Players of Pokemon GO are starting to reap the rewards of the game’s Season of Legends. We’ve already had a variety of unique and exciting encounters in the wild, as well as our first set of raid changes, from Incarnate Forme Landorus to Incarnate Forme Tornadus, as well as Community Day in March, and now we’re about to get our first major event. With the help of the Compass Pokemon, Nosepass, players can “search for Legendary Pokémon” in Searching for Legends.
The event begins Tuesday, March 9 at 10 a.m. local time, for all players. It will last a few days, ending on Sunday, 14 at 10 a.m. local time.
Legends Featured Pokemon
Nosepass, who will be available in its shiny form for the first time, will be one of the main Pokemon to appear.
This Pokemon is likely to be extremely common, so check as many as you can to increase your chances of getting a shiny one. The Pokemon’s shiny form, which changes from blue to a bright yellow/gold color, is one of the coolest new releases in a long time.
Diglett, Drilbur, Geodude, Magnemite, Aron, Baltoy, and Roggenrola are some of the other Pokemon that have been spotted in the wild. This Pokemon, as well as Alolan Diglett, Alolan Geodude, Lairon, and Beldum, will be drawn to Incense.
Magnemite, Nosepass, Aron, Baltoy, Beldum, and Drilbur will all hatch from 5km eggs, causing a shakeup in the egg population.
Raids will be refreshed in addition to wild Pokemon and eggs. Alolan Diglett, Nosepass, Roggenrola, Drilbur, Ferroseed, and Klink will be featured in One-Star raids, while Alolan Graveler, Magneton, Skarmory, and Metang will be featured in Three-Star raids.
You’ll need to try something different if you want to evolve Nosepass (or Shiny Nosepass if you’re lucky). To do so, players must go to a Pokestop and use a Magnetic Lure Module there. Nosepass will evolve into Probopass while in the vicinity of that stop (providing you have 50 Nosepass candy).
