If you've been keeping up to date in Pokemon GO and feeling pretty spoiled by all the cool events like the Lickitung Raid that have been underway, then you'll probably be unsurprised by the fact that there's actually been a surprise Pokemon GO Fossil event that's popped up. Talk about a partner that knows how to make you feel special - we see you, Niantic. Here's what we know about the event so far and how to participate. 

Surprise Pokemon GO Fossil Event - What We Know

This new Fossil event caught us by surprise but if you've been wanting a way to kill time before the latest Community Day, then this is definitely what we're going to recommend. Here's basically how it all works: during this limited event, all 7km eggs will hatch into Fossil Pokemon. Additionally, you're not going to be able to get these Pokemon any other way in the future, so this is the time to stock up. The full list of Fossil Pokemon that you can get from these 7km eggs is as follows:

  • Aerodacty
  • Anorith
  • Archen
  • Cranidos
  • Kabuto
  • Lileep
  • Omanyte
  • Shieldon
  • Tirtouga

In addition to those Fossil Pokemon, we've also learned that Riolu will be obtainable from 10km eggs so if you've got those going on, it's time to make some strides in your collection if you're wanting to pick up that adorable baby Pokemon. There hasn't been a definite end date slapped on this surprise Pokemon GO Fossil event, so we would definitely just make sure to make the most of it while you still can before it gets fixed up by Spark, according to the official site.
