Trainers, the Equinox event has just been announced! Pokémon GO Equinox event 2019 takes place from March 19th – 26th and features increased spawns or Grass type Pokemon, Lunatone and Sun rock switching places and two new moves: Acid Spray and Leaf Tornado. We don't know which (if any) will be available

The Equinox event comes right after the upcoming weekend featuring Rayquaza raids and just in time to celebrate the March's equinox phenomena (yes, March's, there are two in a year!). For those who don't know, the moment at which the center of the visible Sun is directly is above the Equator. It happens twice a year, on March 20th and on September 23rd and Pokémon GO celebrates it accordingly!
Both new moves seem to be part of the 18 moves that were silently slipped into the game five months ago, confirming our theory that Niantic is not happy with the variety in Pokémon GO.
Acid Spray Poison :
The following Pokemon will permanently get access to Leaf Tornado Grass :
It remains to be seen how much each Pokémon will benefit from the new moves. Stay tuned for our moves analysis and be on the lookout for potential new shinies! It's kind of strange that there aren't any XP, candy or Stardust bonuses, which makes us think that Niantic could have something different in store.
