During our most recent Pokémon GO event, Niantic Labs seems to have realized the value of maintaining a fast pace. While someone at the developer seems to have sent out the in-game message too early, there aren’t many specifics available within the app itself, which might cause confusion. We’re now reportedly receiving a “Psychic Spectacular” event. But, we do have the picture seen above, which includes Claydol, Slowbro, Abra, Drowzee, and Spoink.


There is additional information available on the Pokémon GO blog, despite the patchy in-game notification system.


The occasion will begin tomorrow, October 5, at 1:00 PM Pacific Time, and last for seven days, until October 14, before ending. In addition to the Pokémon shown above, it also states that the uncommon Pokémon Ralts will be more likely to arrive. Beldum is an option as well, however it will soon have a community day. We’ll also get a chance to catch a shiny Drowzee, which is a handy method for me to add to the long list of shiny Pokémon that I still don’t own. I have a Magmar!

While purple is kind of a Halloween-like hue and Psychic-types are connected to spookiness in the Pokémon universe, this event doesn’t seem to be a Halloween celebration. There doesn’t seem to be any further extra boost to XP, egg distance, stardust, or anything else of the type since it’s sort of a smaller-scale placeholder to honor the arrival of chief Psychic honcho Mewtwo.

Yet, as the game progresses, little incidents will become more significant. For starters, they’re thrilling and convey the idea that the game is always evolving. Another reason is because as the number of Pokémon increases, it becomes more difficult to capture them all during typical spawn times. Because to circumstances like these, you are more inclined to go out and attempt to capture a missing Psychic-type Pokémon.

Keep checking to see what may spawn tomorrow. There will undoubtedly be a larger event shortly, and Gen 4 may even make an appearance.

Today, the long-anticipated event has finally been made public. Psychic Extraordinary!

Beginning on October 5 and continuing until October 14 we will see an increase in the number of Psychic Type Pokémon appearing in the wild. With the rumored Halloween event just around the horizon, this provides an excellent introduction to the more spooky Pokémon Types.



Niantic doesn’t seem to be taking any spins with this one, so we won’t either. From October 5, 2018, from 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT 7), until October 14, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT 7), the event will take place.

Check your local time zones as usual to be more ready for the event’s commencement.


Along with one of the most well-known Psychic Types, Drowzee, additional Psychic Type Pokémon including Abra, Ralts, and Baltoy will begin to spawn in the wild right away.

Trainers are more than excited to enter the Psychic Mood since this will provide room for further field research on psychic types, but we are not yet clear what it will entail.

Last but not least, Shiny Drowzee will make its debut at this event, which is perhaps its strongest selling point.

We believe it is not a coincidence that the Psychic Spectacular is taking place concurrently with the latest Raid Boss Shakeup, which seems to include a sizable number of Psychic Type Pokémon.
