tricky pokemon go event
It’s tricky to trick a trickster!

The Tricky Pokémon event is back for one day only. Mischievous Pokémon are going to be spawning everywhere and some of them may even be the trickiest Pokémon of all….Ditto, in disguise. Team GO Rocket is back at it again with a plan that is most likely to backfire. Giovanni has captured Zapdos and it is up to you to track him down. Read on to find out what you need to know to make the most of this one day event.

Event Details

Date and Time

Thursday, April 1, 2021, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time


  • Mischievous Pokémon, like Aipom, Croagunk, and Purrloin will be appearing more often in the wild!
  • Team GO Rocket Grunts will only have Shadow Aipom on their teams during the event.
  • Team GO Rocket will be appearing more often at PokéStops and in balloons.
  • The Team GO Rocket Timed Research launching during this event will be available from Thursday, April 1, 2021, at 12:00 a.m. to Thursday, April 8, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. local time. Complete it within that time to earn a Super Rocket Radar and other rewards!
  • The switch timer in the GO Battle League will be cut in half! Could this be more Pokémon mischief at work?
  • Take a few snapshots for a surprise!
  • Ditto will be disguised more frequently in the wild during the event. We’ve also received reports of Ditto transforming into one more Pokémon species than before, and it seems this phenomenon will continue after the event concludes.
