Niantic has recently announced that Mega Ampharos, the more fabulous looking version of the Light Pokemon, is now available in the game. To commemorate the occasion, an Incense Day event featuring a host of different Electric and Dragon-Type Pokemon will take place on January 24th.
During this time, Incense will attract more Mareep than usual, with a chance of encountering a Shiny version of the Wool Pokemon. Meanwhile, evolving a Flaaffy during the event will result in an Ampharos that knows the formerly Community Day-exclusive move, Dragon Pulse.
There will also be a 1 PokeCoin bundle available in the shop that contains three Incense, perfect for spending a day catching sheep. However, it won't just be Mareep that will be attracted to this item, there will be a series of different Pokemon available depending on the time of day.
At times, this will see more Electric-Types attracted to Incense including the likes of Pikachu, Magnemite, Voltorb, Chinchou, Mareep, Plusle, Stunfisk and Minun. Meanwhile, other times will be Dragon-centric, with chances to run into Horsea, Dratini, Mareep, Trapinch, Vibrava, Swablu and Bagon.
It will rotate back and forth between the two types throughout the duration of the event. The times you can expect to see either Electric or Dragon-Types are as follows:
- From 1:00 am to 1:00 pm – Electric-type Pokémon
- From 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm – Dragon-type or Pokémon that evolve into Dragon-types
- From 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm – Electric-type Pokémon
- From 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm – Dragon-type or Pokémon that evolve into Dragon-types
