Starter Pokémon takes over Community Day this week in Pokémon Go

POKÉMON Go is getting ready for this month’s Community Day, alongside the Valorous Hero event.

Community Day this month will feature a starter Pokémon so it’s bound to be a hit.

A Little Cup also joins the Battle League, with a fun typing twist.

Here’s everything that’s happening in Pokémon Go from May 15 to May 21.

Bellsprout takes the spotlight

This week’s Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, from 6pm local time.

As a two-stage evolution, players will require a lot of candy to catch a Victreebel, making this a great opportunity to do so.

As usual, there are increased spawns and chances to spot a shiny during this hour.

Any Pokémon transferred during this hour will also give you double candy, making getting Victreebel even easier.

Element Cup takes on the Go Battle League

Go Battle League will change on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 9pm UK time.

The Ultra League will be replaced by the Master League with an uncapped CP limit.

To counter this the Element Cup: Little Edition is here, with a CP limit of just 500.

Only Fire-, Water-, and Grass-type Pokémon can enter, and they must have never evolved despite being able to.

Tapu Fini storms raids once more

Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, from 6pm local time.

Tapu Fini is getting a double-billing in raids, and will be available again this week.

As part of Raid Hour it will be available in every single gym as a five-star raid. 

Mega Pinsir will join Tapu Fini, and is available in Mega Raids for another week.

A Valorous Hero event ends

A Valorous Hero started on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at 10am and will end on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 8pm local time.

This will be your last chance to catch the event-exclusive costumed Ponyta.

A number of research tasks reward you with Ponyta, but there is a special Ponyta with a Candace accessory if you complete them all.

Fennekin comes to Community Day

Community Day will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2023, from 2pm until 5pm local time.

This month’s Community Day will feature Fennekin, the Fire-type starter from Pokémon X & Y.

Alongside the increased spawns and shiny chance, it can learn special moves if you manage to evolve one into Delphox.

Blast Burn will be the charged move of choice if evolved during Community Day, or Mystical Fire if it evolves after the event.
