Stardust Blast 2019 Event is Here!
The Pokémon Go event Stardust Blast is returning in 2019. From October 3 from 4 p.m. ET until October 10 at 4 p.m. ET, gamers will get more Stardust from almost anything.
Hatching and capturing Pokémon will give you twice as much Stardust. Battles amongst Team Rocket will also provide double Stardust. Each raid will also get a guaranteed 2,000 Stardust.
If you’re going on a stroll to capture some Pokémon and spin some stops, you should pop a Star Piece beforehand. This will result in triple Stardust from the jobs that are doubled, allowing you to easily power up any of your Pokémon.
When your player level rises and you need to level up your Pokémon, the cost of dust rises dramatically – certain Pokémon may cost up to 10,000 dust to power up once, so now is a good time to store up.
Stardust Blast was a seasonal event in Pokémon GO that provided Stardust bonuses to Trainers. It took place in fall 2018 and 2019.
Stardust Blast 2019 is a Pokemon GO special event that includes two Hatch Stardust, two Catch Stardust, two Stardust from Team GO Rocket matches, and a guaranteed 2,000 Stardust from raids. The event will take place between Thursday, October 3, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT 7) and Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT 7).
|Event||Stardust Blast 2019|
|Date + Time||From Thursday, October 3, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) to Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)|
Stardust Blast is a wonderful chance to gather massive quantities of Stardust, since most in-game activities that earn Stardust are enhanced. Almost everything in Pokemon GO, from capturing and raiding to hatching, will give you double Stardust.
The chart below shows how much dust capturing Pokémon rewards you with (no 2x bonus).
|Base Evolution||Second Evolution||Third Evolution|
|No weather boost||100||300||500|
|No weather boost, with a star piece||150||450||750|
|Weather boost, with a star piece||187||562||937|
The quantity of stardust scales with the distance egg you hatch, as seen in the chart below (no 2x bonus).
|Without Star Piece||With Star Piece|
|5km and 7km Egg||800-1600||1200-2400|
|10km Egg||1600-3200||2400- 4800|
Previous Story: Trainers, a new Stardust Blast event was released during a video conference, and the event is set to be online on October 3rd, according to the ‘leaked’ spreadsheet.
Earlier today, a video conference went live, and it seems that someone neglected to delete the spreadsheet of planned activities. The conference was broadcast live on Twitter, and the message was quickly removed as gamers recognized the Stardust Blast wording. Yet, a Reddit user by the name of CaptainTeem000 was quick enough to take a screenshot. Have a peek at the images below.
The leaked spreadsheet indicates that the Stardust Blast event will begin on October 3, unless Niantic chooses to modify it due to the error.
That’s all we’ve got for now; stay tuned for more.
