To celebrate the equinox, Pokemon Go is having an event featuring Grass-type Pokemon!

From March 19, 2019 at 1pm PST until March 26, 2019 at 1pm PST we will have the following:

  • Grass-type Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild. Pokemon like Oddish, Exeggcute, Sunkern and Shroomish.
  • Grass-type Pokemon will be featured in Raid Battles
  • Limited Time Field Research will feature Grass-type Pokemon
  • Lunatone and Solrock will switch hemisphere regions at the start of the event and will stay in their new regions after the event ends. Lunatone will switch to Europe/Asia/Australia and Solrock will switch to the Americas/Africa.
  • New moves will be added to the game permanently.
  1. Acid Spray: Arbok, Victreebel, Tentacruel, Muk, Alolan Muk, Quagsire, Qwilfish, Octillery, and Swalot.
  2. Leaf Tornado: Victreebel and Shiftry.

No new shiny Pokemon has been announced. Will we have a surprise shiny once the event starts or will we simply don’t get a new one this time (just like with Rayquaza)?
