Pokémon GO has launched a new type of event called Hatch Days, featuring the Emanation Pokémon, Riolu. During this event, everything revolves around hatching eggs, and 2 km Eggs have a high chance of hatching the Featured Pokémon in question, which for this specific event, will be Riolu. Trainers also have an increased chance of hatching a Shiny version of the featured Pokémon, which will come in handy for those who enjoy a rarer collection of Pokémon.
The first Pokémon GO Hatch Day features Riolu, and players need to hatch as many Riolu as possible in the three hours that the event lasts. The event begins on Saturday, July 22, 2023 at 2:00 PM and runs until 5:00 PM local time. Players can also obtain event-themed Field Research tasks by spinning Photo Discs at PokeStops. That said, this guide discusses everything about the new event.Pokemon GO Riolu Hatch Day: Field Research Tasks and Rewards
