Pokemon Go Gift Event for August 5th

Pokemon Go will have an event from from Aug. 5 at 4 p.m. ET until Aug. 19 at 4 p.m. ET regarding gifts. Gifts will contain 2k eggs that will hatch 7k Pokemon. That means you’ll be hatching rarer Pokemon at a faster rate. Shiny Bonsly and Sudowoodo will also be released at this time.

Shiny Bonsly and Sudowoodo with their Shiny variants, which have pink shrubs with a yellow body, rather than green shrubs with a brown body

You’ll be able to hold 20 gifts and open 30 gifts a day during the duration of the event. I wish it was like that all the time.

This Saturday is Community day where eggs will hatch at 3x the rate. It may be worth hatching all the eggs you’re holding on to now so that you have space for the 5th.
