Save your incense and work towards you Bug Catcher Medal in the upcoming Bug Event

For the first time ever, Pokémon Go will experience an event dedicated to Bug-type Pokémon. All Bug-type Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild. Furthermore, Incense will last twice as long, providing you with the perfect opportunity to work on your Bug Catcher Medal.

A Bug’s Life

The Bug event will begin on the 2nd of April 2019 at 1:00 p.m. lasting for a whole week, 9th April 2019 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

When using incense during the Bug Event, not only will it last twice as long but it will attract even more Pokémon for you to capture, so make sure you stock up on your Pokéballs.

Capturing Bug-type Pokémon will help you toward earning your Bug Catcher Medal or increase its level. Earning or owning the medal will increase your capture success rate with that particular type of Pokemon. In this case, you will have a higher success rate of capturing Bug-type Pokémon with a Bug Catcher Medal.

More Bug-type Pokémon can equally be found by completing Limited Field Research Tasks that can be obtained by spinning the Pokémon Discs at PokéStops.

Embrace the warmer weather of spring into the Bug world and Let’s Go!
