anything you do in Pokemon GO will yield double Stardust. Our The Ultimate Stardust Guide: Farming, Trading, Second Charge Move, Powering Up guide is an excellent write up that covers everything you need to know about farming Stardust.

Below is a chart on the amount of dust catching Pokémon rewards you with (no 2x bonus).
