Bulk Up with Keldeo and Crabrawler in Pokémon GO

Fighting-type Pokémon headline Pokémon GO’s Mythic Blade event, which includes the debuts of Keldeo and Crabrawler.

Get ready to show your fighting spirit during Pokémon GO’s Mythic Blade event! The event will take place through December 11, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time and will give Trainers the opportunity to meet a couple of scrappy Pokémon for the first time.

A seat at the round table opens for the Mythical Pokémon Keldeo in its Ordinary Form as part of the Mythic Blade event—and Trainers can encounter the Colt Pokémon by purchasing a ticket for the Special Research story, Something Extraordinary. Ticket holders must open Pokémon GO between December 10, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. and December 11, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time to receive the Special Research. After it is received, it can be completed at any time.

In addition to an encounter with Keldeo, the Something Extraordinary Special Research features the following rewards.

  • Keldeo T-Shirt avatar item

  • 14 Rare Candies

  • 12 Silver Pinap Berries

  • Two Incubators

  • Two Super Incubators

  • Two Incense

  • Various Fighting-type and Water-type Pokémon encounters

  • And more!

During the Mythic Blade event, two of Keldeo’s fellow Swords of Justice, Terrakion and Virizion, will appear in five-star raids. Terrakion and Virizion caught during this event will be able to learn the Fighting-type Charged Attack Sacred Sword. The Colt Pokémon won’t miss this opportunity to sharpen its blade as well—Keldeo obtained from the Something Extraordinary Special Research will also know Sacred Sword.

Keldeo won’t be the only Pokémon in the spotlight during this event. The Boxing Pokémon, Crabrawler, is stepping into the ring for its Pokémon GO debut. Alongside Crabrawler, a stable of Fighting-type Pokémon including fan favorites Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, and others will appear more often in the wild for the duration of the event. You may even encounter a wild Poliwrath!

Fight on, Trainers!
