A new event has just started in Pokemon Go. The mobile game is hosting a Festival of Colors celebration until March 20 and features a new Alola Pokemon to catch as well as a new collection challenge to complete. Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
The Festival of Colors event starts at 10:00 a.m. local time on March 15 and short until 8 p.m. local time on March 20.
A new Pokemon Alola makes its debut in Pokemon Go during the Festival of Colors: Oricorio event. The colorful bird comes in four different varieties, each inspired by a different type of dance, but which one you encounter will depend on the region you are in. You can see where each shape will appear below:
- Oricorio pompom style – Americas
- Baile Style Oricorio – Europe, Middle East, Africa
- Pa’u Style Oricorio – Islands of Africa, Asia, the Pacific and the Caribbean
- Sensu Style Oricorio – Asia Pacific Region
In addition to Oricorio, the following Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild and in raids throughout the Festival of Colors events:
One Star Raids
Three Star Raids
- Alola Marowak
Five Star Raids
Along with the featured Pokemon, there will be a few bonuses in-game during the Festival of Colors event. All activated Lure Mods will last three hours instead of their usual duration, and there will be a new Collector’s Challenge that gives you a chance to catch Oricorio – among other rewards – when completed.
Additionally, players in India will have a few exclusive features. First, there will be a regional challenge to collectively catch 2 million Pokémon. If players can complete this goal, they will unlock a special bonus that will remain active for the rest of the event. There will also be an exclusive item bundle containing the following items:
- 1 lucky egg
- 1 lure module
- 1 rain lure module
- 1 mossy lure module
