What you need to know
- Team GO Rocket is disrupting Pokémon habitats.
- Shiny Ekans and Koffing will appear in Eggs, in the wild, and in Raids.
- It starts Thursday, July 25, 2019, at 1 p.m. until Thursday, August 1, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)
- Other Pokémon will spawn more frequently.
With the Team GO Rocket Disruption event finally in full swing, the team at Niantic have added some more goodies to collect along the way. There are a couple of new shiny Pokémon — Ekans and Koffing — to be found from today until August 1, 2019, as well as extra spawns of Pokémon that Team Rocket normally has with them.
Team GO Rocket's arrival seems to have disrupted Pokémon habitats! We have yet to understand why these Pokémon in particular are suddenly appearing more frequently. Perhaps they have some special significance wherever Team GO Rocket came from?
The list of Pokémon that will appear more frequently has a lot of common Pokémon in it, but there are some cool Pokémon to grab in there too, especially if they don't normally spawn in your area. Here is the least of the current features.
- Oddly specific Shiny Pokémon have started appearing! Our research has found that if you're lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Ekans or Shiny Koffing in the wild, in raids, or in Eggs!
- The following Pokémon will hatch more frequently from Eggs: Rattata, Ekans, Sandshrew, Zubat, Meowth, Machop, Magnemite, Grimer, Gastly, Drowzee, Cubone, Koffing, Murkrow, Sneasel, Houndour, and Poochyena.
- Raids will feature Pokémon that we believe are significant to Team GO Rocket.
The Niantic team did mention that they may be more surprises along the way so we will keep you posted about any new developments!
