Mass outbreak of Clefairy under a full moon
First announced in an update to the official Scarlet & Violet website following the August 8th Pokémon Presents video presentation, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet's first Mass Outbreak Event featuring Clefairy will commence on September 29th at 00:00 (UTC) / September 28th at 17:00 (PDT), running through to October 1st at 23:59 (UTC) / 16:59 (PDT).

During this time period, outbreaks of Clefairy will be occuring across both Paldea, where the species does not normally appear, as well as in Kitakami. Clefairy from these outbreaks will be more likely to be encountered with the Upbeat mark.

This event occurs during the Japanese Tsukimi (月見 "moon viewing") festival, which Pokémon are celebrating with a number of minor events focused around Clefairy, including a special Mid-Autumn Harvest Moon Special Program livestream on the Japanese Weathernews LiVE channel.

To participate in this mass outbreak event, players will need to download and install the latest update data following the release of The Teal Mask; and to download the latest Poké Portal News. If players have connected their Nintendo Switch system to the internet while playing Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, this should happen automatically. Players can also manually download the Poké Portal News by selecting Poké Portal from the X menu, and then selecting Mystery Gift, and then Check Poké Portal News.

While purchasing the DLC will not not be required to participate in this first mass outbreak event with Clefairy, future mass outbreak events may be restricted to Kitakami, or to other areas only unlocked by the DLC. As with Tera Raid events, in order to participate in limited-time mass outbreak events, players will need to have downloaded the latest update data and the latest Poké Portal News. A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is not required to receive Poké Portal News.
