Pokemon GO is working towards its one year anniversary with another awesome event for all trainers! Popularly coined as the Pokemon GO’s Fire And Ice Solstice Event, trainers can expect to see an increase in spawn rate for both Fire-type and Ice-type Pokemon from 4am, 13 June to 4am to 20 June 2017 (Singapore Time), one day ahead of the actual solstice. Other than the heightened spawn rate, there will also be other exciting bonus that aspiring trainers should take note and milk to the max. To help you do that, we are here to drop some hints and tips along the way!

‘With summer quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and winter approaching in the Southern Hemisphere, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming solstices than with a Fire-type and Ice-type Pokémon GO event.’ – Niantic.

1. Stock Up Pokeballs For Lots Of Fire & Ice Pokemon

The reason why we say this is an awesome event is because unlike the past events where you only get an increased spawn for one Pokemon Type for example Ghost Type Pokemon was the focus for Halloween, this new event gives you two at once. Before the event goes live, make sure you stock up enough Pokeballs to take advantage of increased spawn rates for Fire-type and Ice-type Pokemon. Go catch them all!

2. Get Ready To Catch These Pokemon! 

Although it was not officially mentioned by Niantic, trainers can expect to see an increased encounter rates for these Pokemon:

FIRE: Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Vulpix, Ninetails, Growlithe, Arcanine, Ponyta, Rapidash, Magmar, Flareon, Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion, Slugma, Magcargo, Houndoor and Houndoom.

3. Stunning Throw For Your Every Catch!

Niantic has finally decided to reward trainers who make an extra effort to execute awesome throws. Curveballs will enjoy special XP bonus for Nice Throws, Great Throws and Excellent Throws!

4. Don’t Forget To Hatch Those Eggs

While you focus on catching Pokemon, don’t forget to set all your incubators on because XP bonuses are also earned when hatching Pokemon Eggs.

6. Drive Up Your XP Efficiency  

50% off Lucky Eggs means it is time to milk your XP to the max! Stock up on candies and load your inventory with commons such as Rattata and Pidgey for mass evolutions as soon as possible. Given that trainers will see huge XP bonuses for throwing curveballs, you may want to test which method earns you better returns for your Lucky Eggs.

7. Stop Fighting & Start Developing 

Niantic may be temporarily disabling Pokemon GO Gyms during or after the event. This is to allow the team can prepare for a new update focused on collaborative group gameplay features that will get you playing Pokemon GO in fun new ways. When Gyms are temporarily disabled, all Pokémon will return to their Trainers. Trainers can focus on catching and developing their Pokemon during this period.
