Pokemon GO Mega September Event Details Revealed

Just last week, Mega Pokemon were introduced in Pokemon GO. Now, thanks to The Pokemon GO Team, we already have details about the very first Mega Pokemon-themed event in the game. And if Pokemon GO fans are lucky, then they might even unlock a Halloween treat for completing the September Mega event.

First off, the event starts out tomorrow, so players don’t have much time to get ready. You’ll want to take advantage of the current remote raid pass bundle to participate in the increased number of Mega Raids going on in Pokemon GO.

This first part of the month-long Mega event runs from Sept. 1 at 8AM until Sept. 7 at 10PM (all times local). Besides the increased number of Mega Raids, the following features will also be active during this first week:

  • There will be an increased attack bonus from friends in raids.
  • Event-exclusive Field Research focused on raid-related tasks will be available for a limited time
  • You can receive Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise by completing limited event-exclusive Field Research tasks.
  • The following Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild: Abra, Magnemite, Exeggcute, Rhyhorn, Tangela, Electabuzz, Omanyte, Aerodactyl, Murkrow, Treecko, Torchic, Lotad, and Roselia.
  • If you’re lucky, you may even run into a Shiny Lotad!

So far, there’s nothing new when it comes to different species of Mega Pokemon. Right now we have Mega versions of the Kanto starters and Beedrill. But the second week may bring some new species of Mega Pokemon into the mix.

Week two will still focus heavily on Mega Beedrill, just like the current Special Research. However, if Pokemon GO trainers complete 275 million battles during the second week, then Mega Houndoom will be unlocked in Mega Raids.

What they mean by battle is extremely broad. Any Gym, GO Rocket, or Trainer Battles that aren’t GO Battle League will count towards the total. This challenge will be going on from Sept. 11 at 8AM until Sept. 17 at 10PM. Here are the features that will be active during week two:

  • You can receive Beedrill Mega Energy by completing event-exclusive Field Research tasks. When you use Mega Beedrill in Gym battles, Team GO Rocket battles, and Trainer Battles (excluding GO Battle League battles) during the event period, it’ll receive a temporary CP boost!
  • You can receive Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise by completing limited event-exclusive Field Research tasks.
  • The following Bug-type Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild: Caterpie, Weedle, Paras, Venonat, Scyther, Pinsir, Ledyba, Spinarak, Wurmple, Kricketot, and Burmy.
  • Team GO Rocket will be using different Shadow Pokemon during this event as well! Be sure to Mega Evolve Beedrill before you take on Team GO Rocket!
  • Be on the lookout for raid and battle-focused Timed Research during this event!
  • If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Ledyba!

Last, but not least is week three of the September Mega event. This is where you have a chance to unlock that Halloween treat. If you complete the Timed Research between Sept. 22 at 8AM and Sept. 28 at 10 PM, then you’ll unlock the Timed Research for the Halloween Event.

And of course, the featured Mega Pokemon during this event will be none other than Mega Gengar. You’ll also get to experience the following features during week three of the September Mega Event:

  • Mega-Evolved Pokémon will stay in their Mega-Evolved form for three times longer, increasing from four hours to 12 hours.
  • Poffin duration will double during the event.
  • Pokémon that are large in size will be appearing more frequently in the wild, including Doduo, Alolan Exeggutor, Pinsir, Lapras, Snorlax, Furret, Wobbuffet, Mantine, Skarmory.
  • If you’re lucky, you might encounter Shiny Doduo!
  • Find Pokémon that are large in size in raids throughout the event!
  • There will be an increase in Beedrill Mega Energy received from Field Research.
  • You can receive Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise by completing limited event-exclusive Field Research tasks.
  • Be sure to take a #GOsnapshot with your Mega-Evolved buddy! You might even have a surprise encounter with a Pokémon of the same species!

The Pokemon GO Team also reminded players about A Mega Discovery Special Research. It’ll be the first chance most players get to Mega Evolving a mon in Pokemon GO.
