October is just around the corner now, and that means a new month of events for Pokemon Go. Developer Niantic has outlined some of the activities it has planned for the hit Pokemon mobile game next month, and they include the return of more Legendary Pokemon, a special Limited Research event, and more. Here’s a rundown of the events that are happening in Pokemon Go in October 2020.
October Special Research Breakthrough: Shedinja
Niantic is rolling out a new set of Field Research tasks and rewards starting October 1, and there will be a new Research Breakthrough encounter as well. Each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough next month, you’ll get a chance to catch the Bug/Ghost Pokemon Shedinja.
Niantic is bringing more Legendary Pokemon back to Raids in October. Throughout the month, you’ll have another chance to encounter the Legendary birds Zapdos and Moltres in five-star Raid Battles, as well as Origin Forme Giratina. Niantic also teases that a “special Raid boss” will appear during Pokemon Go’s Halloween 2020 event. You can see the full Raid schedule below:
