- Select Pokémon featured in the movie will appear in raids.
- Pokémon that appear in the movie will show up more frequently in the wild.
- If you’re lucky, you could be photobombed by a Pikachu in a detective hat—with a chance to catch one of your very own!
- Double XP for catching Pokémon
- Specially themed Field Research will be available for a limited time during this event.
- Themed avatar items will be available in the Style Shop.
The event kicks off at 6 am AEST on Wednesday, May 8th and ends on May 17th.
