Pokemon Go is getting its third Incense Day of 2021 with March being dedicated to Hoenn’s Beldum. Players participating can get their hands on a Shiny Metagross that knows Meteor Mash, as well as catch a whole host of popular Psychic and Steel ‘mon. 

To kick off Pokemon Go’s Season of Legends, Niantic is hosting a special celebration that puts a spotlight on Gen III’s Beldum. The day-long festivities will see a boost in Psychic and Steel monsters appearing across the map.

It’s fitting that the March Incense Day is dedicated to the Hoenn character as it infamously evolves into pseudo-Legendary, Metagross. Here’s everything you need to know about the limited-time event, including spawn schedules.

Pokemon Go Beldum Incense Day date & start time

The celebration will go live on March 14 at 11:00 AM local and run until 5:00 PM local time. While Beldum will have a boosted spawn rate with Incense for the entire day, other Steel and Psychic characters will only appear during specific times.

For instance, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM, players will encounter monsters such as Magnemite, Bronzor, and Shieldon. Trainers that are really lucky may even stumble across a rare Shiny version of ‘mon while scouring the map.

Below we will list the event’s spawn schedules. Those looking for a certain Pokemon should make sure to keep track of when the character’s type is active as it changes throughout the Incense Day.

Lucky players can even score a Shiny Metagross during the event.

No doubt March’s Incense Day has more impact than previous ones so far this year, particularly because of Metagross. While not technically a Legendary, the Hoenn region ‘mon is one of the most popular characters in the entire series.

Trainers will not only be able to score a rare Shiny variant of the creature, but it will also know the insanely powerful Community Day move, Meteor Mash, if evolved during the six-hour window. Fans of Gen III will not want to miss out on this one.
