Pokémon Go trainers who haven’t completed their Unova Pokédex yet will have the best chance of collecting more creatures this week thanks to the Unova Celebration Event. It launched earlier today in the hit mobile game and will last all week.

The event has welcomed Genesect with Burn Drive to raids. Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Dwebble (shiny available), Klink (shiny available), Herdier, Tranquill, Excadrill, and Amoonguss were also added to raids for the event.

Roggenrola, Sewaddle, Petilil, Emolga, Karrablast, Joltik, Elgyem, and Shelmet can hatch from five-kilometer eggs during the event. A dozen of spawn increases for Unova Pokémon that must be collected in the Collection Challenge were added, too.

Here are all of the Pokémon that must be collected to earn a special medal, as well as 3,000 Stardust, 30 Poké Balls, and five candies:

Those Pokémon, on top of more from the Unova region, had their spawn rate in the wild increased. Here’s the list:

  • Snivy (shiny available)
  • Tepig
  • Oshawott
  • Lillipup
  • Herdier
  • Blitzle
  • Roggenrola
  • Drilbur
  • Tympole
  • Venipede
  • Scraggy
  • Trubbish
  • Gothita
  • Solosis
  • Ferroseed

There a better chance that all of those Pokémon will appear in the wild during the event. They must be a part of your Pokédex to count as collected but don’t need to be captured again if they already were captured once. Lillipup, Roggenrola, Snivy, and Ferroseed have a chance to appear as shiny, too.

Completing Field Researches during the event will reward trainers with Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott encounters. This will help players who still need to evolve each starter from the region.

Unova was the fifth region added to Pokémon Go. The Pokédex includes all 153 Pokémon from the region and more of them can be collected as the new year is celebrated.

Meanwhile, the event dedicated to the New Year celebration will end in a few hours. That means it’s time to put your incubators to use if you haven’t already to enjoy the event’s bonus, which reduces the hatch distance required by half.
