It is time to view the future through the light as the Psychic Spectacular returns for a third straight year in Pokémon Go and brings with it a number of Pokémon capable of controlling unnatural powers. 

The biggest addition for the event is Mega Alakazam making its Pokémon Go debut, appearing in Mega Raids from Sept. 6 to 12—and beyond. 

In addition to the ‘mon with too many spoons and Deoxys appearing in raids, Ralts, Woobat, Munna, Gothita, Solosis, and more are appearing in the wild more frequently. Elgyem is among those potential encounters too, with it being available as a Shiny for the first time. 

While Psychic Spectacular 2022 isn’t the deepest event in terms of content, there is plenty of research available for players to complete that will net a lot of Elgyem encounters. Shiny hunters rejoice, and here is the breakdown of all of the research tasks and rewards for the event.
