The Mountains of Power event in Pokemon GO is starting today. What do you need to know?

The creators announced a new event that will start today. What attractions will go to the game?

Today, a new event will start in Pokemon GO, which will be the second event this year. The celebration of 2022 ended on January 4, so it’s time for something a little different.

The developers announced that a new Mega Evolution will be added to the game, and it will be Mega Aerodactyl. In addition, the new event will largely focus on interacting with buddies. Part of the tasks is related to them, and thanks to the temporary bonus, winning hearts from a friendly Pokemon will be easier.

What else will be in the game with the arrival of Mountains of Power?
