The developers from Niantic have brought back Pokemon Go Psychic Spectacular which dropped today, and here is everything you need to know about the event.
During this event, you will be able to catch shiny Elgyem for the first time, and you could also try your luck against Mega Alakazam in raid battles. Elgyem is making its Pokémon Go debut during the Psychic Spectacular event, but how exactly are you meant to catch one?
Niantic has confirmed that Elgyem will be spawning in the wild for the duration of this event. So, if you want to catch an Elgyem, you can simply walk around and search the game’s overworld until you spot one. The same goes for the even rarer shiny Elgyem! You can also encounter the Elgyem with Timed Research focused on Curveball Throws.
The event will see more psychic Pokemon scattered around in the wild Here’s a list of the wild Pokemon that will appear more frequently (they all have a chance of being Shiny, except for Gothita, Solosis, Kadabra, and Kirlia).
For the duration of the event, Mega Alakazam will appear in Mega Raids, so you’ll need to participate in Raid Battles to catch a Mega Alakazam for yourself. Wander around long enough and you’re guaranteed to see a Mega Alakazam, perhaps even a shiny one, hovering above a raid location.
If you do choose to battle Mega Alakazam courageously, what are the best counters to use? Every Pokemon has weak spots and It’s worth remembering that the Mega Alakazam is weak against Bug-type, Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon.
There will also be a Deoxys Raid Day on Sunday 11th September, from 2 pm to 5 pm local time, where all Deoxys forms will appear in Raid Battles more frequently.
