Bug Out and Solstice Events return to Pokémon GO, bringing shiny Clefairy, shiny Dwebble, Solrock and Lunatone rotation, and Pinsir Raid Day this June. Get your Incense and Stardust farming gear ready!
Shiny Clefairy arrives and Lunatone and Solrock will be changing regions during the solstice-themed event
Solstice Event celebrates the summer solstice, which takes place on June 20. The days are getting longer in the northern hemisphere and the nights are doing the same in the southern hemisphere, and Pokémon GO is throwing in some new shiny Pokémon: shiny Clefairy!
Stardust lovers should be excited for this event in particular, as double Stardust will be rewarded for Pokémon catches.
Increased spawns of Pokémon associated with the sun and moon
Pokémon associated with the sun and moon—including Clefairy, Sunkern, and more—will be appearing more frequently in the wild, hatching from 5 km Eggs, appearing after completing event-exclusive Field Research tasks, and appearing in raids.
Shiny Clefairy in the wild
If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Clefairy! Previously, you could get a Shiny Clefairy only by hatching a Shiny Cleffa and evolving it, so this will be the first time you’ll have a chance to encounter Shiny Clefairy in the wild.
Lunatone and Solrock in raids, 5 km Eggs and in the wild
Throughout the event, Lunatone and Solrock will both be appearing in three-star raids and hatching from 5 km Eggs, regardless of your location.
Lunatone and Solrock will be appearing in the wild in different regions. See the schedule below for details on when Lunatone or Solrock will be appearing in the wild near you.
Here’s a handy table that illustrates the Lunatone and Solrock wild spawn schedule:
|Hemisphere and Date||June 19 – 20||June 21 – 22||June 23 – 24|
