Events are frequently the best way to catch rare Pokemon and gather valuable resources that are needed for high-level play. Here is where we have a list of all current events, as well as known future events for Pokemon Go.

Please note that while Raid Bosses may be connected to some events, they will generally not be covered here beyond being shown on the calendar. To see more detail, please visit our Raid Boss List page.

Weekly Events

Along-side special events, Niantic has instituted several weekly events that are currently ongoing. Since these are standing events, they will not generally be added to the calendar or list. Note that these events are not guaranteed, and can be canceled with little to no notice.
