What can we expect from the event?

Harry Potter Wizards Unite

The events in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will play out fairly similar to Pokémon GO's Community Days, as you might expect. We anticipate that they will, at the very least, happen on different days so fans don't have to juggle phones and apps.

The event will only last a few hours, meaning you'll have to get out of bed early, even on a weekend. There's plenty for you to find out there should you head out of the house, though.

For example, there will be more Confoundables to confront on your map, allowing you to fill your registry much more quickly.

In addition to that, Inns and Greenhouses will be spitting out more spell energy so you can keep playing.

Returning Confoundables will allow you to get double XP for that section of the registry. You will get double XP if you already have a sticker for them in the registry, too.

Not a bad start to Harry Potter's events, though we do hope that they'll introduce more interesting elements as time goes on. Perhaps a raid-like mechanic? Come on Niantic.

And the future?

Honestly, the future of these events is still up in the air, but it appears that they'll be featuring limited-time event-only Confoundables, and making rarer Confoundables appear more often.

That's in addition to the nice XP boost, though we do hope in the future they give us a bit more than just experience and Confoundables.

Maybe a little boost to Premium currency? Please Niantic, my vault is overflowing with crap…
