Pokemon Go Rivals' Week: Skrelp, Clauncher, Dragalge, and More
Get ready to collect some new Pokemon!
A new kind of limited-time event is coming soon to Pokemon Go, which will focus on Pokemon rivalries.
Rivals’ Week will run from April 13 at 10 a.m. local time until April 18 at 8 p.m. local time.
During this time, Pokemon that are known to have rivalries will appear more frequently than normal in the wild. This will include Pokemon like Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, and Seviper, among others.
In addition, during this Rivals’ Week event, players will be able to work together to complete the Rivals’ Week challenge in the Global Challenge arena. This challenge will ask players to win Raid Battles in order to unlock a “2x Catch Stardust” bonus for the entire community that will run for the duration of the Rivals’ Week event.
Skrelp and Clauncher will be added to Pokemon Go when this event begins. Both will have the chance to appear in the wild, and they’ll also be available to encounter in Raids and as Field Research rewards.
Skrelp is a Poison- and Water-type Pokemon from Generation VI of the Pokemon universe. It evolves into Dragalge.
Clauncher is a Water-type Pokemon from Gen VI. It evolves into Clawitzer.
Elsewhere, players will have the chance to hatch Machop, Tyrogue, Elekid, Magby, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, and Seviper from 5 km Eggs that are collected during this event.
Team Go Rocket will also take over PokeStops more frequently than normal during this event, and their balloons will appear more often than normal.
Finally, other “Rival”-themed Pokemon will be available to battle in Raids and encounter as Field Research rewards during this event. Specifically, Pokemon like Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Zangoose, and Seviper (among others) will appear in Raids. Therian Forme Landorus will also be available to encounter in Tier-5 Raids during this event.
