Sizeable Surprises Event Arrives in Pokémon Go: Shiny Kartana, Celesteela, and Wimpod Await

24. March 2024 by Never

Niantic hits the mark with Pokémon Go’s latest event, Sizeable Surprises, promising exciting additions including Shiny variants for Kartana, Celesteela, and Wimpod. Running from April 4 to 9, this event celebrates Pokémon of all sizes, from the tiny Joltik to the towering Alolan Exeggutor and Snorlax.

Shiny Discoveries

Trainers will have the chance to encounter Shiny Wimpod for the first time during this event, alongside boosted odds of encountering Shiny Wailmer. The announcement of these shiny variants has garnered positive reactions online, with players expressing enthusiasm for the increased rates and hoping for a glimpse of XXS showcases.

Legendary Encounters

Shiny Kartana and Shiny Celesteela will make their debut in five-star Raids during the event. However, there’s a catch—Kartana will appear in the Southern Hemisphere, while Celesteela will be exclusive to the Northern Hemisphere. Some players have raised concerns about region-locked raids, particularly in light of the limitations posed by Remote Raids.


Rare Pokémon Sightings

In addition to the shiny debuts, rare Pokémon like Tynamo, Cetoddle, and Mantine will be featured encounters throughout the event. The availability of Mantine and Kartana presents a welcome opportunity for PvP players looking to bolster their teams for the Go Battle League.

Sizeable Surprises Event in Pokémon Go: No Ticketed Content, Just Fun! Enjoy Collection Challenges, Shiny Debuts, and More

Unlike previous events, Sizeable Surprises will not feature any ticketed content, a relief for players fatigued by Niantic’s emphasis on paid content. While there won’t be event research, trainers can still enjoy a Collection Challenge and double XP for catching Pokémon with Nice Throws or better.

With its diverse lineup of Pokémon and exciting shiny debuts, Sizeable Surprises promises to be a captivating event for Pokémon Go players worldwide.
