Solstice Event.jpgNiantic has revealed more details for the Solstice Event coming to Pokémon GO this June, including the return of a Legendary Pokémon in five-star raids. Trainers will be able to encounter and catch different Pokémon depending on which hemisphere they're playing in. The event will take place from June 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Sunday, June 20, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

In the northern hemisphere, Yanma, Chimchar, Summer Form Deerling, and more will be appearing in the wild. Shiny Yanma can also be encountered. Trainers in the southern hemisphere will be able to encounter Snorunt, Snover, Winter Form Deerling, and more in the wild. Shiny Snorunt can also be encountered. Lunatone, Solrock, Spheal, and more will appear in the wild regardless which hemisphere they're in. Snorlax may also occasionally appear in the wild.

For Raid Battles, Alolan Marowak, Yanma, Petilil, and more will be appearing in the northern hemisphere, while Lapras, Piloswine, Snorunt, and more will be appearing in the southern hemisphere. Lunatone, Solrock, Klink, and more will be appearing in raids worldwide. The Colossal Pokémon Regigigas will return to five-star raids from June 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to July 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time. The Shiny variant will be making its Pokémon GO's debut. Raid-related Field Research will also be available from PokéStops exclusively during this period.

There will be event-exclusive Field Research tasks which give rewards like encounters with Yanma in the northern hemisphere, encounters with Snorunt in the southern hemisphere, and even Silver Pinap Berries. Take a few snapshots to encounter a surprise Pokémon. Your Buddy will give you gift items and Poké Balls more frequently during this event. The walking distance required to earn hearts with your buddy will be halved. After the event concludes, Lunatone will be appearing exclusively in the eastern hemisphere, and Solrock will be appearing exclusively in the western hemisphere.
