Pokemon GO Season of Mythic Wishes Crackling Voltage Event Guide

We are about to enter the final month of the Season of Mythic Wishes. While the season focused on the upcoming Pokemon GO Tour celebrating the Hoenn region, Pokemon from the Unova and Alola regions were also introduced. For example, this event will bring back one of Alola’s island deities and introduce their Shiny version!

With the arrival of Shiny Tapu Koko (and Shiny Helioptile), a variety of Electric-type Pokémon will appear. Also, you’ll encounter some Steel and Poison types thanks to Team GO Rocket crashing the event halfway through. Their “sub-event”, the takeover of Team GO Rocket, will have its own guide and will be released closer to the event’s start time.

For now, check out what’s happening during the Crackling Voltage event with our guide below:

Pokémon GO’s Season of Mythic Wishes – Sizzling Suspense

Begins: Friday, January 27, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

ends: Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 23:59 local time.

Pokémon Debuts – Shiny Helioptile, Shiny Tapu Koko, and Shadow Pokémon

Shiny Tapu Koko will finally be available in Pokémon GO. You can only find this island deity in five-star raids.

As for Shiny Helioptiles, they are available in the wild, via field research task reward encounters, hatched from 7km Eggs obtained during the event, and in One Star Raids. Shiny rates have been increased for two “catch” methods – Eggs and Raids. For best results, you should focus on these two methods when adding Shiny Helioptile (and Shiny Heliolisk) to your team and Pokédex.

During the Team GO Rocket Takeover Event, the nefarious (but stylishly dressed) Team GO Rocket grunts, leaders, and Big Boss Giovanni battle it out with some new Shadow Pokémon. In particular, Giovanni will fight with Shadow Registeel, which you can catch after defeating him.
