After completing a weekend of challenges to celebrate Pokémon Go Fest in Dortmund, Germany, a week of new bonuses have unlocked in the game.

From now until July 16 at 4 p.m. ET, players will have access to the following bonuses:

  • Tripled catch XP
  • One-hour Lucky Eggs
  • Tripled hatch XP
  • Doubled raid XP

This bunch of rewards is heavily skewed toward leveling up and gaining that sweet XP. To make the best use of this, spend some time walking around your local Pokémon Go spots with a Lucky Egg. Unfortunately the bonus doesn’t include those juicy friendship rank ups, but these are still pretty nice.

The reward also includes the Legendary Entei returning to raids on July 14 during a time that’s to be announced. These raids will also allow players to possibly nab a Shiny Entei if they’re lucky.

More challenges will happen during the last Pokémon Go Fest in Yokohama, Japan come August.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
