Another Pokemon Go event will be held next week and it’s all about giving.

Pokemon Go Trainers can show friends how much they care by handing out gifts starting next week.

The Gift Event week ups the number of Gifts you can give to 30, and the number you can carry to 20.

All Eggs received from Gifts during the event will require only 2 km to hatch. And while they may look like 2 km Eggs, the Pokemon that hatch will be those which normally appear in 7 km eggs.

This is regardless of whether you incubate or hatch them during or after the event.

Even better? You also have a chance at hatching a Shiny Bonsly.

Here’s when the Pokemon Go Gift Event starts and ends:

  • Starts: Monday, August 5 at 1pm local time
  • Ends: Monday, August 19 at 1pm local time
