Niantic have announced that Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are all coming back to Raids from November 1st to November 4th. Here’s the features for this event:

  • Regirock, Regice, and Registeel will be available to encounter in five-star raids.
  • The following Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild: Geodude, Magnemite, Swinub, Aron, and Spheal.
  • The following Pokémon will be hatching more often from Eggs: Aerodactyl, Shuckle, Sneasel, Skarmory, Snorunt, and Beldum.
  • If you’re lucky, you might encounter Shiny Skarmory, Shiny Regirock, Shiny Regice, or Shiny Registeel!
  • Bonus: 2× Incubator effectiveness

But that’s not all: Niantic have also announced a new type of event called A Colossal Discovery. It will allow players to encounter Regigigas, but unlike regular events like Community Days, it will required a paid ticket ($7.99). Buying a ticket will allow you to tackle a special set of tasks, and completing those is how you will get to encounter Regigigas. The event will take place on November 2nd, from 11AM to 7PM local time, with tickets available for purchase until 5PM local time.

Here’s what you will be able to get if you purchase a ticket:

  • A new Special Research story event, featuring an early-access encounter with Regigigas, appearing in Pokémon GO for the very first time!!
  • A Colossal Discovery medal
  • Up to 10 additional Raid Passes at no cost during the Special Research story event time period when you spin a Photo Disc at a Gym. These Raid Passes will not be available after the event period is over. You cannot hold more than one Raid Pass at once.
  • A Unova Stone, a Sinnoh Stone, and an exclusive avatar pose (see below!) from conducting the Special Research

You can find more details about the events, including the tickets and how to purchase them, on this page!

Following this event, Regigigas will be available via EX Raids later in November.
