Pokémon GO PokéStop Showcases featuring Bug-type Pokémon, Ends on April 19, 2024

Trainers, Niantic, and Pokémon GO have been taking it easy with PokéStops Showcases, and we haven’t seen one since April 13, 2024. There haven’t been any PokéStop Showcases since then, but today we’re getting reports from our community that you’ll finally be able to put a Pokémon in a PokéStop Showcase.

Niantic and Pokémon GO want to change things up a bit, and starting on April 16, and ending on April 19, 2024, players will be able to compete with all Bug-type Pokémon.

If you’ve forgotten what PokéStop Showcases are, let me refresh your memory and tell you all the details about this feature.
