New Pokemon Debuts & Shiny Pokemon During Sustainability Week

Events that happen in the world of Pokemon GO are usually some of the most exciting times, as new Pokemon will be added to this addictive mobile title. Sustainability Week is no different, as you’ll finally have the opportunity to capture Bounsweet and its evolutionary line. Thankfully, the evolution process is rather simple if you’re hoping to add a new Pokemon to your team.

  • Bounsweet evolves into Steenee with 25 Candy

For those of you who love the idea of a good old-fashioned Shiny hunt, you’ll finally have the chance to capture Drilbur or Excadrill in their Shiny Variants, as well. While Shiny Pokemon don’t offer any particular stat boosts or combat advantages, finding your favorite creature in a new colorway is always rather exciting. Keep your eyes peeled for a flash of stars at the start of your encounter with them, and an icon next to their name to signal that they are Shiny.
