This is a pinpoint little tip for the Pokémon Go Dragon Week event, which has been running since August 1.
If you don't have the popular Dragon Hydreigon yet, or if you need candy to evolve from a different colored Deinos, keep two pre-evolved Deinos that can be encountered with the Time Challenge Reward, and wait until the ‘Twice the Candy for catching Pokémon’ bonus Spotlight Hour starting at 18:00 on August 4th. Let's do it. Above.
It takes 25 candy to evolve from Deino to Zweilous, and another 100 to Hydreigon.
It's a really small thing, 3 basic at the time of capture, 6 using only the pile, but with the combined bonus of Spotlight Hour, it becomes 12, but if you can get a total of 12 more for two Pokémons, it's the same as walking 60km with Deino as your partner.
Pokémon that appear in the Time Challenge rewards can be kept in ‘Receive Rewards’ by running away from them after you've faced them and checked them out.
‘Transfer a Pokémon to the Professor and double the candy’ on August 11.
If you've already earned rewards and captured a Pokémon, a slightly more generalized tip is to use;
‘Transfer a Pokémon to the Professor and double the candy’ is now set almost every month during Spotlight Hour.
If you have a Pokémon that you want candy for evolutionary breeding, wait until spotlight hour to secure it in your box and transfer it.
The ‘Transfer a Pokémon to the Professor and Double the Candy’ was a valuable bonus that in the past would be held whenever it was next. But now that the mini-event ‘Spotlight Hour’ has become a regular event every Tuesday, we can now expect it to run for an hour almost every month.
In this month's Spotlight Hour, August 11 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. is a massive Sableye outbreak & transferring Pokémon to the Professor to double the candy.
So if you have Pokémon you collected during Dragon Week that you want candy, such as Deino (Hydreigon), Gible (Garchomp), and Rayquaza, even if they have a low rating, you should save them until the 11th and transfer them to the Professor between 6pm and 7pm to save candy at double the rate.
(And don't forget to swap with a friend if possible and expect to get an exchange bonus candy based on distance and a swing of individual values.)
There are also limited tasks with Rare Candy rewards
You can use the Rare Candy, but it's more efficient to conserve a versatile finite resource as much as possible and spend it when you have no other choice.
One of the tips for Dragon Week is the ‘Capture 3 dragon types’ task, which drops in field research and rewards you with 1 Rare Candy.
Other Pokémon that appear as rewards for the Dragon Week-only Field Research Tasks are Bagon and Dratini, and since there are no Deino's confirmed, you can earn candy by throwing away all but the most necessary tasks during the week, leaving only Capturing 3 Dragons.
The drop from the 7km egg is difficult, and the different colors are a godsend
Deino has increased its wild appearance for a limited time and should also hatch from 7km eggs. But even so, they are rare, so there are few reports, and it' s hard to know if you can get one even if you spend a lot of paid Incubator to get one (of course, the odds are better than not).
To increase the number of raffles at least once, while reducing the consumption of Incubator;
Get as many 7km eggs as possible during Dragon Week.
This is because the contents of the egg is determined when you get it, and even if it hatches later, it will still be a Pokémon based on what the event was like at the time you got it. If you're lucky enough to hatch from an Egg, you'll also get candies all together.
The different colors of the first appearance are not known to have increased odds, as there are few reports of Deino itself appearing despite the event.
If you still want to go for it, there are only a few things you can do during Dragon Week: cast a net with Monster Ball Plus and so on, watch the radar, and if you see one, go straight to it, and consciously get 7km eggs (be careful not to fill up the slot with eggs from Pokestops).
Dragon Week runs through Friday, August 7, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7).
