For the first time ever, Incense will attract certain Pokémon of certain types during specific time periods. Regardless of the time though, all Incense will attract Sentret during the event. Who knows—you might encounter a Shiny one!

We’re continuing to prioritize Pokémon GO experiences that can be enjoyed in individual settings. Inciense will last for one hour until further notice, so be sure to activate one during the event to experience the Type Shuffle!
