Recently, Mewtwo became available in Pokémon GO‘s normal Raid Battles, after being exclusive to EX Raid Battles previously. To coincide with this, Niantic has decided to make Psychic-types in general more accessible.

It was recently announced that a new event is set to take place in Pokémon GO soon called the Psychic Spectacular. The event will start tomorrow (October 5) at 1:00pm PST/4:00pm EST and will end on October 14 at 1:00pm PST/4:00pm EST. During this time period, Psychic-type Pokémon will appear more frequently than usual and more Field Research dealing specifically with Psychic-types will become available. Additionally, there will also be a chance for players to encounter shiny Drowzees. Below is a full list of Psychic-type Pokémon currently available in Pokémon GO that are likely to receive increased spawn rates during this event:

  • Abra
  • Kadabra
  • Alakazam
  • Slowpoke
  • Slowbro
  • Drowzee
  • Hypno
  • Exeggcute
  • Exeggutor
  • Starmie
  • Mr. Mime (exclusive to Europe)
  • Jynx
  • Natu
  • Xatu
  • Espeon
  • Slowking
  • Unown
  • Wobbuffet
  • Girafarig
  • Ralts
  • Kirlia
  • Gardevoir
  • Meditite
  • Medicham
  • Spoink
  • Grumpig
  • Lunatone (exclusive to North America, South America, and Africa)
  • Solrock (exclusive to Europe, Asia, and Oceania)
  • Baltoy
  • Claydol
  • Chimecho
  • Beldum
  • Metang
  • Metagross

It may also be worth mentioning that while both Smoochum and Wynaut are both Psychic-types, they can only be found in Eggs, not in the wild, so the increased Psychic-type spawn rate likely won’t affect players’ chances of hatching them. Also, Alolan Raichu is Psychic-type, but so far has only appeared as a Raid Boss, rather than in the wild, so it is also unlikely to be affected by the increased spawn rate of this event.
