Pokemon Go has kicked off its solstice-themed event today, and it will continue until June 20, 2021. The Pokemon Go solstice event is in celebration of the days getting longer in one hemisphere and the nights in the other. During this event, players will encounter different Pokemon depending on which hemisphere they are playing in. The Pokemon Go solstice event will take place for four days until June 20.
Players in the southern hemisphere can expect Snorunt, Snover, Winter Form Deerling, and more Pokemon to appear in the wild. There’s a Shiny Snorunt as well for those who get lucky. These Pokemon will be appearing in raids in the southern hemisphere: Lapras, Piloswine, Snorunt, and more. Globally, Lunatone, Solrock, Klink and more Pokemon will be appearing in raids. During the course of the event, Lunatone and Solrock will be appearing in the wild globally. Later, Lunatone will be appearing exclusively in the eastern hemisphere, and Solrock exclusively in the western hemisphere.
There are rewards like encounters with Yanma in the northern hemisphere, Snorunt in the southern hemisphere, and even Silver Pinap Berries for those who complete event-exclusive Field Research tasks. Players will also get a surprise when taking snapshots. Your buddy will also give you gift items and Poke Balls more frequently during the event. Also, the walking distance required to earn hearts with your buddy will be halved during the event.
