Fabulous handkerchief wave to the Fashion Week event, and a look forward to the future. Here's what awaits the Trainers in Pokemon GO this stellar weekend.

Having strutted all of our stuff during Pokemon GO's recent Fashion Week event, it is now time to go out there again, and this time around, enjoy the warm-up for the Festival of Lights in the Evolving Stars event. Here's how to spend this weekend in Pokemon GO.

Evolving Stars event

Date and time

Gaze upon the starry skies of Pokemon GO until Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

The Season of Light story shines on

A whole new part of Cosmog’s story in the Season of Light has become available during the Evolving Stars event. Adding yet another piece to the otherworldly Pokemon's puzzle means taking another step on your journey to the stars. 

Cosmoem has taken this opportunity to make its Pokemon GO debut and the Trainers can now evolve their Cosmog into Cosmoem by using 25 Cosmog Candy. You can do this without fear of losing your only Cosmog as you'll soon have the opportunity to encounter additional Cosmog for your collection.
