To celebrate the Solstice, Pokémon Go is hosting an event from June 19 at 8 a.m. until June 24 at 10 p.m. in your local time.
While no new Shiny Pokémon are releasing with this event, it does provide the opportunity to find a Shiny Clefairy in the wild, rather than having to hatch a Shiny Cleffa from an egg.
There’s also doubled Stardust from catching Pokémon throughout the duration of the event.
Lunatone and Solrock are the real stars of the Solstice event and they’ll have heavily boosted spawns as they swap around regions during the event. All players should have opportunities to catch both, despite the fact that they are regional migratory Pokémon. At the end of the event, Lunatone will stay in the Western Hemisphere and Solrock will remain in the Eastern Hemisphere, so make sure to grab the one you need.
There’s also a handful of Field Research that you can grab from spinning Poké Stops.
