Pokémon Go’s annual Festival of Lights even is now underway, introducing Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon Dedenne to the game for the first time, along with bonuses themed around rediscovering and strengthening bonds with friends. 

Along with Dedenne, other Pokémon that can act as guides, beacons, or signals will be appearing more frequently, including Blitzle, Tynamo, Darumaka, and Litwick. 

Throughout the event, which runs from Nov. 5 to 14, players can also encounter Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion in raids. The core members of the Swords of Justice will also know the exclusive attack Sacred Sword if captured during the Festival of Lights. 

Special bonuses will be available for players in India on Nov. 7, with trainers encountering Blitzle and Dedenne more frequently in the wild and getting double capture Candy. And while the event is focused on light, a dark shadow is looming, as Professor Willow notes Hoopa and Team Go Rocket might be making an appearance on Nov. 9. 

With all of that in mind, you can also complete event-exclusive Field Research too. And here are all of the tasks and rewards that will be available during the Festival of Lights this year.
