POKÉMON Go is preparing to Spring into Spring, with everything this week themed around the season.
Two Pokémon will be making their debut, and new costumes can be found for Pikachu and Eevee.
Cherry blossoms are one of the themes this week.
Eggs are featuring prominently this week, and Regieleki will appear in Elite Raids.
Here’s everything that’s happening in Pokémon Go from April 3 to April 9.
Exeggcute takes the spotlight
This week’s Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, from 6pm local time.
After three weeks of starters, this week brings things back to basics with Exeggcute.
Fitting in with the Easter theme, Exeggcute can be found more commonly, making it a great chance to catch Exeggcutor.
Any Pokémon caught during this hour will also give you double XP, not just the eggs.
Spring into Spring event starts
These events will start on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, at 10am local time and end on Monday, April 9, 2023, at 8pm local time.
Cutiefly and Ribombee are making their debut in Pokémon Go as part of the spring-themed event.
There are also new costumed Pokémon, including the Pikachu and Eevee lines all wearing Cherry Blossom.
Pink and Egg-themed Pokémon will also become more common in the wild, in eggs, and in raids as part of the event.
Lugia storms raids once more
Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, from 6pm local time.
Ho-Oh received a double bill in five-star raids, and now it’s Lugia’s turn to double up.
Lugia will appear in every gym during Raid Hour, and will be available in five-star raids for the rest of the week.
While Lugia has two weeks as the star, Mega Alakazam will be leaving to be replaced by Mega Lopunny.
Spring takes on the Go Battle League
Go Battle League will change on Thursday, April 6, 2023, at 9pm UK time.
The Master League will stay for another week but the Little Cup will be replaced by the Spring Cup.
This will have a maximum CP limit of 1.5k, and only Water-, Grass-, and Fairy-type Pokémon can enter.
There is one exception to this. Toxapex is not allowed to enter despite being a Water-type.
Regieleki bounces into Elite Raids
The next Elite Raid will take place on Sunday, April 9, 2023, at 11am, 2pm, and 5pm.
As the last Elite Raid featured Regidrago, we know that Regieleki will be the focus of this one.
Players will be given notice on the locations these raids will take place so they can prepare for battle.
It will be difficult to take down and catch Regieleki, so it’s important you take it down in teams.
