A long awaited Shiny debut.

The Pokémon GO Scorching Steps event will take place from Friday, June 21 until Tuesday, June 25. Starting at 10am local time, and ending at 8pm.

This event will be all about Fire themed Pokémon, and Egg hatching. There is a very exciting Shiny Larvesta debut, boosted Shiny chances for Slugma and Litleo as well as some Egg related bonuses.

Event Bonuses

The Scorching Steps event will have the following bonuses:

  • 2× Candy from hatching Eggs.
  • 1/2 Egg Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event.
  • 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance for first three Eggs hatched during the event using the Pokémon GO Egg hatching widget.
  • Increased chance to encounter and hatch Shiny Slugma and Shiny Litleo.

It isn't yet clear what the Shiny rate will be for hatching Slugma or Litleo. However, it should be at least 1/64. Make sure you use the Pokémon GO Egg Hatching widget to get 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance.

Pokémon GO Scorching Steps Egg pools

The following will hatch from Eggs during the Pokémon GO Scorching Steps event. Remember that Eggs you already have will keep their old pools, so only Eggs you get during this event will hatch these Pokémon.

2km Eggs:

5km Eggs:
Hisuian Growlithe*

10km Eggs:

  • = Shiny avaliable.

Shiny Larvesta and Volcarona debut

The Pokémon GO Scorching Steps event will see the debut of Larvesta and Volcarona in the game. However, Niantic are not making Larvesta any easier to catch during this event. That means that hatching a Larvesta will be pretty rare, so hatching a Shiny Larvesta will be a very exciting hatch indeed.

10km Eggs will be your best chance, with only two other Pokémon in the Egg pool.

Here is Shiny Larvesta and Shiny Volcarona:


The event will have event specific Field Research, Timed Research and PokéStop Showcases.
