Pokemon GO: Evolving Stars event
Let’s start with the basics, the Evolving Stars event continues the Season-long Research Story starting on October 5th, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, October 11th, 2022, 8:00 p.m. local time. A star of the event is coming to Trainers, and a literal start to be exact. So let’s discuss the Pokemon we’ll be encountering in Season of Light’s Evolving Stars, shall we?
Pokemon Debut Cosmog and Cosmoem and Field Research tasks
The star that we have been talking about is no other than, Cosmoem. The Psychic-type Pokemon makes its debut in the game during the Evolving Stars event. Its base form Cosmog may be evolved into Cosmoem using 25 Candies. Pretty sure you would want to evolve Cosmog to Cosmoem to have the chance to catch an additional Cosmoem when it arrives in to game sometime soon!
- For your information, Cosmoem is vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, and Dark-type Pokemon. It acquires around 160% damage, while it can resist Fighting and Psychic-type.
- Also, ready yourselves to complete Field Research tasks on the given days of the event. Get the chance to earn Stardust, Evolution items, and some Mega Energy. Cheers for productivity, Trainers!
Wild Encounters and Evolutions
It wouldn’t be the best and perfect GO event without wild encounters and a few Evolution challenges on the side. So get to know all the Pokemon you can frequently see in the wild during the Evolving Star event!
- If you are persistent in Collection Challenges in the AR game, this event focuses on evolving Pokemon, so you better have those candies to bring your Pokemon to their next form! Four Collection Challenges await you and complete them to receive Evolution items.
- By the way, check out the Evolution Cup too. Eligible Pokemon must be evolved once and can be evolved again, and must be at or below 1,500 CP to join. This is the season of evolving too, so we hope we can see a sneak peek of your Pokedex, Trainers!
Mega Pokemon encounters and Raids
New Pokemon? Check. Field Research story? Check. Wild encounters and evolution challenges? Check and check. We only have one more agenda for today, the Mega Pokemon encounters and Raids. Let’s finish this one with the game Raids, shall we?
