Last year, around the same time, Niantic revealed a unique event in Pokémon Go that focuses on Psychic-type Pokémon – the Psychic Spectacular Event. With the launch of the new Season of Light, this celebration of these Pokémon returns, with plenty of quests to complete and more Pokémon to catch.
Pokémon Go’s Psychic Spectacular event runs from September 6th to 12th. Things kick off with Abra’s Mega Evolution, where Mega Alakazam makes his debut in Mega Raids. During this period, catching one of the three stages of this Pokémon will result in it knowing Charged Attack Psychic, which does 90 damage in battles.
Another Pokémon to watch out for in raids is the Mythical Pokémon Deoxys. In five-star raids, players will be able to find all Pokémon’s variants – Normal, Attack, Defense and Speed Forme. The shiny variant will also be available at a higher price. And to make things easier, trainers will be able to get five raid passes from gyms.
This year’s Psychic Spectacular event looks to encourage participation in battles, as the Go Battle League will feature the Psychic Cup, which of course only allows Psychic Pokémon that must be above 1,500 CP. The exception is that Mew is not allowed. Wilds will feature several event Pokémon such as Drowzee, Natu, Solosis, Gothita, Ralts and Munna.
In addition to that, Trainers will be able to complete Field Research that rewards encounters with Baltoy, Chimecho, Elgyem and Hypno. Timed Research on the other hand will focus on Curveball Throws, giving more encounters with Elgyem. Seven kilometer eggs will contain Smoochum, Wynaut and Chingling.
