Oranguru and Shiny Cherubi will appear in Pokémon Go’s annual Sustainability Week event
Pokemon Go The annual Sustainability Week is back for a new round of promoting an active and sustainable lifestyle for players around the world, with several bonuses and new content items added to the game for the first time.
The event, which runs from April 20-25, will take players back to the lush jungle as Oranguru, the Wise Pokémon, makes his Pokemon Go start. The Normal/Psychic type is known for its extreme intelligence and spends a lot of time meditating or engaging in battles of wits with other intelligent Pokémon like Slowking.
In addition to Orangaru, other nature and recycling-themed Pokémon will also appear more frequently. This includes Turtwig, Oddish, Cherubi, Grimer, and Trubbish. Cherubi will also be available as Shiny for the first time if players are lucky enough to find one.
New field and timed research will be live throughout the event, focusing on walking distances and nature-inspired content, with a new collection challenge added as well. And, on April 23, for every player who walks 5km or more during the Stufful Community Day event, Niantic will plant a tree, up to 100,000 trees.
Players will need to use a Mossy Lure to complete certain tasks and challenges, as some Pokemon like Gloom and Weepinbell will only spawn when items are used. Luckily, you can claim an event box with a Mossy Lure mod once the event goes live for free in the in-game store.
Niantic is also offering another new live content during Sustainability Week. For the first time, players will get double XP for spinning a PokéStop for the first time, incentivizing players to travel a greater distance to take advantage of the bonus.
