The event runs from January 24th, 2020 at 1:00 pm PST until February 3rd, 2020 at 1:00 PST
As a reminder, the event comes with the bonuses of rare candies in gifts from friends and the increased chance of becoming lucky friends and having trades be lucky as well.
- Latios and Latias are in raids just for the weekend. So get out and catch them while you can, both are potential shinies as well.
- Medicham is a pvp beast so if you are missing a good one for Great League, raids are a good way to get one.
- Venipede and Dwebble are very recent releases, so having them in raids will be a good opportunity to get one if you don’t have one yet and to farm candies.
