  • Trades made during the event and up to five hours afterward will require 50% less Stardust.
  • Players can get event-themed stickers by spinning PokéStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop
  • Bonuses for groups: If enough Pokémon are caught with help from a single Lure Module, the 3× XP bonus for catching Pokémon near the Lured PokéStop will be increased to a 4× bonus XP for 30 minutes.
From 2:00pm to 7:00pm local time, unique Four-Star Raids will take place.
