Pokemon Go's Nidoran Day is Today

Pokemon Go is holding a special Limited Research event with tons of Nidoran as a reward. From 8 AM to 10 PM local time, Pokemon Go players can participate in a Limited Research event featuring both versions of Nidoran as a reward. The event is similar to past Limited Research events in which players complete rather basic Research quests, with a Nidoran encounter guaranteed as a reward. Each set of 3 Field Research quests rewards 750 XP and some cobination of Poke Balls and Berries. Completing the entire quest will get you 3,000 XP plus 30 Nidoran (Male) candies and 30 Nidoran (Female) candies.

Here's a rundown of what you need to know about the event:

Nidoran Day Event Time

The event runs from 8 AM to 10 PM local time today (November 28th) only.

Nidoran (Male) and Nidoran (Female) Shiny Forms

Both Nidoran (Male) and Nidoran (Female) have Shiny forms available in Pokemon Go. The two versions basically do a palette swap in their Shiny forms - Nidoran (Male) has blue skin, while Nidoran (Female) has pink skin. Keep in mind that it is unclear whether Shiny rates are boosted during the event.

Nidoking and Nidoqueen PVP Viability

While neither Nidoking and Nidoqueen are headliners in PvP, Nidoqueen does have a bit of usefulness as a "sweeper" in the Great League. Nidoqueen has a good move pool and can serve as a solid anchor for finishing off an opponent's Pokemon after they've run out of shields. Nidoking, sadly, doesn't have any viability in any PvP format, a result of his more limited moveset and poor typing.
