Pokémon Go has already started the Sinnoh Celebration Event, and some of its novelties are going to please the fans. Two new shiny (shiny) forms are activated, 7km eggs change their contents, and themed Field Research appears.
The Sinnoh event began on February 7, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. and will continue until Monday, February 10 at 10:00 p.m., according to the local time of each country.
We may still be preparing counters for Tornadus, who has just made his debut in 5-star raids, and the bonuses from this event may help us defeat and capture him.
Sinnoh is the region where the games are developed Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum (the 4th generation), inspired by Hokkaidō, the island north of the Japanese archipelago. There were originally discovered creatures much loved by fans, such as Lucario, Leafeon, Glaceon or Arceus.
So let's see what these days dedicated to Sinnoh in Pokémon Go will give of themselves:
Field Research and Rewards
During the Sinnoh event some themed field research tasks were released, featuring 4th generation pokémon, which are worth the shame to take advantage These are the tasks that will appear at PokéStops and their associated rewards:
- Catch 5 Kricketot -> Combee.
- Catch 3 Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup -> 1,000 Stardust.
- Use a Sinnoh Stone to evolve a Pokémon -> Cranidos.
- Open 5 eggs -> Sinnoh Stone.
- Win in a raid -> Hippopotas (shiny chance).
We must remember that Woobat has been released in the weekly reward, and will be available until March 1st. Since the tasks are simple and attractive, it will be easy to obtain it or, if we already have it, get candies to evolve it into Swoobat without spending precious Rare Candies.
News in 7 km eggs
During the Sinnoh Celebration we may be interested in the 7 km Eggs, which are obtained by opening gifts from our friends. As soon as an egg hatches, we must open gifts until a 7 km egg hatches (to avoid the 2 km, 5 km and 10 km eggs that appear at PokéStops).
And, instead of the Alola forms, during the Sinnoh event when the eggs hatch these pokémon will come out:
- Budew (possibility of shiny).
- Bronzor (possibility of shiny).
- Gible (possibility of shiny).
- Riolu (possibility of shiny).
- Hippopotas (possibility of shiny).
Riolu and Hippopotas already have shiny
Lastly, the shiny versions of Riolu (which evolves into Lucario) and Hippopotas have been activated. Let's remember that Hippopotas, apart from evolving into Hippowdon, has a different appearance depending on whether it is male or female, which remains shiny.
More wild Pokémon originally discovered in Sinnoh will be appearing during the event, so keep an eye out. The shiny ratios of these new additions are unknown, but Hippopotas is much easier to find wild than Riolu.
While the arrival of the Battle League in Pokémon Go has added interest, it's good news that themed events continue apace. Of course, the Sinnoh regional Pokédex already has few slots for most players.
What do you think of the celebration of Sinnoh in Pokémon Go? Are you more interested in field research, 7 km eggs or the new Shiny?
