Originally available only to beta testers in Australia and New Zealand, Wizards Unite's first Brilliant Event: Fantastic Flora and Fauna has returned for players to enjoy across the globe!

Harry Potter Wizards Unite: Fantastic Flora and Fauna event

At the end of May, a special event was held for beta testers of Harry Potter Wizards Unite.

Fans have been waiting for the event to return for the worldwide player base, and now Niantic have brought it to the masses!

The event began yesterday, July 3, at 6:00 p.m. local time. It runs until the same time on July 10.

In terms of plot, Hagrid asks you to help him find Brilliant versions of Foundables. Players will also be able to find special 7 km Portkey Portmanteaus.

During the event, the spawn rate of Foundables will increase and, as expected, it will be possible to find them in Brilliant form.
