Pokemon Type Events - Which Ones are Missing?


#1

I really like those Pokemon Type Events. Currently having a blast getting lots of Ralts.

Which Types are still missing from Niantic’s target?
If I remember correctly, we’ve had Water, Ice, Psychic, Electric, Fighting…maybe Dragon?


#2

Not dragon.


#3

We have had fire.


#4

Also, grass, 2017.


#5

Not Dragon? No idea where I came up with it then…
I also don’t remember how was my fire event!

I wish Ground gets saved until we have Gible.


#6

Haha, so glad you arent quitting, gen IV is here.

Ground event would be awesome, Larv and Gible frenzy!


#7

Need Dragon event so I can get last gold medal.


#8

I can remember we have had Fire, Ice, Grass, Ghost, Rock, Water, Psychic, Fighting… Not sure about Electric.

I really hope on a normal event with new shinies - One should be the Pidgey family.


#9

Ground/rock theme was for adventure event or something iirc


#10

Same


#11

Let’s try something else.
Here are all known Pokémon types (at least I hope so) and the events that (I think) they were featured in. Feel free to add more when I forgot something. I explicitly leave out community days here.

  • Bug - no event
  • Dark - might be included in “spooky Pokémon” for Halloween, but they don’t have their own event
  • Dragon - no event, and I don’t think there will ever be one, there are not many dragon Pokémon and they are too valueable
  • Electric - no event
  • Fairy - no even
  • Fighting - Battle Showdown 2018
  • Fire - Solstice event 2017 (“Fire and Ice”)
  • Flying - no event
  • Ghost - Halloween events, but in general they keep talking about “spooky Pokémon” there
  • Grass - Worldwide Bloom (May 2017)
  • Ground - no event (Ground was not explicitly included in Adventure week, but since many rock types are also ground types, it seemed as if)
  • Ice - Solstice event 2017 (“Fire and Ice”)
  • Normal - no event
  • Psychic - Psychic spectacular 2018
  • Poison - no explicit event, but some have been included in Halloween events (e.g. Zubat)
  • Rock - Adventure Weeks
  • Steel - no event
  • Water - Water festivals

we need a smeargle event


#13

or any 12 candy stage one evo family


#14

Dragon i think


#15

So dratini CD didn’t count as a dragon-type event? Even if it was, I’d love another one of those.

Does @Pokemon’s ‘larv’ mean larvitar? I could really stand to have another larvitar CD, since I have a new trainer now who could really use a tyranitar or two.

I just hope whatever events we have aren’t limited to mid-Sunday, when for me work is obligatory not optional.


#16

Yes, I mean larvitar.


#17

The real mvp.


#18

I was thinking about counting CDs as events.
If we do we’d have had the Daratini CD as dragon event and Pikachu and Mareep as electric events.


#19

That was my thought, too. And the 2 weeks or so sometime in '16 or '17 with elevated spawn rates for fighting types (especially machop) has to have qualified as a machop event. It almost seemed like a Community Fortnight.

Wouldn’t mind another of those, either, though.


#20

I don’t think you should count Community Days as Type Events, as just one Pokémon is boosted. Not a whole type.
