Pokemon GO - Test Your Mettle event

Happy Monday from us to you with a special batch of events and activities available in Pokemon GO until Wednesday, September 21, 2022. Test your Mettle event is now live.

Mondays can be frustrating: a fresh work week ahead and no way of knowing what opportunities await around the corner. Life is full of nifty little curveballs bent on wrecking your day if you allow them to. This is true for most things, but you can always count on Pokemon GO to be there with exactly what you need: some events, bonuses and general good times. 

Here's exactly what awaits you in Pokemon go from September 19, until September 23, 2022.

Fresh off the September Community day, you'll be able to dive right back into the Test your Mettle event.  Celesteela, the Launch Pokemon, made its glorious debut on September 13 but it will be available to face in five-star raids in the Southern Hemisphere all the way until Tuesday, September 27, 2022. 

Coming from the Northern Hemisphere? Never fear. Winter is coming. But before that, you'll be able to go up against  Kartana, the Drawn Sword Pokemon, until Tuesday, September 27, 2022.
