Trainers hoping to get their hands on some amazing new Pokemon from an era long gone should start preparing now for the Primal Rumblings event in Pokemon GO. Not only will gamers have the chance to get their hands on some amazing Mega Evolutions of some of the best legendary Pokemon, but the chance to capture plenty of Shiny Pokemon in the process.

But, which Pokemon are going to be front and center in this epic event, and which Pokemon should players be keeping an eye out for during their adventures into the world? Let’s drop right in and find out what Trainers have to look forward to, as well as how long this event will be running for.

Pokemon GO Primal Rumblings Schedule & Bonuses

Players that are hoping to get out and about into the world to see what this event has to offer them should clear some time out of their schedule from February 22 at 10:00am Local Time until February 24 at 10:00pm Local Time. This gives gamers a fair bit of time to get out into the world and catch some amazing monsters.

While events are normally stacked full of different bonuses, gamers will only have one bonus to look forward to during this event, with an x2 XP Bonus for Evolving Pokemon. However, for those hoping to boost their Trainer Level to the next level, this could be the perfect bonus for you!
