Trainers can take to the skies during the Pokemon GO Air Adventures event, which introduces Mega Latios and Mega Latias to the game, offers some new Research, and more! This event features Pokemon associated with flying and the sky, and it offers a new opportunity to catch Flying Pikachu. For all the details, read on.

Another big event this month is Community Day! Check out our guide to Alolan Geodude's Community Day in Pokemon GO. 

Pokemon GO Air Adventures: Date And Time

The Air Adventures event in Pokemon GO is only on for a short time. 

The event will run from Tuesday, May 3 at 10am local time to Sunday, May 8 and 8pm local time.

Pokemon GO Air Adventures: Bonuses

A handful of bonuses will be in effect during the event. Here's a list: 

  • Eggs require half the walking distance to hatch
  • New stickers are available from gifts, PokeStops, and the in-game shop
  • Team GO Rocket balloons are appearing every hour

Pokemon GO Air Adventures: Electrify The Sky Research And Field Research Tasks

During the event, two types of research will be available, titled Electrify the Sky. 

First, a set of Timed Research will show up in the Today tab. Here are the tasks and rewards: 

  • Catch 30 Flying-type Pokemon: 50 Latios Mega Energy
  • Catch 10 Pikachu: 50 Latias Mega Energy
  • Overall completion rewards: 3,000 XP, Flying Pikachu encounter

Additionally, there are a handful of Field Research tasks available: 

  • Catch 3 Flying-type Pokemon: Flying Pikachu encounter
  • Catch 10 Pokemon with weather boost: Doduo encounter
  • Defeat 3 Team GO Rocket grunts: Emolga encounter
  • Purify a Shadow Pokemon: Swablu encounter

 

Pokemon GO Air Adventures: Wild Spawns And Eggs

Certain Pokemon will spawn in the wild for the duration of the event, and some other Pokemon will be available in eggs. 

Wild Spawns: 

  • Flying Pikachu
  • Jigglypuff
  • Meowth
  • Psyduck
  • Doduo
  • Magikarp
  • Wingull
  • Swablu
  • Drifloon
  • Charizard (rare)
  • Mantine (rare)

  • Togepi
  • Mantyke
  • Noibat
  • Emolga

Pokemon GO Air Adventures: Mega Latios, Mega Latias & Raids

Last, but certainly not least, is arguably the most exciting feature of the event. During the Pokemon GO Air Adventures event, Mega Latios and Mega Latias will be in Raids. 

These Raids are the most difficult yet, being Tier 6. You'll need some good Pokemon and several other Trainers to take down these two Mega Legendaries. 

Fortunately, it's worth it for more than just the Pokedex entries. Mega Latios is a top dog in the game's meta, and both will have special moves exclusive to this event. 

Latios caught during this event will know the charged move Luster Purge. Latias caught during this event will know the charged move Mist Ball.

Joining Mega Latios and Mega Latias are a few Pokemon in Tier 3 Raids:

  • Charizard
  • Togekiss
  • Lapras

Strangely, it seems that there are no Tier 1 Raids occurring during this event.
