Get ready Trainers, an Incense Day event is on the way in a few days, on March 14th! The festivities will feature the likes of Beldum who will be attracted to those who use Incense. Evolving the Steel- and Psychic-type ‘mon into Metang, and then to Metagross, will score you the Meteor Mash attack. And if you’re lucky, you might even stumble across a Shiny Beldum!

Another fun incentive for the occasion is the event-exclusive 1 PokéCoin bundle in the shop that offers an Incense — so make sure to take advantage of the deal while you’re playing.

You’ll also have the opportunity to come across other, different Pokémon when you’re using Incense! Natu, Baltoy, Munna, Alolan Diglett, Bronzor, and Shieldon are among some of the ones that might pop up. The Pokémon GO site has shared more specific times you can see type-specific monsters:


  • From 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon
  • From 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon
  • From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time: Psychic-type Pokémon
  • From 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time: Steel-type Pokémon


You can participate in Incense Day on Sunday, March 14th, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (local time). Have fun and be safe out there, Trainers!
