POKÉMON Go is resting following the huge Elite Raids, and Togetic Community Day.
A new Guardian Deity Pokémon will be available in five-star raids this week.
The Go Battle League will also change to feature a new themed cup.
Here’s everything that’s happening in Pokémon Go from April 17 to April 23.
Trapinch takes the spotlight
This week’s Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, from 6pm local time.
The tough-as-nails baby dragon Trapinch will be available commonly during Spotlight Hour.
Trapinch evolves into Vibrava then Flygon, so this is a perfect chance to collect enough candy for the evolution.
Any Pokémon evolved during this hour will also give you double XP, even if they aren’t from the Flygon family.
Tapu Bulu enters the raids
Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, from 6pm local time.
Tapu Bulu is the target of five-star raids this week, and will be available in every gym during Raid Hour.
Other Tapus have been part of five-star raids over the last few months, but it has been a few weeks since the last appearance.
Alongside Tapu Bulu, Mega Slowbro will be the target of this week’s Mega Raids.
Weather reigns over the Go Battle League
Go Battle League will change on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at 9pm UK time.
Last week’s four cups will be reduced down to the usual two this week.
The Great League is staying, but the other cups will be gone.
Weather Cup will be the other cup available this week, with a CP limit of 2.5k.
Aside from this, Pokémon also have to be Water-, Rock-, Ice- or Fire-type in order to enter.
However, there are no restrictions on certain Pokémon beyond this.
