Pokémon Go’s solstice-themed event is returning from June 17 to 20 and bringing shiny Regigigas and different Pokémon appearing depending on which hemisphere you’re playing in.

Regigigas will be appearing in five-star raids until July 1, with shiny Regigigas and new raid-related Field Research being added to the game. Certain Pokémon, like Lunatone and Solrock, will be appearing more frequently around the globe, while others like Yanma and Snorunt will only be appearing in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere respectively. 

Here are all of the increased spawns, encounters, event raids, and more added during the event, including the details for hemisphere-specific appearances.
