Pokemon Go Mega September Week Two: Mega Houndoom, Shiny Ledyba, and More
Trainers can unlock Mega Houndoom by participating in Pokemon battles.
To celebrate the launch of Mega Evolution in Pokemon Go, a Mega September event is coming to the game next month.
This Mega September event will be split into three different parts, or weeks. Week Two will run from September 11 at 8 a.m. until September 17 at 10 p.m. local time.
During Week Two, Caterpie, Weedle, Paras, Venonat, Scyther, Pinsir, Ledyba, Spinarak, Wurmple, Kricketot, and Burmy will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and there’s the chance players may encounter Shiny Ledyba.
In addition, during this event, players will be able to complete event-themed Field Research tasks in order to receive Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, and Beedrill.
Elsewhere, a series of Timed Research tasks will be available to complete during Week Two. According to a news post on the Pokemon Go website, these Timed Research tasks will be “raid and battled-focused.”
Team Go Rocket will also have different Shadow Pokemon on their teams during Week Two.
In addition to these features, Week Two of the Mega September event will also focus on Mega Beedrill specifically. According to the news post, during week two, “[w]hen you use Mega Beedrill in Gym battles, Team GO Rocket battles, and Trainer Battles (excluding GO Battle League battles) during the event period, it’ll receive a temporary CP boost!”
Finally, if players can complete 275 million battles during Week Two (Gym battles, Team Go Rocket battles, and Trainer battles combined -- excluding Go Battle League battles), Mega Houndoom will begin appearing in Mega Raids.
