Fans of the Latios and Latias, a pair of legendary psychic dragon Pokemon introduced in Generation III, won’t want to miss the current Pokemon Go event. Electrify the Sky invites players to snag the Mega Evolution forms of both Pokemon with an opportunity to earn Mega Energy through May 8. Additional rewards are also up for grabs by finishing a simple in-game quest!
Players will need to complete the following to complete the Timed Research task during the event period:
- Catch 10 Pikachu: 50 Mega Latias Energy
- Catch 30 Flying-type Pokemon: 50 Mega Latios Energy
- Rewards: 3000 XP, and a Flying Pikachu encounter (can be shiny)
Everyone’s favorite electric mouse Pikachu will be floating around during the event, held up by colorful balloons. It won’t be too hard to find ten to catch!
The following Pokemon will also be spawning more during the event, and all have the chance to appear in their shiny form:
- Charizard (if you’re lucky)
- Mantine (if you’re lucky)
New event-themed stickers will also be available from the in-game shop. Those holding tickets for the Pokemon Air Adventures live event from May 7-8 will be able to get event-themed stickers simply by spinning PokeStops and opening gifts from friends.
The event will end on May 8, 2022 at 8 PM local time.
