Pokemon Go is adding its first Mega Legendary Pokemon following its major Mega Evolution remodel. During the Air Adventures event, which will also include special Pokemon appearances and research challenges, Mega Latios and Mega Latias will be introduced. Here’s everything you need to know about the new event.

Event schedule

The Pokemon Air Adventures event begins May 3 at 10 a.m. and will end May 8 at 8 p.m. If you want to get in on the action, now’s the perfect time since all 500 million of these ultra-rare Pikachu toys have been sold out (presumably).

Mega Legendaries

The Pokemon Air Adventures event will include Mega Latios and Mega Latias, which have never been seen in the popular competitive video game series before. The Charged Attack Luster Purge is known to any Latias you catch throughout the event, but the Charged Attack Mist Ball is new to her.

While searching for your missing companions, you’ll encounter the following Pokemon in the wild and in lower-tier raid battles during the Air Adventures event:

Wild spawns

  • Doduo
  • Magikarp
  • Mantine

Other event features

During the Air Adventures event, eggs will hatch faster than normal. Any eggs you put in incubators will hatch at half the usual time. You’ll also be able to obtain new, themed stickers from PokeStops, along with presents and the game’s item shop.

That isn’t all that is going on in Pokemon Go in May. The island guardian Tapu Fini will make her five-star debut on May 10, and there will be an Alolan Geodude Community Day event on May 21. In our Pokemon Go May events roundup, you may get a full overview of everything else going on in the game.
