Evolving is part of everyone’s life. If you don’t evolve, it’s tough to adapt, therefore difficult to survive. Ok, that may be a bit deep, hahaha, but it’s time to celebrate how much we and our Pokémon have evolved this year with the first ever Evolution Event, followed by a Raid Day!
Starting Thursday, December 5, 2019, until Thursday, December 12, 2019, look forward to Evolution items from raids, longer-lasting Lure Modules, and increased encounters with Pokémon that evolve in special ways.
Check out the toggles below to find all the information you are looking for!
