Pokemon Go 2020 Bug Out Event: Shiny Dwebble, Pinsir Raid Day, and More
Mark your calendars so you don't miss this fun event!
Update (06/26/2020): Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, announced that Pinsir Raid Day has been canceled.
Specifically, the Bug Out event will run from June 26 at 8 a.m. local time until July 1 at 10 p.m. local time. During this event, Bug-type Pokemon, such as Scyther, Venipede, and Dwebble, will appear more often in the wild and in Raids. You’ll also have the chance to hatch Bug-type Pokemon from any 5 km Eggs that you collect during this event. Plus, Shiny Dwebble will be released once this event begins!
When you use Incense during this event, certain Pokemon will be attracted to your location. Here’s the breakdown of which Pokemon you can attract during this event.
- From June 26 at 8 a.m. local time until June 27 at 11:59 p.m. local time, Nincada will be attracted to Incense.
- From June 28 at 12 a.m. local time until June 29 at 11:59 p.m. local time, Wurmple will be attracted to your in-game location when you use Incense.
- From June 30 at 12 a.m. local time until July 1 at 10 p.m local time, Scyther will be attracted to your location when you use Incense.
During this Bug Out event, you’ll earn two times the normal amount of experience points when capturing Pokemon. This bonus will count for every Pokemon that you capture, and not just Bug-type pocket monsters.
Finally, a special Pinsir Raid Day will be held during the Bug Out celebration. On June 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time, Pinsir will appear more frequently in Tier-3 Raids. During this time, you’ll be able to pick up a 1 PokeCoin bundle in the in-game shop containing three Remote Raid Passes, which allow you to participate in Raids without being near Gyms in the real world.
