We can’t go some-more than a few weeks though a new Pokémon GO eventuality being possibly announced or holding place, though something engaging has happened with this latest one. It’s been leaked online 10 days before it begins.
The trickle comes from Team Eevolution, who is building adult a flattering plain repute during this indicate with accurate leaks about Pokémon GO’s Gen 2, a Easter eventuality and a Water Festival in a past. As such, it stands to reason that this Fire and Ice eventuality unequivocally is happening. Here’s what they’ve listed as a “official” Niantic outline of a event, that again, is technically unconfirmed:
With summer fast entrance in a Northern Hemisphere and winter entrance in a Southern Hemisphere, we couldn’t consider of a improved approach to applaud a arriving solstices than with a Fire-type and Ice-type Pokémon GO event.
From 1:00 P.M. PDT on Jun 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on Jun 20, 2017, Trainers around a universe will learn some-more Charmander, Cyndaquil, Growlithe, Houndour, Ponyta, Swinub, Vulpix, and their Evolutions. You’ll also wish to keep an eye out for Sneasel, Magmar, Cloyster, and other Fire forms and Ice types!

Despite 3 corpulent paragraphs, it’s a comparatively elementary eventuality as distant as these things go. Increased spawns of Fire and Ice types, and XP bonuses for what seems to be each movement except evolutions, that is weird, given that’s what people caring many about during increasing XP events.
For those wondering what Pokémon competence be spawning during increasing rates given a Fire and Ice stipulation, that would be:
- Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard
- Vulpix, Ninetails
- Growlithe, Arcanine
- Ponyta, Rapidash
- Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion
- Slugma, Magcargo
- Houndoor, Houndoom
- Swinub, Piloswine
That’s a flattering far-reaching range, and includes a lot of Pokémon that are already flattering common. In Chicago, I’ve been drowning in Swinub and Jynx for ages now. And we know some dried regions are overshoot with Growlithe and Houdoor. But there are some profitable Pokémon in here, Lapras, a Charmander tree, a Cyndaquil tree. And we still don’t even have one Houndoor in a city here.
The problem, and I’ll go into this is in larger fact later, is that a fact that this eventuality is using from Jun 13th by Jun 20th, is that it unequivocally feels like that means that Pokémon GO’s “summer,” ie. a summer entirely of large events like Legendary spawns and a gym redo during a unequivocally least, is not going to flog off until July. While we comprehend Jul is a one year anniversary of a game, it seems like a rubbish if they’re loitering these large additions until after Jun passes, given that a continue is good and many players are on summer break. we knew we substantially wouldn’t get by summer though some arrange of glow and/or ice event, given a apparent tie there, though we unequivocally do wish that other, bigger things occur in Jun and Niantic doesn’t rubbish a third of summer doing zero of genuine significance.
Again, technically all of this is still a rumor, though a gossip from a arguable source and with impossibly specific details. we will refurbish things if Niantic confirms a event, though they don’t customarily do so until a few days out. Stay tuned.
