It is time to test your might, or in this case, your mettle as the Test Your Mettle event begins in Pokémon Go

Running from Sept. 16 to 21, players will see an increased number of Steel-type or Pokémon that evolve into Steel-types appearing in the game. 

On top of rare encounters like Riolu, Beldum, and Galarian Stunfisk players will also be able to encounter the Electric/Steel-type Togedemaru for the first time as Niantic continues to roll out the remaining Alolan Pokémon. Some Steel-type Ultra Beasts are also appearing in five-star raids during this event, with Celesteela available in the Southern Hemisphere and Kartana available in the Northern Hemisphere. 

And that’s not all, as Mega Aggron is also making its debut to round out the lineup. But don’t forget the event-exclusive Field and Timed Research that will be available too, and here is everything you need to know to complete those research tasks.
