Thoughts on the evolving stars event

This event has no stated “event boosts”

The mega gyarados raid day will be a fun event, as gyarados has lots of use in PvP as well as being a solid mega. The shiny is also one of the better one sin Pokemon GO

The spawns for this event feature lots of second evolution Pokemon which means more candies per catch and more stardust per catch

The Collection challenges will give players something else to work on during the event as well as just the research story

Xerneas makes it return to raids during the event and includes its shiny debut which will be sought after by many players
