Pokémon Go ‘Weather Week’ 2024 Castform event guide

Pokémon Go is hosting its yearly “Weather Week” event from March 14-18, promoting Castform and its many different weather-based forms.

During the event, Stardust obtained via catching Pokémon will be doubled. You’ll also get more Stardust for catching weather-boosted Pokémon (with the swirly ring around it when you see it on the overworld). Castform also has an increased chance to be shiny.
