Harness the power of the sun and moon with two new Adventure Effects: Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam!

Trainers,

The emergence of Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma in Pokémon GO has led to the discovery of two new Adventure Effects!

Adventure Effects are powerful Pokémon attacks that can be activated outside of battle to grant temporary bonus effects to help you on your Pokémon GO adventure. Adventure Effects have now been reported to occur when Dusk Mane Necrozma uses Sunsteel Strike and when Dawn Wings Necrozma uses Moongeist Beam.

With these latest developments, who knows what Adventure Effects may be discovered in the future…

Adventure Effect: Sunsteel Strike

Necrozma fused with Solgaleo into Dusk Mane Necrozma will know the Charged Attack Sunsteel Strike.*

Trainers can now activate Sunsteel Strike’s Adventure Effect by using 3,000 Stardust and 3 Necrozma Candy, which harnesses the power of sunlight for 10 minutes. During this time, Pokémon that typically appear during daytime will be attracted to your location, similar to the effect of Incense. Pokémon that can only evolve during daytime will be able to evolve at any time while this Adventure Effect is active.

Some of the Pokémon that you may encounter include the following.

  • Pidgey
  • Alolan Exeggutor
  • Solrock
  • Cottonee
  • Helioptile
  • Tyrunt
  • Yungoos
  • Rockruff
  • Fomantis

You may even encounter Rockruff that can evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc—if you’re lucky!

You can extend the timer for Sunsteel Strike’s Adventure Effect in increments of 10 minutes by using more Stardust and Necrozma Candy. The timer can be extended up to two hours each time you tap Use, and you can tap Use again to add additional time—up to 24 hours total!

Sunsteel Strike cannot be active at the same time as another Adventure Effect, an Incense, a Daily Adventure Incense, the Mystery Box, or the Coin Bag.

*Presently, Dusk Mane Necrozma is unable to learn Sunsteel Strike via Charged TM or Elite Charged TM.

Adventure Effect: Moongeist Beam

Necrozma fused with Lunala into Dawn Wings Necrozma will know the Charged Attack Moongeist Beam.*

Trainers can activate the Moongeist Beam’s Adventure Effect by using 3,000 Stardust and 3 Necrozma Candy, which harnesses the power of moonlight for 10 minutes. During this time, Pokémon that typically appear during nighttime will be attracted to your location, similar to the effect of Incense. Pokémon that can only evolve during nighttime will be able to evolve at any time while this Adventure Effect is active.

Some of the Pokémon that you may encounter include:

  • Alolan Rattata
  • Clefairy
  • Alolan Marowak
  • Hoothoot
  • Galarian Zigzagoon
  • Lunatone
  • Munna
  • Amaura
  • Rockruff

You may even encounter Rockruff that can evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc—if you’re lucky!

You can extend the timer for Moongeist Beam’s Adventure Effect in increments of 10 minutes by using more Stardust and Necrozma Candy. The timer can be extended up to two hours each time you tap Use, and you can tap Use again to add additional time—up to 24 hours total!

Moongeist Beam cannot be active at the same time as another Adventure Effect, an Incense, a Daily Adventure Incense, the Mystery Box, or the Coin Bag.

*Presently, Dawn Wings Necrozma is unable to learn Moongeist Beam via Charged TM or Elite Charged TM.
