Uncover mysteries in Pokémon GO with POKÉMON Detective Pikachu!

Announced earlier today was a crossover event for Pokemon GO to tie-in with the new Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie releasing later this month. The event will run from 1pm (GMT-7) on May 7th, until 1pm (GMT-7) on May 17th. Keep reading to learn what perks this event will bring!

Like any in game event for Pokemon GO, wild spawns and raid bosses are a shoe-in, thus, Pokemon that appear in the movie will appear more frequently in the wild, as well as raid bosses. What these Pokemon are are currently unknown, but a promo video shows that at least Pikachu, Snubull, Jigglypuff, Aipom and Psyduck will be in this mix somewhere. It also implies Cubone will be here, as well as Charizard, Blastoise, Lickitung, Machamp and Snorlax appearing as raid bosses - though this part is purely speculative. Shiny Aipom will also be released in the wild, according to the Pokemon website.

 Specially themed field research and avatar items will also be available during this period, and any Pokemon caught during the event window will yield double EXP! The main kicker, however, is Detective Pikachu himself, who may photobomb pictures you're taking of your Pokemon. It's common for these unique Pokemon to reappear later, but since this is for a movie premier, it seems unlikely it'll return, so you better be quick if you want to grab one for yourself!

As mentioned, the event will run from 1pm May 7th, until 1pm May 17th. In Australian time, this is 6am on May 8th to 6am on May 18th. Happy hunting!
