Community days, bonus events, special raid battles and the new PvP mode are all features that have kept Pokemon Go players busy over the last month. Now, there are bonus rewards for Pokemon Go Adventure Sync!

Pokemon Go Hatchathon

The event has been dubbed the Adventure Sync Hatchathon! Various bonuses will be awarded every time you hatch an egg.

Furthermore, the chances of receiving a 5km or 10km egg from gyms and Pokestops are increased during the event.

Adventure Sync Bonuses

Specifically, the bonuses for the Hatchathon event are as follows:

  • Increased odds of receiving both 5km and 10km eggs from gyms and Pokestops
  • 2x Hatch Stardust
  • 2x Hatch Candy

The percentage increase of receiving the more coveted eggs isn’t stated.

However, you can increase your bonuses by playing with Adventure Sync activated! Those steps all add up!

Hatchathon Date & Time

The Pokemon Go Adventure Sync Hatchathon event has already started! It started on January 2, 1pm PST and will end January 15, 1pm PST. That’s 9pm GMT, 4pm ET and 6am JST.

The news of the special event was announced out of the blue by the official Pokemon Go Twitter account.

Adventure Sync Not Counting Steps

A frequent issue for Pokemon Go players is Adventure Sync not counting steps. Firstly, make sure your Adventure Sync is set up and is more importantly turned on!

The good news is most problems with Adventure Sync can be sovled with a simple fix. Our Pokemon Go Adventure Sync article lists a few of the more common resolutions to these problems.

The Hatchathon special event is the perfect excuse to play some Pokemon Go whilst keeping fit. Keeping your New Year’s resolution and receiving bonuses in Pokemon Go for it sounds like a great combination!

Judging by the increase in size and frequency of events in the latter stages of 2018, it looks like Niantic are intending to keep Pokemon Go players busy in 2019.

How to evolve Nosepass into Probopass in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go’s Hoenn Collection Challenge is in full swing, and Nosepass is one of several Pokemon players need to catch to complete the event. Here’s how to evolve your new Nosepass into a Probopass after you get your hands on one.

Leading up to its five-year celebration event – Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto – developer Niantic has a full schedule of activities to keep players occupied. Every week before the Kanto event kicks off, players have a chance to enjoy a Collection Challenge in one of the game’s regions.

The Hoenn Collection Challenge, running from January 19 to January 24, gives players an increased chance to catch various Pokemon from that region. Fan favorites like Mudkip, Plusle and Minun, and several others are on the list of Pokemon needed to complete the challenge.

Another Pokemon on that list is the Generation 3 Rock-Type Nosepass. Once caught, Nosepass can be evolved into the Steel/Rock-Type Probopass – with a small twist. Here’s how you can evolve your very own Nosepass after catching one.

How to evolve Nosepass in Pokemon Go

  1. Catch a Nosepass (if you don’t have one already)
  2. Acquire 50 Nosepass candy and a Magnetic Lure
  3. Travel to a PokeStop and activate the Magnetic Lure
  4. While standing in range of the PokeStop, evolve your Nosepass into a Probopass

Evolving Nosepass into Probopass requires 50 Nosepass candy along with another item: a Magnetic Lure. Magnetic Lures are normally used to attract specific types of Pokemon – Steel, Rock, and Electric-Type – to help players catch ones they may be missing.

When it comes to evolving Nosepass into Probopass, the Magnetic Lure serves a different purpose. In this case, the Magentic Lure must be used to evolve Nosepass from a Rock-Type Pokemon into the combined Steel/Rock-Type Probopass.

There are a couple of ways to acquire Magnetic Lures. The easiest is to simply buy one from the Pokemon Go Shop for 200 PokeCoins. Magnetic Lures can also be acquired by completing Special Research Tasks (although this will take longer than just buying one from the shop).

After combining their Nosepass with a Magnetic Lure and 50 Nosepass candy, players will be rewarded with a Probopass.

Once you have your Magnetic Lure and 50 Nosepass candy in-hand, you now have everything you need to evolve the Pokemon into a Probopass. The first step to evolving your Nosepass is to travel to a PokeStop, then activate the Magnetic Lure via the Add Lure option.

After the Lure is added, you can evolve your Nosepass into a Probopass while standing within range of the PokeStop. After the process is complete, you will be rewarded with a newly-evolved Probopass to take on your Pokemon Go adventures.

The Hoenn Collection Challenge ends on January 24, so you should make sure to catch a Nosepass before the event concludes to finish the challenge (and to have the Pokemon available to evolve). The next Collection Challenge – taking place in the Johto region – kicks off on January 26.
