What's New in Pokemon Go: Shiny Oddish, a Stardust Event, and More
You'll have the chance to participate in more Legendary Raid Hours this month.
From the appearance of new Shiny Pokemon to a chance to stock up on Stardust, here’s what’s going on in the world of Pokemon Go.
You’ll now have the chance to encounter Shiny Oddish as you play. Oddish evolves into Gloom, which can then be evolved into either Vileplume or Bellossom, so this is your chance to add Shiny versions of those Pokemon to your collection as well.
Stardust Blast Event
From October 3 at 1 p.m. PT to October 10 at 1 p.m. PT, you’ll receive twice the normal amount of Stardust when you capture Pokemon, hatch Pokemon from Eggs, and complete battles against members of Team Go Rocket. You’re also guaranteed to receive 2,000 Stardust from Raids during this event.
Legendary Raid Hours for October
From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time each Wednesday in October, more Tier-5 Raids will appear at Gyms near you. For the Legendary Raid Hours on October 9 and 16, these Raids will feature Giratina in its Altered Forme. The featured Pokemon for the Legendary Raid Hours on October 23 and 30 has/have yet to be announced.
