The big weekend is here for Detective Pikachu, which means that tons of Pokemon fans will be heading to the movies to see if this film can really break the video game movie curse. In addition to enjoying the new film, Pokemon GO players also have an exciting tie-in event to participate in for a few more days.
The Pokemon GO Detective Pikachu crossover event is already underway and players have a handful of bonuses, tasks, and special spawns to keep in mind while playing throughout the event. Since there's so much to keep track of, some players may prefer to have all of the relevant information gathered into one convenient location.
Luckily, that's exactly what we have here. The team at Pokemon GO Hub put together a handy visual guide to the event, so that players can take full advantage of all of the bonuses and opportunities before they expire next week.
As the guide points out, players have through May 17 to take advantage of the bonuses and special spawns. Completionists will want to make sure that they collect a detective hat Pikachu, but that's not the only exciting opportunity. Shiny hunters will also want to take advantage of the increased spawn rates to snag a shiny Aipom before they become a lot more rare.
Collecting shiny Pokemon doesn’t give the trainer any kind of advantage in battle, but it is still a fun additional challenge to add into the game. Shiny Pokemon are perfect for leaving in Gyms to show off to the rest of the community.
Be sure to check back in the coming days for more Pokemon GO news, updates, and strategy guides.
Pokemon GO is currently available in select regions on Android and iOS devices.
