Pokemon GO A Very Slow Event Details - Start Time, Research, Rewards and Spawns

After a very solid Community Day, Niantic is moving players into the first major Pokemon GO event of the Season of Discovery.

As you would expect, the event will bring about new spawns, raid bosses and a debuting Mega Pokemon.
