As we say Alola to Alola in Pokemon GO, we have begun preparing for the next event, the Season Of GOMany new and exciting events are going to be taking place during this time, and it looks like another Pokemon will be the star of some Research Breakthrough encounters. Klink, the Steel-type Pokemon will be a big part of what is happening in the upcoming month!

But, when can we start getting our hands on one, and does Klink have a chance to be shiny? Let’s go through all of the details of what you can expect to find during the upcoming Season of GO!

June Research Breakthrough Start and End Date

If you’re looking to reap the rewards from Professor Willow’s special Research Breakthroughs, you’ll be able to start on June 1st at 3:00 pm central time, and you’ll be able to help out until July 1st at 3:00 pm central time. You’ll need to help him with a few different tasks, and if you’re lucky, you’ll earn an encounter with this special Steel Pokemon!

Can Klink Be Shiny In Pokemon Go?

If you’re looking to add another shiny Pokemon to your Pokedex, you’re in luck. Klink does have a chance to be shiny, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re helping out with as many research tasks as possible during this event to get your hands on one of these elusive Pokemon! You’ll know when you’ve come across a shiny Klink when you see the color difference, as well as the visual cues that signal a shiny has been found.

Klink Stats in Pokemon GO

If you’re looking to get your hands on a capable Steel-type Pokemon, you could do a lot worse than Klank and their evolutionary line. If you get your hands on one of these Pokemon, you’ll find a laundry list of Strengths, with only a few weaknesses to hold them back.

  • Max CP: 956
  • Max HP: 106
  • Attack: 98
  • Defense: 121
  • Stamina: 120

You’ll have your hands on a pretty capable Pokemon that can withstand some extra punishment, but with their Strengths list, it makes the punishment much less severe.

Strong Against – 63% Damage Taken

  • Normal
  • Flying
  • Rock
  • Bug
  • Steel
  • Grass
  • Psychic
  • ice
  • Dragon
  • Fairy
  • Poison – 39% Damage Taken

Weak Against – 160% Damage Taken

  • Fighting
  • Ground
  • Fire

If you’re looking to advance them through the evolutionary line, you’ll be able to evolve Klink into Klang for 25 Candies, and Klang into Klinklang for 100 Candies. You’ll find that these Pokemon are all extremely valuable to have in their own rights, so getting your hands on one, plus the chance of it being shiny, is worth your time and effort in the long run.

If you need to get your hands on more items, even without having your phone out or need to make some extra space inside of your bags for more Pokemon, we’ve got you covered. Don’t forget to prepare yourself for Pokemon GO Fest, and find out what you need to finish off during the Season of Alola before that comes to a close!
