Raid Day will also return, and a rare Legendary Pokémon will appear in five-star raids.

Here’s everything that’s happening in Pokémon Go from May 1 to May 7.

Alolan Geodude takes the spotlight

This week’s Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, from 6pm local time.

Alolan Geodude is the target of Spotlight Hour and will appear more frequently during this time.

As it can evolve twice, this is a great chance to catch Alolan Golem.

Any Pokémon caught during this hour will also give you double XP.

An Instinctive Hero event starts

An Instinctive Hero will start on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, at 10am and end on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 8pm local time.

As part of the event Larvesta and Volcarona will make their debuts, and Larvesta will be hatchable in eggs.

Eggs will also have an increased chance of hatching shinies, and a special research task will net you a costumed Elekid.

Mantyke will also make its shiny debut, and will be hatchable from 7km eggs.

Little Cup returns to the Go Battle League

Go Battle League will change on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at 9pm UK time.

The Great League will be replaced by the Ultra League with a maximum CP limit of 2.5k.

Little Cup will also return, the league for the weakest Pokémon in the Battle League.

It has a CP limit of just 500, and Pokémon must have not evolved and still be able to evolve in order to enter.

Genesect storms raids

Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, from 6pm local time.

Tapu Bulu will finally leave raids, and Genesect will take its place. 

Genesect will be in the Storm Drive form, meaning its signature move, Techno Blast, will deal Electric-type damage.

Mega Slowbro will finally leave raids, and be replaced by Mega Scizor.

Raid Day makes a comeback

Raid Day will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 11am, until 2pm local time.

We don’t know the details of Raid Day yet, such as which Pokémon will appear, but it’s safe to say that there will be plenty of Raids at this time.

This is the perfect chance to get out there and catch some rare ‘mons by taking on raids with others.
