  • Global Event Bonuses:
    • Lure Modules will be active for three hours.
    • Taking GO Snapshots will lead to photobombs. Niantic doesn't list the Pokémon that will appear but does indicate that it can be Shiny. I tend to think perhaps it will be Smeargle with its Shiny form turned back on, as it is a painting Pokémon, which certainly goes with the color theme.

There will also be an event within the event for Pokémon GO players in India. From Friday, March 18th, 2022 at 10 AM until Sunday, March 20th, 2022 at 10 AM, the following will be available for Trainers in India:

India Regional Challenge: Trainers in India will be able to work together in a Regional Challenge. Once they catch over 2M Pokémon, all Trainers in India will enjoy a 2x Catch Candy bonus for the remainder of the event.

India Regional Event Box: Trainers in India will be able to purchase a celebratory box containing a Lucky Egg, a Lure Module, a Rainy Lure Module and a Mossy Lure Module for 125 PokéCoins.
