Pokemon Go Mischief Unbound Event: Everything You Need to Know
Hoopa Unbound will be available soon!
The Season of Mischief is almost over in Pokemon Go, but there’s still one more in-game event to look forward to before it ends.
The Mischief Unbound event will take place in Pokemon Go from November 26 at 10 a.m. local time until November 29 at 8 p.m. local time.
During this event, players will earn two times the normal number of experience points when catching Pokemon, and they’ll also receive two times the normal number of Pokemon Candy when transferring Pokemon to Professor Willow.
In addition, four Raid Hour events will take place during this event. Each one will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, and they’ll feature different Legendary Pokemon. Here’s the calendar:
- November 26 - Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres
- November 27 - Heatran
- November 28 - Regirock, Regice, and Registeel
- November 29 - Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizon
Next, four extra Spotlight Hour events will take place during this event. While regular Spotlight Hour events take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, the Spotlight Hours during the Mischief Unbound event will take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. local time. Here are the Pokemon that will appear more frequently than normal in the wild during these events.
- November 26 - Rattata
- November 27 - Sableye
- November 28 - Pikachu
- November 29 - Beldum
All four of these Pokemon have the chance to be Shiny.
Finally, when the Mischief Unbound event begins, players who have completed the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research storyline will receive an additional set of Special Research tasks called “Mischief Unbound.”
If you haven’t completed the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research tasks, you’ll have until December 1 at 9:59 a.m. local time to complete them in order to receive the Mischief Unbound Special Research storyline for free.
If players don’t think they’ll be able to finish the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research storyline by 9:59 a.m. local time on December 1, they’ll have the option to purchase a ticket for the Mischief Unbound Special Research tasks for $4.99. This ticket will be available to purchase until December 1 at 9:59 a.m. local time.
Once players complete the second set of tasks in the Mischief Unbound Special Research storyline, they’ll unlock the ability to change Hoopa’s form. Players will be able to change Hoopa from Hoppa Confined to Hoopa Unbound using 50 Hoopa Candy and 10,000 Stardust. Players will be able to change Hoopa from Hoopa Unbound to Hoopa Confined using 10 Hoopa Candy and 2,000 Stardust.
In a news post on the Pokemon Go website, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, said, “You’ll be able to earn some of the resources needed to change Hoopa’s form by completing the Mischief Unbound Special Research story.”
Players will also be able to earn a free Hoopa T-Shirt avatar item by completing the Mischief Unbound Special Research tasks. This avatar item will be added to the in-game shop after the Mischief Unbound event ends. That way, if players who didn’t receive the Mischief Unbound Special Research tasks would like this avatar item, they’ll have the option to purchase it outright (they won’t be required to buy it).
