In addition to those Pokemon, Sentret will appear much more often throughout the Incense Day event, regardless of what the featured type is, and you'll have a chance to catch a Shiny one. Niantic will also offer an event-exclusive bundle that will cost one PokeCoin and contain three Incenses. You can read more about the Incense Day event on the official Pokemon Go website.

In other Pokemon Go news, Niantic will soon be adding Remote Raid Passes to the game. As their name suggests, these will allow you to join a nearby Raid without leaving home. The developer has other tweaks in the work as well; you'll soon be able to activate multiple Lucky Eggs, Star Pieces, and Incenses at a time, as well as power up your Pokemon much more quickly by feeding them multiple Candies and Stardust at once.
