When Is The Air Adventures Event?

The Air Adventures event kicks off Tuesday, May 3, at 10:00 am local time and will run through Monday, May 8, at 8:00 pm local time. This event is celebrating the arrival of Mega Latias and Mega Latios to the game as mentioned above, with a focus on flying types and a few others like the return of Flying Pikachu.

During this event, there is also 1/2 Egg Hatch distance, which is always a big help for players. However, the biggest part of the event is the Air Adventures Timed Research that will give you a boost towards being able to Mega Evolve Latias and Latios.

Pokemon Go Air Adventures Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

The Air Adventures Timed Research in Pokemon GO is definitely one of the most basic and straightforward we’ve had in awhile, though the good thing is that it does give some great rewards.

Step 1

  • Catch 10 Pikachu – 50x Latias Mega Energy
  • Catch 30 Flying type Pokemon – 50x Latios Mega Energy
  • Rewards – 3,000 XP, Flying Pikachu encounter

As you can see, completing the two tasks within the one step research will reward you with 50x Mega Energy for Latias and Latios respectively.

To Mega Evolve the duo, you will need 300x Mega Energy for each of them. This means you will have to do the Mega Raids that are available for the two during this event, as that is the only other way to obtain Mega Energy for the two at this time.

Make sure to take advantage of this free Mega Energy that can be easily obtained during this event and best of luck in raids against Mega Latias and Mega Latios.
