Psychic Spectacular Raids

  • Five-star raids: Normal Forme Deoxys (Shiny), Attack Forme Deoxys (Shiny), Defense Forme Deoxys (Shiny), Speed Forme Deoxys (Shiny)
  • Mega raids: Mega Alakazam (Shiny)

Mega Alakazam makes its debut in Mega Raids, and the Mythical Deoxys will also be appearing in five-star raids!

To celebrate the event, we have the Deoxys Raid Day, which takes place on Sunday, September 11, 2022, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time. The special Raid Day celebrates the Mythical Deoxys, who will appear in five-star raids in all forms.

  • All forms of Deoxys appearing more frequently in raids
  • Earn up to five additional daily Raid Passes by spinning Gyms
  • An increased chance of encountering Shiny Deoxys

Since the event is all about Psychic-type Pokemon, Alakazam is the focus. Trainers who evolve Kadabra (from Abra) or catch Alakazam in raids during the event get an Alakazam that knows the Charged Attack Psychic.

  • Trainer Battles: 90 power and a chance to lower the opposing Pokemon’s Defense
  • Gyms and raids: 90 power

Psychic Spectacular Eggs

The following Pokemon will hatch from 7km Eggs during the event:

  • Smoochum (Shiny)
  • Wynaut (Shiny)
  • Chingling

Psychic Spectacular Field Research

While we don’t yet have the list of research tasks, the Pokemon encounters from the tasks will include: 

  • Baltoy (Shiny)
  • Chimecho (Shiny)
  • Elgyem (Shiny)

Lucky trainers may also hatch a Hypno! We also have a hint that Timed Research will focus on Curveball Throws, so get to practicing!
