With Cosmog seeing their introduction into Pokemon GO at the start of the Season of Light, players have been anxious to get their hands on the secondary evolution for quite some time. With the newest event coming into the game, Evolving Stars looks to push them to their next level, bringing Cosmoem into the spotlight very soon.

But, what kind of happenings can we expect during this new event? Let’s get right into the details, and find out what we are looking forward to when the Evolving Stars event makes its way into Pokemon GO very shortly!
