Pokémon GO Dragon Week Featured Pokémon
Pokémon GO Dragon week is a wonderful opportunity for the trainers to catch some dragon type Pokémon, along with some rare shiny species of the same. All the trainers during Dragon Week would have a chance to catch as many as ten different species of Dragon type Pokémon that are listed below.
|Horsea||Wild / 7 KM Egg|
|Dratini||Wild / 7 KM Egg|
|Trapinch||Wild / 7 KM Egg|
|Swablu||Wild / 7 KM Egg|
|Bagon||Wild / 7 KM Egg|
|Gible||Wild / 7 KM (Only if Lucky)|
|Deino + Shiny||7 KM Egg (Only if Lucky)|
As you saw the list of all the Pokémon that are featured in the Dragon week. Some Pokémon such as Alolan Executor, Horsea, Dratini, Trapinch, Swablu, and Bagon will appear in the wild more frequently and will also hatch from a 7 KM egg during the dragon week, you will be getting any one of these from the eggs. The other Pokémon that would appear in the wild and hatch from the 7 KM egg is Gible, the first stage of one of the strongest dragon type Pokémon, Garchomp. Although, only the lucky trainers will encounter Gible, and get a chance to catch a shiny Deino as well. Note that during the dragon week, you will have a chance to catch one of the weather trio Pokémon Rayquaza from the 5 Star Raids.
Dragon Week Timed Research Tasks
Pokémon GO Dragon Week will have some timed research tasks, which on completion, would yield some good rewards. These kinds of timed research tasks are always great to have and provides an opportunity for the trainers to get some exciting rewards along with a chance to catch some rare Pokémon. We still do not know what the timed research tasks for this week would be, but there will be one thing for sure, and that is these timed research tasks will be of low difficulty and can be completed easily if done the right way.
It is always great to have such small events in Pokémon GO with a chance to catch some cool Pokémon belonging to different species. And, this time the whole week is dedicated to one of the most powerful specie of all, Dragon. Dragon type Pokémon are useful during raid battles and PvP battles. Not only this, during the week, but trainers also have a higher chance of encountering a cool looking Shiny Deino which is green in color in its shiny form, and evolves into Hydreigon, which is a pseudo legendary Pokémon.
So if you want to catch some decent dragon type Pokémon along with the chance to catch the shiny species, then get ready and do not miss any day during the event, complete all the timed research tasks during the week, and catch as many Pokémon as possible to increase your chances of getting a shiny.
