Like most games, Pokémon GO runs various special events and in these events, many of the mechanics and systems alter sightly in order to provide a different themed experience. These range from giving special Pokémon, to extra bonuses and even special Raid Bosses. This section sets out all the major Pokémon GO events unrelated to real life events as well as their bonuses and special features.
