POKEMON GO INCENSE DAY START TIME

The next Pokémon Go Incense Day begins Sunday, March 14, from 11 a.m. and ends 5 p.m. local time.

POKEMON GO INCENSE DAY SCHEDULE

Like previous Incense Days, each hour of the event will feature different Pokémon. The official Pokémon Go blog has broken down which types of Pokémon will appear during each hour.

Here's the skinny as to which type of Pokémon you can expect to encounter at different times throughout the event:

  • From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon
  • From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon
  • From 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon

If you're wondering which Pokémon will appear, the official blog confirmed that for the Psychic-type hours, Natu, Girafarig, Meditite, Baltoy and Munna will appear. Munna will be a rare encounter, so you'll need to be patient if you're looking to catch this Psychic-type Pokémon.

As for the Steel-type hours, Alolan Diglett, Magnemite, Aron and Bronzor will appear. Shieldon will also appear as the rare encounter for these hours.

SHINY BELDUM AND METEOR MASH

Beldum, being a Steel and Psychic-type Pokémon, will appear during every hour of the event. This event will also see an increased chance to find a Shiny Beldum, which changes the Pokémon from its usual blue color to silver.

Evolving Meltan, the evolved form of Beldum, into Metagross during the event will give the Pseudo-legendary Pokémon the exclusive move of Meteor Mash. It's a powerful Steel-type charged attack that will make Metagross one of the best Steel types in the whole game.
