Pokemon Go February guide: All the upcoming events, raids, and new Pokemon
With the ongoing Power Plant event, Spark and Helioptile have almost cracked the final mechanism of the mysterious door in Pokémon Go. By February, they should have opened it to reveal whatever is inside. Let’s take a look at all the upcoming content in February on Pokémon Go.
February’s Research Breakthrough encounter will feature Espurr and a Shiny Espurr for the lucky trainers out there. As always, every Monday will allow players to purchase a bundle containing a Remote Raid Pass and more for one PokéCoin. As a monthly bonus for the Season of Heritage, everyone will receive increased XL Candy and 2x XP from hatching eggs.
February RaidsMaking their return to five-star raids next month are the legendaries Regirock (February 1st – 9th), Registeel (February 9th – 16th), and then until the end of the month players will encounter Deoxys in its Normal, Attack, and Speed forms. The first two weeks will feature Mega Houndoom in Mega Raids and the final two will see trainers encounter Mega Ampharos. Everyone will also get two free Raid Passes by spinning Gym discs in the last two weeks of the month.
