Pokemon GO welcomes Mateo to Routes and lets Trainers encounter Shiny Hisuian Sneasel in the wild
Pokemon GO is welcoming Mateo to the game in its latest Along the Routes event, letting players get to know the new character throughout their monster-collecting adventure. In particular, Mateo's Gift Exchange lets Trainers from across the globe score special rewards at the end of a Route. The researcher lets you exchange mementos from other Trainers once every day.
In the latest event within Pokemon GO, you can look forward to encountering Shiny Hisuian Sneasel as well. You can also form your very own party to complete Routes with your besties. Additionally, you can expect a new Special Research narrative; plus, wild encounters are now more frequent for Slugma, Hitmontop, Spoink, Feebas, Lillipup, Woobat, Emolga, Wooloo, and Pawmi.

Now, if you're a bit of a hatching enthusiast, you'll be delighted to know that Hisuian Growlithe, Togepi, Sneasel, Hisuian Sneasel, Bonsly, and Espurr can hatch from 7 km Eggs. Plus, during the event, you can enjoy bonuses such as 3× XP for spinning PokéStops, 2× Stardust from opening Gifts, and 5× XP for spinning a PokeStop for the first time. You might also encounter Eevee, Hisuian Sneasel, and Wooloo when clearing Field Research tasks.
