The event will also unlock extra bonuses for participating trainers, including Incense and Lure Module durations being increased to three hours, as well as triple experience whenever a Pokemon is caught.

Like previous events, a unique Special Research themed around Larvitar will be available for purchase in the Pokemon Go app. Tickets will cost $1, and completing the tasks will give players extra chances to catch Larvitar along with other bonuses.

Pokemon Go is available to download for free now on both iOS and Android devices.
