Tynamo and Mega Manectric will be appearing for the first time, along with a lot of other big bonuses and activities. Here’s all the details about the Pokémon GO Charge Up! event.

When is the Charge Up! Event in Pokémon GO

The Charge Up! event will begin in Pokémon GO on Tuesday, March 16th at 10am in your local time zone.
