Final Thoughts

This is the first time Mega Pinsir would be available in-game. Also, the shiny variants of Mega Pinsir and Tapu Fini will be available for the first time. The best part of the event is going to be the 2x catch candy. Pokemon Candies are a very important commodity in-game.

They are very much required for your Pokemon to reach their Max Potential, maybe via Leveling Up or by Unlocking an Extra Charged attack. Candies are very much important. So, during this event, players may try to use their saved-up lures or incense to make the best out of this event.
