The new “Daily Adventure Smoke” in Pokémon GO is causing a lot of discussion among Trainers right now. Some players show their rare finds online.
What is that smoke? The daily adventure smoke was freshly introduced in Pokémon GO and is intended to make for exciting walks. Lighting the Adventure Smoke grants Pokémon spawns for 15 minutes.
In the announcement, Niantic explained that monsters that are otherwise rarely seen in the wild can also appear. And that certainly seems to be the case with some coaches.
Because, for example, on reddit and Twitter, many trainers share what they encountered on their adventure smoke walks.
Galar birds are the highlight, but not the only one
What Pokemon spawn in the adventure smoke? That’s what trainers are just finding out, because the smoke has only been around for a few days and it can only be used once a day.
But it is already evident: The monster pool seems to be very large.
So it can happen that you only encounter “ordinary” monsters on a smoke walk. At the same time, there are also some spawns that you would not otherwise encounter.
The highlights are the Galar birds Arktos, Zapdos and Lavados. All three Galar variants can be found using the smoke if you’re lucky. Some trainers are already showing that they have encountered the monsters:
Cool birds, but: The nasty thing about the legendary Galar birds is that while you can encounter them, a catch is all but guaranteed. On the contrary: It is actually quite improbable. A very low catch rate is combined with a very high escape rate – which can lead to the birds simply saying goodbye after a first, unsuccessful cast and running away.
Then you just have to hope they show up again in the next Adventure Smoke run. But they’re not the only wacky monsters that can appear.
What other spawns are there? One of the most exciting finds was reported by trainer “HaughtyMicky” on the TheSilphRoad subreddit (via reddit). It showed that the adventure smoke apparently caused Tobutz of the Lake Trio to appear – a very rare, regional monster.
Still other trainers showed that the daily adventure smoke also earned them shiny monsters. One user, for example, found Shiny-Sniebel – but the normal, not the new Hisui version:
Even in the overall view, the monsters are apparently displayed directly as Shiny, as another user who was apparently able to secure Shiny Loturzel found:
On the other hand, it was unfortunate for another coach – albeit a bit of his own fault. Apparently he lit the adventure smoke in the spotlight with Meditie.
But it is now clear: The adventure smoke does not seem to come up against the spawns of the limelight hour.
What else spawns? In the subreddit, the players speak of a wide variety of spawns. Some apparently found strong developments such as Rihornior or Gardevoir, while others speak of rare monsters such as Wuffels or Miniras. Such monsters are otherwise only found very, very occasionally in the wild, if at all.
However, rare spawns are not guaranteed. That goes for the Galar Birds, but also pretty much everything else that spawns from the smoke. A real weighting of the spawns has not yet been determined.
In addition, not all trainers have the feature so far. The Daily Adventure Smoke will be rolled out gradually, but should be rolling out to all players over the next week.
At least that’s what Niantic explains in an FAQ, where the most common questions about adventure smoke are answered.
Do you already have the adventure smoke or are you still waiting? And what were your best catches with the new feature? Tell us in the comments!
