Pokemon GO will be hosting its first-ever Incense Day with Type Shuffle on Sunday when incense will attract several Pokemon of certain types during specific time periods.

Pokemon GO's first-evet Incense Day event will feature Water-, Fire-, Grass-, Psychic-, Bug-, and Ground-type Pokemon. For the occasion, incense will attract several Pokemon of certain types during specific time periods. Regardless of the time though, all Incense will attract Sentret during the event. 

Incense will last for one hour until further notice, so you'll want to make sure to activate one during the event to experience the Type Shuffle.
