Its powerful evolution, Altaria the Humming Pokémon, has been featured in some of the best and most iconic battles throughout the main saga of Pokémon video games and anime series.

Being the featured Pokémon of this event, all players will have the chance to catch Swablu more frequently in the wild, and even encounter a Shiny one. 

You will also have the opportunity that by evolving it, your Altaria can learn the attack Moonblast. This will be active for up to two hours after the event ends.
