Trivia

  • During this event, Kyogre stopped being available as a Legendary Raid Boss on February 14th and Rayquaza started to be available as new Legendary Raid Boss from February 9th to March 16th, 2018. [1]
  • During this event, non-Hoenn region-exclusive Pokémon were still spawning in the wild, so tourists could catch them, if they happened to be in any other region with exclusive Pokémon even during the event.
  • Just like with previous event, this event hasn't got an official name as creators didn't give it anywhere when it was announced.
