  • Sewaddle
  • Cottonee
  • Emolga

Unova five-star raid Pokémon

Genesect will be an exclusive legendary Pokémon you can capture during the event. You can find it at five-star raids at any of the available Gym locations in your region. You will want to bring at least five other trainers to help you take it down.

New Pokémon

Sewaddle, Cottonee, Emolga, and Bouffalant are making their debut in the game. Sewaddle, Cottonee, and Emolga will be available in the wild and 7km eggs during the event. Bouffalant will only be available for those in the New York City, USA, from 5km eggs. You won’t be able to capture it in the wild, raids, or the 7km eggs you receive from friends. To obtain the 5km eggs, visit any Poké Stops and Gyms near you and spin their discs to have one drop.

New Shiny Pokémon

Genesect and Roggenrola will have their shiny forms available for the event. You need to fight Genesect in five-star raids to find its shiny form. Roggenrola will be available in the wild, so try to use incense to lure it out and to your position.
