There's a rather wintry chill in the air and multiple Foundables are now all frozen. Bundle up and head out around your neighborhood in order to help shatter ice Confoundables and restore some meteorological balance. Running from January 7 at 2:00 p.m. EST to January 14 at 2:00 p.m. EST, join in the frozen fun by encountering:

  • Increased sightings of Foundables trapped in ice Confoundables, including Hippogriffs and the Nimbus 2000.
  • Increased Wizard XP when returning Foundables trapped by ice Confoundables.
  • Tonics for Trace Detection will increase your chances of encountering rare Foundables trapped in ice Confoundables.
  • Baruffio’s Brain Elixir duration will be increased from 30 minutes to a full hour.

Released in June, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an augmented reality game for the mobile platform. The game is based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series and lets players visit real-world locations while casting spells, discovering artifacts, and of course, meeting many of the iconic characters from the series.
