Pokemon Go has a handful of events lined up for September 2020, starting with Mega September–a three-week event revolving around Mega Evolutions. Each week will have a different focus, and if players can hit certain milestones, Niantic will introduce additional Mega-Evolved Pokemon in the game.
Although Mega-Evolved Pokemon are the primary focus of Mega September, there will be plenty of other rewards available during the event, including new Shiny Pokemon to catch. You can see a full breakdown of the Mega September event below.
Week 1: Mega Raids
- September 1 (8 AM local) – September 7 (10 PM local)
The first leg of the Mega September event revolves around Mega Raids, a new tier of Raid Battles that pits players against a Mega-Evolved Pokemon. Throughout the week, Mega Raids will occur at Gyms more frequently than usual, and you’ll get an increased attack bonus if you raid alongside friends. If players around the world can clear two million Mega Raids before the week ends, Niantic will introduce Mega Pidgeot as a Mega Raid boss.
Ubisoft’s sci-fi take on the battle royale genre, Hyper Scape, hasn’t exactly set the world aflame so far, but this week’s new patch will make some much-requested changes to the game. As a patch preview video posted by Ubisoft Montreal reveals, the update will nerf several weapons, adjust controller aiming, and add some new features.
We are excited to give a sneak peek at Patch 1.1 coming next week!
🎮 Controller aim update
🔫 Hexfire + Mammoth nerfs
👑 Crown adjustments

First, the update will reduce the clipsize of the Hexfire minigun and the overall damage of the Mammoth shotgun, since both of these weapons are widely-considered overpowered by the community at the moment. Second, the patch takes aim at the game’s controller support, giving players more options on how to adjust the acceleration and sensitivity of their sticks, as well as reducing the default sensitivity.
The patch also overhauls the game’s Crown Rush gamemode, making it harder to use movement options to escape your pursuers when you have the Crown. Ubisoft is adding some basic features to the game as well with this update, such as a player stats and a report button.
