Hot Feet: Event Recap

The Scorching Steps Event in Pokémon GO has kicked off with a few new features, including the addition of shiny Larvesta and various event-specific Pokémon hatching from eggs of different distances. Despite the lack of featured event spawns and an increased chance of hatching Larvesta or its shiny variant, there are still some notable aspects of the event that are worth exploring.

The event, starting on Friday at 10:00 AM local time and ending on Tuesday at 08:00 PM, offers some bonuses that players can take advantage of. These bonuses include 2x Candy from hatching eggs, reduced egg hatch distance when using incubators during the event, and increased chances to encounter and hatch shiny Slugma, shiny Litleo, and the debut of shiny Larvesta.

One of the highlights of the event is the return of Yveltal in 5-star raids, offering players a chance to battle and potentially catch this legendary Pokémon. While Yveltal may not have its signature move, Oblivion Wing, its performance in PvP has been analyzed, showing that Focus Blast could be a stronger choice in battles. Additionally, Yveltal's role as a raid attacker is emphasized, making it a valuable addition to your team.

Another Pokémon to look out for during the event is Volcarona, which can be hatched from eggs. While Volcarona may not be the most impactful in PvP or PvE battles currently, its potential future movesets could make it more relevant.

Litleo and Pyroar, two fire-type Pokémon available through hatching during the event, have mixed performances in both the Great League and Ultra League. While Litleo shows promise in certain matchups, Pyroar may struggle to make an impact in the current meta.

Chandelure, another Pokémon available through hatching, is highlighted for its potential in PvP battles, where it can deal significant damage with its ghost-type moves. In PvE, Chandelure ranks as the top electric-type attacker, making it a valuable addition to raids.

The event also features other Pokémon such as Turtonator, Litwick, and Raikou, each with their own strengths and weaknesses in battles. Overall, the Scorching Steps Event is rated 3/10, with some aspects of the event falling short of expectations. Despite this, players can still find value in participating in raids, hatching eggs, and collecting candies during the event.

In conclusion, while the Scorching Steps Event may lack some of the excitement of previous events, there are still opportunities to engage with new Pokémon, participate in raids, and enhance your battle strategies. So grab your Poké Balls and get ready to explore the scorching steps of this event in Pokémon GO!
