Pokemon Go August 2020: Scraggy Research Breakthroughs, Pokemon Spotlight Hours
Here are some of the events we can look forward to in August 2020.
August is almost here, which means it’s time to bust out those calendars so you can mark down all of the fun events that will be held in Pokemon Go next month.
To start, from August 1 at 1 p.m. PT until September 1 at 1 p.m. PT, you’ll receive an encounter with Scraggy each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough in Pokemon Go. As a reminder, you’ll achieve a Research Breakthrough each time you complete at least one Field Research task on seven separate days (it doesn’t have to be seven days in a row).
Next, a new Pokemon Spotlight Hour event will take place every Tuesday in August from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time. Four of these events will happen in August. Here’s the breakdown:
- August 4 - Horsea will appear more frequently in the wild, and you’ll receive twice the normal amount of Pokemon Candy when catching Pokemon.
- August 11 - Sableye will be the featured Pokemon, and you’ll receive twice the normal amount of Pokemon Candy when you transfer Pokemon to the professor.
- August 18 - Venipede will be the star, and you’ll receive two times the normal amount of experience points when you evolve Pokemon.
- August 25 - Geodude will be the featured Pokemon, and you’ll receive two times the normal amount of Stardust when you capture Pokemon.
Keep in mind, there are also three major Ultra Unlock events to look forward to in August.
Dragon Week kicks off on July 31 at 1 p.m. PT, and runs until August 7 at 1 p.m. PT.
Then, Enigma Week will be held from August 7 at 1 p.m. PT until August 14 at 1 p.m. PT.
Finally, Unova Week will run from August 14 at 1 p.m. PT until August 21 at 1 p.m. PT.
