'Pokémon Go' Meowth Day Event: Start Time, Research Tasks and More

October is shaping up to be a busy month for Pokémon Go and its users. Case in point: The popular mobile game is running two different events at the same time.

While Pokémon Go trainers are currently enjoying the Autumn event that features Shiny Vulpix and the debut of Deerling in the game, another timed event will give players more opportunities to catch the three forms of Meowth.

Whether your favorite Meowth is from the Kanto, Alola or Galar region, all three will be readily available to catch in special research.

IN-GAME BONUSES

Niantic confirmed on its blog that the Pokémon Go in-game shop will sell a special box that includes Incense, Pinap Berries and Lucky Eggs.

The Incense will help trainers playing from home to have Pokémon come to them. Pinap Berries are great to double the amount of candy received when catching Pokémon and Lucky Eggs increase the amount of experience trainers receive for performing various actions for a limited time.
