Pokémon Go Encourages Players to Help the Environment with Increased Shiny Rates

Sustainability Week in Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go players are gearing up for a major redesign as the popular app introduces Sustainability Week. This initiative not only includes new avatar designs but also encourages players to get outside and contribute to environmental efforts.

Increased Shiny Rates and Rewards

Starting from Monday, April 22, 2024, until Friday, April 26, 2024, players will enjoy increased shiny rates and rewards for every walk they take outside. This aligns with Pokémon Go's mission to motivate people to be active outdoors while promoting environmental awareness.

Exciting Bonuses for Players

During Sustainability Week, players can look forward to various bonuses, including more rewards for walking with their buddy Pokémon. This presents a great opportunity to earn candy for leveling up or purifying their buddies. Additionally, there will be increased chances of receiving souvenirs and presents, more time with buddies after feeding them, and reduced distances required to earn hearts with buddies.

Shiny Pokémon and New Field Research Tasks

Eggs that hatch within 2km during Sustainability Week will have a higher chance of containing shiny Pokémon, delighting collectors. Pokémon such as Combee, Drilbur, Trubbish, Foongus, and Binnacle will have increased shiny rates when hatched from 2km eggs. Moreover, new Field Research Tasks will provide opportunities to encounter these Pokémon with enhanced shiny chances.

Upcoming Events and Surprises

While Pokémon Go has hinted at upcoming events like Collection Challenges and Pokéstop Showcases for Sustainability Week, specific details have not been fully revealed. Players can anticipate more surprises and exciting activities as the week unfolds.
