Thoughts on this event

This is a somewhat short event although the boosts for the event are nice

The raids for this event aren’t especially appealing

Galarian Ponyta appearing in the wild will appeal to many players

Two new Pokemon debuts will appeal to players wanting new releases in the game

Pikachu in the wild will be good for players working on their Pikachu medal. Litwick in the wild will give players a chance to further stock up on Litwick Candy as Litwick community day takes place part way through this event. Afer the community day, Litwick will also have its shiny released into the game
