Pokemon Go Mareep Incense Day: Everything You Need to Know
Mega Ampharos is also appearing in Raids!
Trainers, Mareep and its final evolution, Ampharos, are having their turn in the spotlight in Pokemon Go!
To start, Mega Ampharos began appearing in Mega Raids on January 19 at 10 a.m. local time.
Then, on January 24, a new Incense Day event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time, which features Mareep, as well as a variety of Electric- and Dragon-type Pokemon.
During Incense Day, different types of Pokemon will be attracted to Incense at different times during the day. Mareep will also be attracted to Incense throughout the entire event. Here’s the schedule:
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Electric-type Pokemon
- 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. - Dragon-type Pokemon and Pokemon that evolve into Dragon-type Pokemon
- 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. - Electric-type Pokemon
- 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. - Dragon-type Pokemon and Pokemon that evolve into Dragon-type Pokemon
During the “Electric” hours, you’ll be able to encounter pocket monsters like Pikachu, Magnemite, Voltorb, Chinchou, Plusle, and Minun. There will also be the chance to encounter Stunfisk.
During the “Dragon” periods, Incense will attract Pokemon like Horsea, Dratini, Trapinch, Vibrava, and Swablu. Bagon will also have the chance to appear during these periods.
If you evolve Flaaffy (the evolved form of Mareep) into Ampharos during this Incense Day event, Ampharos will learn the move Dragon Pulse. This move was previously a Community Day exclusive (Mareep Community Day took place in April 2018).
Finally, make sure to check the in-game store during this Incense Day event, since you’ll be able to claim a free box containing three Incense.
