Pokémon GO’s next big event launches today, and it’s really going to put your muscle to the test. The big Battle Showdown features Fighting-type Pokémon, and you’ll be seeing them in the wild a lot more often through May 14.
It’s a great chance to add powerful Fighting-types like Makuhita or Machamp to your collection, but there are additional perks to be had as well. You’ll get double experience from Gym and Raid battles for the duration of the event, and Raid Battles will also reward you with 3,000 Stardust just for participating. If you win, you’re guaranteed at least one Rare Candy.
If you’ve been putting off hitting the gym, now might just be the perfect time to get back into the habit. Simply spinning the Photo Disc at nearby gyms will net extra items, and the more often you visit a gym, the better rewards you’ll get each time you stop by.
