Pokémon GO Astral Eclipse event brings Solgaleo and Lunala to the world of Pokémon GO. The Astral Eclipse event starts on November 23, 2022, and lasts until November 28, 2022.
Along this event, there’s a separate Ultra Beast Arrival event that asks Trainers to defeat the Ultra Beasts during a global invasion. Could Solgaleo and Lunala be linked to this? Their timely arrival sure looks suspicious.
