The last weekend was not a usual one, and all the fans of Pokemon Go already knew that, as the city of Dortmund, Germany was the host for the second Pokemon Go Fest event of the summer. Niantic always holds surprises for us, and this time they didn’t make an exception as the company conducted during the fest a series of Global Challenges for all the players around the world.
If you play the game and complete most of the challenges, you will get more bonuses. This way, Niantic will soon bring the Legendary Pokemon Entei back for a particular Pokemon Go Raid Day. If you play Pokemon Go until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST on July 16th, you will get three times more XP for catching and hatching Pokemon.
Besides, you can earn twice as much XP from Raids as usual, and if usually, a Lucky Egg lasted for 30 minutes, it will now last for an hour. Are you feeling amazed yet? If not, these bonuses are not all of the surprises.
Pokemon Go Entei Raid Day Comes With New Global Rewards
Do you remember Entei, one of the three Legendary Pokemon from Pokemon Gold and Silver? Well, Entei will make its appearance in Raid Battles this weekend. Clear your schedule on July 14th, from 4 o’clock to 7 o’clock, your local time, because you will then have the chance to battle the Legendary in five-star Raids. And you will also have the possibility to receive up to five free Raid Passes during that time. You will need the free Raid Passes to be able to participate in a Raid.
Before Entei, Niantic had a special Raikou Raid Day offered as a reward for completing a significant number of Global Challenges from Chicago’s Pokemon Go Fest. As it is evident, for the next event that will take place in Yokohoma, Japan in August, the third Legendary dog, Suicune, will be the one returning to the Raids.
We didn’t forget about Groudon, Pokemon Go’s present Legendary. Armored Mewtwo will replace Groudon on July 10th, today, making its debut and staying in the game until the end of the month.
