New Breakthrough Rewards

With May upon us, we are going to be getting new breakthrough rewards for completing our 7-day tasks. The Pokémon we will be seeing in this months’ breakthrough are Ho-oh, Lugia, Latios, and Latias. Although many people may have these mons already, don’t forget each one also has the potential to be shiny.

  • Catch Bonuses only apply to Pokémon appearing as part of this event

Tips/Tricks/Things to Remember

  • Groudon Raids: Although Ground-type is not the most useful in the current meta, Groudon is still a solid addition to your collection. As of now, Groudon is the most powerful Ground-type Pokémon and if used with Solar Beam, it can also be a solid Grass-type attacker as well. Groudon is by all means worth powering up, especially if you get a high IV shiny one!
  • 2x Stardust: With the boosted ground-type spawns amass, bust out those Star Pieces and rack up that valuable dust while you can! However, if you aren’t totally blinged out in those beautiful crystals, then we suggest you conserve them for the upcoming Torchic Community Day on May 19th when it will be 3x Catch Stardust!
  • 2x Candy: While double candy may not entirely be the most useful for Diglett, other rare Ground-type spawns are also double candy as well (it is an event for Ground-types, after all). It is a good time to grind out candy, and if you need it – Pinaps will net you 12 candies for Event spawns.
  • Shiny: Get’em while they’re boosted! Sandshrew, Cubone, Diglett, their evolutions, and more!

Final Notes

On a final PoGoMinders note, double dust for Event spawns as well as double candy is a good reason to get out there and hunt. On top of this, Groudon is an excellent addition to your Pokémon inventory. The Earth Day Event rewards were well worth the hype that preceded them. These rewards do end tomorrow at 1 pm PST though, so now is the time to reap the rewards while they’re still available.

Good luck out there, Trainers!
