Pokemon Go Searching For Legends Event Adds Shiny Nosepass

The Searching for Legends event runs from March 9-14 and features various Ground, Rock, and Steel Pokemon.


Pokemon Go's Season of Legends is officially underway, and the first major event of the new season is about to begin. Starting today, March 9, at 10 AM local time, Niantic is holding a Searching for Legends event, and it'll give players their first chance to catch a Shiny Nosepass in the game.

Throughout the Searching for Legends event, the following Pokemon will appear in the wild more frequently than usual:

  • Diglett
  • Geodude
  • Magnemite
  • Nosepass
  • Aron
  • Baltoy
  • Roggenrola
  • Drilbur

Shiny Nosepass will also appear in the wild during the event, while Alolan Diglett, Alolan Geodude, and other Pokemon will be attracted to Incense. You'll also be able to encounter the following monsters in Raid Battles:

  • One-star Raids: Alolan Diglett, Nosepass, Roggenrola, Drilbur, Ferroseed, Klink
  • Three-star Raids: Alolan Graveler, Magneton, Skarmory, and Metang.

Finally, there will be event-exclusive Field Research and Timed Research tasks to complete during the event. These will lead to more chances to catch Nosepass, among other rewards. The Searching for Legends event runs until 8 AM local time on March 14. You can read more details on the Pokemon Go blog.

In the meantime, Incarnate Forme Tornadus has returned to five-star Raids until March 11, when it will be replaced by Thundurus. After that, Niantic will hold another Incense Day event. Throughout the event, Beldum and other Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon will appear more frequently when you use Incense, and you'll have another chance to get a Metagross that knows Meteor Mash.
