In addition to the Pokemon above that you can find in the wild, you are also more likely to find 2 KM Eggs that hatch into Tyrogue, Feebas, Burmy and Happiny.
The event lasts from now until December 12 at 1:00 p.m. PST, according to Niantic. In addition to increasing the spawn rates for the Pokemon above, the event also offers exclusive Field Research Tasks. Most of the tasks award evolution items used to evolve most of the Pokemon above. You can see a full list of all the Research Tasks exclusive to the Evolution Event by clicking here.
The Shiny variant of Burmy and its evolutions, Wormadam and Mothim, was also released at the beginning of the event and you can find pictures of them here along with a guide on how to increase your chances of encountering them.
In addition to all that, all Lure Modules, including the Glacial, Magnetic and Mossy Lure Modules used to evolve certain Pokemon, will last for one hour as opposed to a half hour for the duration of the event. You’ll also get twice the XP when evolving Pokemon and find evolution items by completing Raid Battles.
But that’s not all! Niantic is also planning an Evolution Event Raid Day on December 7, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in your local time zone. You’ll fight Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle in one-star Raids; Ivysaur, Charmeleon and Wartortle in two-star Raids; and Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise in four-star Raids. Players can receive up to five Raid Passes by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms during the time period of Raid Day. The Raid Passes will not stay with you after the event is over and you cannot hold more than one Raid Pass at once.
Don’t forget about the Community Day event for December, which will let you encounter Pokemon featured during Community Day events all throughout 2019 and 2018 more frequently in the wild, in Raid Battles and from Eggs. Evolving these Pokemon during the two-day event will give that Pokemon their Community Day exclusive move. Check out Niantic’s blog post for a full rundown of the event and all the Pokemon featured.
