Pokémon Go’s “Glittering Garden” event runs from Aug. 5-8 and features grass-type Pokémon and promotes visits to parks during the event period.

The event cuts the distance you have to walk with your buddy to earn hearts, increases the chance of finding XL candy with your buddy, and increases hatch candy and stardust by 150%.

The event also introduces shiny Petilil and Lilligant, adding them to the game’s shiny roster.
