Pokemon Go has a handful of events lined up for September 2020, starting with Mega September–a three-week event revolving around Mega Evolutions. Each week will have a different focus, and if players can hit certain milestones, Niantic will introduce additional Mega-Evolved Pokemon in the game.
Although Mega-Evolved Pokemon are the primary focus of Mega September, there will be plenty of other rewards available during the event, including new Shiny Pokemon to catch. You can see a full breakdown of the Mega September event below.
Week 1: Mega Raids
- September 1 (8 AM local) – September 7 (10 PM local)
The first leg of the Mega September event revolves around Mega Raids, a new tier of Raid Battles that pits players against a Mega-Evolved Pokemon. Throughout the week, Mega Raids will occur at Gyms more frequently than usual, and you’ll get an increased attack bonus if you raid alongside friends. If players around the world can clear two million Mega Raids before the week ends, Niantic will introduce Mega Pidgeot as a Mega Raid boss.
