This event is coming soon!
The 2022 Psychic Spectacular event is coming soon to Pokemon Go!
The 2022 Psychic Spectacular event will run from September 6, 2022 at 10 a.m. local time until September 12, 2022 at 8 p.m. local time.
Once this event begins, Mega Alakazam and Shiny Elgyem will become available in Pokemon Go.
During this event, Abra, Slowpoke, Drowzee, Natu, Ralts, Spoink, Munna, Woobat, Gothita, Solosis, and Elgyem will appear more frequently than normal in the wild. Kadabra and Kirlia will also have the chance to appear in the wild during this event, though the Pokemon Go website indicated they’ll be rarer than the other featured Pokemon.
If players evolve Kadabra into Alakazam during this event, Alakazam will learn the move “Psychic.”
A variety of Pokemon will appear in Raids during this event. Here’s the breakdown:
- Tier-1 Raids - Unown E, Unown P, Unown S, and Espurr
- Tier-3 Raids - Alolan Raichu, Wobbuffet, Girafarig, and Oranguru
- Tier-5 Raids - Normal Forme Deoxys, Attack Forme Deoxys, Defense Forme Deoxys, and Speed Forme Deoxys
- Mega Raids - Mega Alakazam
Smoochum, Wynaut, and Chingling will have the chance to hatch from 7 km Eggs that are collected during this event.
In addition, players will be able to complete event-themed Field Research tasks during this event to earn encounters with Baltoy, Chimecho, and Elgyem. Players may also earn encounters with Hypno when completing event-themed Field Research tasks during this event, but the Pokemon Go website indicated Hypno will be rarer than Baltoy, Chimecho, and Elgeym.
Elsewhere, players will be able to complete Timed Research tasks during this event to earn multiple encounters with Elgeym. This Timed Research will be focused on curveball throws.
The Psychic Cup will be available in the Go Battle League during this event. Only Psychic-type Pokemon with 1,500 CP or lower will be able to participate in the Psychic Cup, and Mew will not be allowed to participate in the Cup at all.
Finally, a Deoxys Raid Day event will take place on September 11, 2022 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time. During this event, Normal Forme Deoxys, Attack Forme Deoxys, Defense Forme Deoxys, and Speed Forme Deoxys will appear more frequently than normal in Raids, and there will be an increased chance for players to encounter Shiny Deoxys. In addition, the Pokemon Go website said players will be able to collect “up to five additional daily Raid Passes by sinning Gyms” during this event.
