Mega Ampharos is coming! Plus, get ready for an Incense Day featuring Mareep!

Trainers,

We’re excited to announce that Mega Ampharos will be coming to Mega Raids beginning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time! Plus, on Sunday, January 24, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, you’ll be able to enjoy an Incense Day event featuring Electric-type Pokémon, Dragon-type Pokémon, and more!

During this event, Incense will attract more Mareep, and you could even encounter a Shiny Mareep if you’re lucky! Evolve Flaaffy (the evolved form of Mareep) during the event to get an Ampharos that knows the previously Community Day–exclusive attack Dragon Pulse! An event-exclusive 1 PokéCoin bundle featuring three Incense will also be available to pick up in the shop.

In addition to Mareep, different Pokémon will be attracted to Incense at different times. During times that feature Electric-type Pokémon, you might encounter Pikachu, Magnemite, Voltorb, Chinchou, Mareep, Plusle, and Minun. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Stunfisk! During Dragon-type hours, Dragon-type Pokémon and Pokémon that evolve into Dragon-type Pokémon will be attracted to Incense, including Horsea, Dratini, Mareep, Trapinch, Vibrava, and Swablu. If you’re lucky, you could encounter a Bagon!
