What is Incense Day: Type Shuffle?

Niantic has devised a new type of event that they’re calling ‘Incense Day’. During the event period, April 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, incense will attract a specific type of Pokémon during between specific times.

Water-, Fire-, Grass-, Psychic-, Bug-, and Ground-type Pokémon will be featured during the day, for one hour each. This includes some rare Pokémon and also those with the chance to be shiny.
