Pokemon Go Charge Up Event: Tynamo, Mega Manectric, and Therian Forme Thundurus
This event is electric!
Trainers, a new kind of event is kicking off this month in Pokemon Go!
The Charge Up event will run from March 16 at 10 a.m. local time until March 22 at 8 p.m. local time.
During this event, Electric-type Pokemon like Alolan Geodude, Voltorb, Electrike, and Stunfisk (among others) will appear more frequently than normal in the wild. Plus, Tynamo will make its in-game debut during this event, and you may also encounter it in the wild.
Tynamo is an Electric-type Pokemon from the fifth generation of the Pokemon universe. It has two evolutions: Eelektrik and Eelektross.
Tynamo, Pichu, Elekid, Electrike, Shinx, Joltik, and Stunfisk will have the chance to hatch from 5 km Eggs that are collected during this event, and players will also be able to complete a series of Timed Research tasks that focus on Electric-type Pokemon.
Elsewhere, players will be able to take on a number of Electric-type Pokemon in Raids during this Charge Up event. Here’s the breakdown:
- Tier-1 Raids - Voltorb, Shinx, Blitzle, Klink, and Tynamo
- Tier-3 Raids - Alolan Raichu, Alolan Graveler, Magneton, and Ampharos
- Tier-5 Raids - Therian Forme Thundurus
- Mega Raids - Mega Manectric, Mega Houndoom, and Mega Abomasnow
This will be the first time Therian Forme Thundurus and Mega Manectric will be available to collect in Pokemon Go.
This event will also feature event-exclusive Field Research tasks that players can complete to earn rewards such as Poke Balls, Ampharos Mega Energy, Manectric Mega Energy, and encounters with Electric-type Pokemon, among others.
Finally, when players open Gifts during this event, there will be a greater chance for those gifts to contain Evolution items (that is, the items that are required to evolve certain Pokemon).
