Sustainability Week, the next Pokemon Go event, is upon us. Here is everything you need to know before it starts.

Sustainability Week in Pokemon Go is all about Bounsweet. This fruit Pokemon will be making its Pokemon Go debut.

Bounsweet is a Grass type Pokemon from the Alola region. It evolves into Steenee, which evolves into Tsareena, and both evolutions will be available in the game.

To evolve your Bounsweet, you’ll need 25 Bounsweet Candy. To evolve Steenee into Tsareena, it will take 100 Bounsweet Candy. At this time, the shiny version of these Pokemon are not available in the game yet.

The Sustainability Week in Pokemon Go runs from April 20 at 10 am local time, through April 26 at 8 pm local time.
