Pokémon Go Kalos event guide: Timed Research and rewards

Pokémon from the Kalos region are now starting to appear in Pokémon Go, so there’s an event to go with it.

From Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. until Dec. 8 at 10 p.m. in your local time, Kalos region Pokémon will be spawning more frequently and hatching from eggs. There’s also going to be Kalos region Pokémon appearing in raids.

Pokémon like the starters, Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, will be spawning more frequently, along with Bunnelby, Fletchling, Litleo and Noibat. The three starters will likely have a Community Day in coming years, so you may want to consider holding on to any high IV catches you may find.

There’s also a few special Field Research Tasks to complete that will reward the new Pokémon.
