Niantic is holding another Incense Day event in Pokemon Go this Sunday, March 14. The event will run from 11 AM to 5 PM local time and gives players more chances to catch Beldum and certain other Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon.
Beldum in particular will be plentiful during the event. The Pokemon will appear more frequently when you use an Incense, and you’ll have an increased chance of encountering a Shiny Beldum. On top of that, if you can evolve Metang (Beldum’s evolved form) into Metagross during the event, it will automatically know Meteor Mash, a move it could previously only learn during the Beldum Community Day.
Trainers, an Incense Day featuring Psychic- and Steel-type Pokémon will be happening in a few days! During this event, Pokémon like Beldum will be attracted to Incense, and you might even encounter a Shiny Beldum, if you’re lucky! https://t.co/bbArg35ZHz pic.twitter.com/HRxbfgRXru

The Legendary Pokemon Tornadus is also back in five-star Raids until March 11.
