Pokemon Go Power Plant Helioptile Debut

Dear Trainers, a new event is about to begin in Pokemon GO, and it is full of novelties, bonuses, and more.

As a continuation of the Season of Heritage Story, we will meet with Electric-type Pokemon coming from the Kanto and Kalos Regions. Two new Pokemon will be making their debut in Pokemon GO during this last part of the Season of Heritage story, and those are Helioptile and Heliolisk. Heliolisk is evolved Helioptile, for which you will need 50 Helioptile Candy and a Sun Stone.

As wild encounters, we will have the chance to catch the following Pokemon:

  • Magnemite
  • Grimer
  • Voltorb
  • Electabuzz
  • Porygon
  • Trubbish
  • Helioptile
  • Electrode
  • Jolteon

In one-star Raids, Trainers will be able to battle Pikachu, Beldum, Shinx, Blitzle and Klink. As three-star Raid Bosses, from January 15th, 10:00 a.m. local time until January 24th, 2022, Pokemon such as Scyther, Typhlosion, Mawile, and Druddigon will be featured as Raid Bosses.

From January 24th, 2022, 10:00 a.m. local time, the above-mentioned Pokemon will be replaced by Dewgong, Piloswine, Monferno, and Druddigon. These Pokemon will leave the three-star Raids on February 1st, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

From January 15th, 2022, Genesect Shock Drive with the attack Techno Blast will be featured as a five-star Raid Boss, and it will be replaced by Regice with the attack Thunder on January 24th, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

This Raid Boss will stay in five-star Raids until February 1st, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

As with every event, there will be new Field Research Task Encounters, and they are the following:

  • Magnemite
  • Voltorb
  • Electrike
  • Joltik
  • Helioptile
  • Alolan Grimer
  • Trubbish
  • Emolga

At the very end of their blog post, Niantic mentions a new event that will begin on January 24th, 2022, at noon in local time. It seems that something unexpected will happen, bringing Trainers event bonuses such as frequent Team GO Rocket appearances at PokeStops and in balloons, and a Charged TM which will help Shadow Pokemon forget the Charged Attack Frustration.

More info will come soon, so make sure to check our website for any changes that will be happening in Pokemon GO.
