Rivals’ Week is the latest in the long line of Pokemon Go events. Instead of cooperation, the focus this time is on rivalries. Two new pokemon are being added to the game, and a new five-star raid boss is also present. One of the global challenges added for the event requires trains across the game to take part in 40 million raids. There are also new rewards, exclusive research and more. If you want to know the details, scroll down and keep reading our Pokemon Go Rivals’ Week 2021 guide.
Pokemon Go Global Challenge rewards
The Global Challenge requires traines to collectively battle in 40 million raids. That may sound like a lot – well, it is a lot – but when spread out across the entire planet, it shouldn’t be much of a problem. The event will be on until April 18th.
As for the rewards, if the community manages to band together and complete the challenge, everyone will get double catch stardust for the remainder of the event.
Rivals’ Week event-exclusive research
There are three event exclusive research tasks:
- Catch three Fighting-type Pokemon – Rewards: Hyper potion x2, Revive x1
- Catch 15 Fighting-type Pokemon – Rewards: Zangoose, Seviper encounters
- Win a Raid – Rewards: Skrelp, Clauncher encounters
Skrelp and Clauncher are the two making their debut in the game. Apart from these research tasks, you’ll also find them in the wild and in raids. Therian Forme Landorus is also new, but it appears only in five star raids. Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose and Seviper will be appearing more often in the wild, while Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Zangoose and Seviper will appear in raids as well. While the event is one, you’ll be able to get Machop, Tyrogue, Elekid, Magby, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose and Seviper from 5km eggs.
