“In the Daybreak update, you will begin investigating mysterious mass outbreaks of Pokémon that are popping up all over the Hisui region”, the Pokémon Company writes. “You’ll also have a chance to battle powerful opponents—like Legendary Pokémon and wardens—adding yet more options to your Pokémon battle experience.​”

Massive Mass Outbreaks of Pokémon Reported in the Hisui Region​

A mysterious phenomenon is emerging across Hisui: mass outbreaks of Pokémon in multiple places, accompanied by rainstorms. Head out to investigate with Warden Mai of the Diamond Clan and her partner Munchlax. These special mass outbreaks offer a chance to catch Pokémon that are ordinarily difficult to find!​
