The event in Pokémon GO will last from Jan. 19 to Jan. 23, with players having several rare Pokémon to encounter throughout.

Darumaka is the most notable event Pokémon, considering the fact that it, among many other Pokémon, has the chance to be found in its shiny form if players look hard enough.

Event bonuses also include:

  • Increased chance to become lucky friends with their Pokémon
  • An additional Special Trade to be made in a day
  • Better chance of finding Lucky Pokémon in trades
  • Doubled stardust from opening gifts
  • Other bonuses to be chosen from after completing Timed Research tasks!

During the event, players should make sure to try and find as many elusive event Pokémon as possible. You'll only have until Monday, Jan. 23, at 8 p.m. local time before the Pokémon go back to normal encounter rates and the bonuses dissipate.

The Lunar New Year event in Pokémon GO goes live tomorrow at 10 a.m. local time.
