Inkay, which has just been added to pokemon go around this time last year, it’s having another event focused on the psychic-type squid. Players will be able to encounter Shiny for the first time during the event.
pokemon go today announced limited research with Pokémon. The event starts on September 3 and is only available for a short period of time during the day. Trainers will have access to limited research from 11:00 a.m. local time until 2:00 p.m.
In addition to the introduction of Shiny Inkay, there will be a host of bonuses available for Trainers to participate in. There will be more Pokémon to encounter in the wild and a higher chance of finding Inkay in its Shiny form. Inkay will only be found when doing field research tasks and will not spawn in the wild.
Below are all of the augmented spawns that will take place during the three-hour event. An asterisk next to a Pokémon indicates that trainers can find it in Shiny form.
- Alolan Rattata*
- I purred
- Galarian Zigzagoon* (rare appearance)
In addition to the increased wild spawns and Inkay field research tasks, players will also get double catch candy.
Players who catch the Shiny Inkay will be able to evolve it using the normal method to turn Inkay into Malamar by flipping their phone over when they have enough Inkay Candy. Players who haven’t had a chance to evolve their Inkays yet can now use their Pinap Berries to get the 50 candies needed to evolve it.
Once the event ends at 2pm local time, Inkay will likely be hard to find, so players should take advantage of the event window for the best chance of acquiring a Shiny Inkay.
