Niantic slammed for wild spawns in Pokemon Go’s Lunar New Year: Dragons Unleashed event

Scott Baird

Pokemon Go players are annoyed with the spawn rate during the Lunar New Year: Dragons Unleashed event due to a severe lack of Dragon-type Pokemon.

There was a time when Dragon-type Pokemon were among the rarest in the series, which made their appearance all the more impressive, especially as they were so powerful and had few weaknesses to other types.

As time passed, Dragon-type Pokemon became more plentiful, and they gained more weaknesses & counters, so they’re not quite as threatening as they once were, even if some Dragon-types dominated the competitive scene for a long time.

Dragon-type Pokemon are especially common in Pokemon Go, with the promise of lots of them in February as part of the Lunar New Year: Dragons Unleashed. Unfortunately, the promise of dragons hasn’t quite been fulfilled.

Pokemon Go players want more dragons in dragon event

A user on the Pokemon Go Reddit shared an image showing their screen and its distinct lack of dragons during the Lunar New Year event, even though Dratini, Skrelp, Noibat, and Jangmo-o are all meant to appear.

They weren’t the only player with bad luck, as another Pokemon Go Reddit user shared an unlucky photo of their screen, filled with Magikarp, Shuckle, and a couple of other random Pokemon during the Dragon-type event.

A user on The Silph Road Reddit also shared their lack of encounters with Dragon-type Pokemon during the event, save for the promised Drampa that will appear in Raids.

It bears mentioning that some of the Pokemon for this event were chosen for their colors, as red and yellow are prominent colors during the 2024 Lunar New Year. This is why Pokemon like Fennekin, Magikarp, and Shuckle are part of the event despite having no connections to dragons.

It’s not as if Dragon-type Pokemon are uncommon in Pokemon Go, considering how many have been added over the years. It’s just that they’ve been kept rare, even in events where they’re supposed to be common.

The problem is that they’re a little bit too rare, and players are sick of staring out into a sea of flopping Magikarp, all hoping to catch a single Dragon-type Pokemon during the Year of the Dragon.
