May is shaping up to be another busy month for Pokemon Go. In addition to the game’s limited-time Throwback Challenges, developer Niantic has announced two more events that will take place this month, both of which will give you a chance to catch more Shiny Pokemon.
First, Niantic will hold a Snubbull Limited Research event this Saturday, May 9, from 8 AM – 10 PM local time. Throughout the event, you’ll be able to complete special Timed Research tasks that lead to encounters with the Fairy Pokemon Snubbull, and you’ll also have a chance to catch its Shiny variant.
The following week, Niantic will host Pokemon Go’s second Incense Day. The event will take place on Sunday, May 17, from 11 AM – 5 PM local time. During that window, you’ll have a better chance of attracting Water- and Dark-type Pokemon with Incense. Carvanha in particular will appear more often throughout the event, and you’ll have a chance to encounter its Shiny version. You can read more about the events on the official Pokemon Go website.
As previously mentioned, Niantic is also offering special Throwback Challenges this month. There will be a new Throwback Challenge line every week, each revolving around a specific region from the Pokemon world.
Niantic is also bringing back a handful of Legendary Pokemon this month to celebrate the release of Remote Raid Passes. Altered Forme Giratina is currently available in Raids until May 12, at which point it will be replaced by Virizion. May’s Field Research tasks are also live. Each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough this month, you’ll earn an encounter with the Electric Pokemon Shinx.
