Collection Challenge and Research Tasks
Twinkling Fantasy will feature a new Collection Challenge for ambitious trainers who want to do everything during the event and thematic research tasks will give players an increased chance at finding event Pokemon such as:
Pokemon Raids, Event Exclusive Zekrom, and the Debut of Mega Salamence!
This event will feature a slew of thematically appropriate raids for Twinkling Fantasy. The big standouts here are the debut of Mega Salamence, and a Zekrom knowing the Charge Move Fusion Bolt! Zekrom is the perfect Pokemon to go alongside Reshiram who just recently had an event where he could be caught knowing Fusion Flare.
