Pokemon Go has launched a new event called A Paldean Adventure, which introduces the first-ever Generation 9 Pokemon to the game. The event, which runs from September 5 to September 10, 2023, has been praised by fans as one of the best events in ages, thanks to the Ultra Unlock bonuses, Golden Pokestops, new Pokemon, and more. Here are some of the reasons why Pokemon Go fans are enjoying the A Paldean Adventure event.
Ultra Unlock Bonuses: A Boost for Trainers
One of the main attractions of the A Paldean Adventure event is the Ultra Unlock bonuses, which offer generous rewards for completing various tasks and challenges. Some of the bonuses include:
- 4x Catch XP and Stardust
- 2x Hatch Candy and Stardust
- 1/2 Egg Hatch Distance
- Increased chance of Lucky Trades and Lucky Friends
- Guaranteed XL Candy from Legendary Raids
These bonuses are especially helpful for trainers who want to level up faster, earn more resources, and power up their Pokemon. Many fans have shared their progress on social media, showing how they have reached Level 50 or higher thanks to the Ultra Unlock bonuses.
Golden Pokestops: A Treasure Hunt for Items
Another feature that has delighted fans is the Golden Pokestops, which are special Pokestops that appear randomly on the map and give out extra items when spun. These items include:
- Poke Balls
- Evolution Items
- Rare Candy
Golden Pokestops are easy to spot, as they have a golden glow and a star-shaped icon on them. They also make a distinct sound when spun. Fans have reported finding Golden Pokestops in various locations, such as parks, malls, monuments, and even their own homes. Some fans have even created maps and guides to help others find Golden Pokestops in their areas.
New Pokemon: A Chance to Catch Gen 9 Starters
The most exciting part of the A Paldean Adventure event is the introduction of the first-ever Generation 9 Pokemon to Pokemon Go. These are:
- Fuecoco: A Fire-type Pokemon that resembles a coconut with a fiery tail.
- Sprigatito: A Grass-type Pokemon that resembles a sprig of wheat with a cat-like face.
- Quaxly: A Water-type Pokemon that resembles a duckling with a quill on its head.
These three Pokemon are the starters of the Paldean region, which is a new region created by fans as part of a project called Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The project aims to create a fan-made Pokemon game that features a new region, new story, new characters, and new Pokemon.
Pokemon Go players can encounter these three Pokemon in the wild, in raids, in eggs, and in Field Research tasks during the event. They can also choose one of them as their partner in a special research quest called “A Paldean Adventure”, which has branching paths and different outcomes depending on their choice. The quest also rewards players with other Gen 9 Pokemon, such as Lechonk, Puffluff, and Zebrite.
Fans have expressed their admiration for these new Pokemon, saying that they are cute, creative, and well-designed. They have also shared their screenshots and videos of catching them, evolving them, and battling with them.
More to Come: A Preview of Paldea
The A Paldean Adventure event is not only a fun and rewarding event for Pokemon Go fans, but also a preview of what’s to come in the future. According to Niantic, the event is part of a larger story that will unfold throughout the Adventures Abound season, which lasts until December 1, 2023.
The season will feature more Gen 9 Pokemon from the Paldean region, as well as more events, quests, features, and surprises. Niantic has hinted that there is a mystery behind the appearance of Paldean Pokemon in Pokemon Go, and that players will have to work together to solve it.

Some fans have even speculated that Niantic might collaborate with the creators of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet to bring more fan-made content to Pokemon Go.
