Pokemon GO: Charge Up Electric Event - Start Time, Research, Rewards and Bonuses

Here are the details you need for the upcoming Pokemon GO event.

The Season of Legends is proving to be a very busy, and exciting time for Pokemon GO players.

The season has ushered in a range of new wild Pokemon, regular Raid Boss changes and different research tasks. Trainers are also able to take part in tons of different events.

Alongside the usual Community Day and Spotlight Hours, Niantic has already given us “Searching for Legends” and we’re now about to enter our second major event of March, Charge Up.

This new event will focus specifically on Electric-type Pokemon. Here are all the details you need to know about the Pokemon GO Charge Up Event.

Start Time and Date

The Pokemon GO Charge Up event starts on Tuesday, March 16 and will begin at 10 am local time for all players. It’s set to run for almost a week and will end on March 22 at 8 pm local time.

The event is set to bring a bunch of Electric-type Pokemon to the wild, eggs and raids. Here are all the details on those so far.

One of the main attractions of this event is the debut of the Tynamo family. The EleFish Pokemon will be available in 5km eggs, one-star raids and the wild.

The Pokemon confirmed to be joining Tynamo in the wild are the likes of Alolan Geodude, Electrike, Stunfisk and Voltorb.

Once again, raid bosses will also be getting a shake-up. They will look as follows:

One Star: Blitzle, Klink, Shinx, Tynamo and Voltorb
Three Star: Alolan Raichu, Alolan Graveler, Ampharos and Magneton
Five Star: Therian Forme Thundurus will be making its debut
Mega Raids: Mega Abomasnow, Mega Houndoom and Mega Manectric (who will be appearing for the first time).

Finally, 5km eggs will be getting a shake-up, with Electrike, Elekid, Joltik, Pichu, Shinx, Stunfisk and Tynamo all hatching.
