A rite of Summer in Lumios includes the yearly swarm of salamanders where their numbers swell and they can be seen almost anywhere. Born with a magical fire that keeps their tails alight, this yearly explosion in their population can lead to burned acres of fields or homes as the salamanders find places to hide.
Turning a negative into a positive, the Federation hosts a yearly festival, the Salamander Solstice, to encourage the people to hunt the salamanders with fabulous seasonal rewards and festive fireworks.
Keep an eye out across Lumios, as the salamanders can and will swarm all over when you’re not looking!
Ready to hunt some salamanders?
The Salamander Solstice runs from July 15, 2020 11 a.m. PDT until August 12, 2020 11 a.m. PDT.
As Salamanders are defeated, they will drop Salamander Coins. Redeem these Coins for special summer rewards from the Salamander Solstice Merchant in all cities for rewards including refreshing Coconut Cure-all Popsicle or Rawberry Rampage Popsicle, a Celebratory Salamander or the Solstice Chest!
The Solstice Chest is filled with lots of potential goodies including:
- Popsicles, special summer food items with powerful buffs
- Salamander Weapon Skins
- Celebratory Salamander (he shoots off fireworks!)
- Beach Trip Swimsuit Costume
- Beach Trip Headpiece Costume
The Salamanders may also drop Nest Map Fragments! Collect enough and deliver them to the Salamander Solstice Cartographer to unlock the location of a Salamander Nest that is sure to be full of riches and rewards.
During the solstice, the Federation stands up a Salamander Totem to aid in the hunters. The Salamander Totem can be used to receive random buffs to aid in your hunting!
The Salamander Solstice doesn’t last forever, so join the hunt and the celebration!
