The ongoing Lunar New Year event will end soon, making way for the next Season of Mythical Wishes update event. From Lucky Pokémon bringing Trainers good fortune for the year to come, several Electric-type Pokémon are arriving in electrifying fashion.

The Crackling Voltage event will wrap up the month's seasonal activities as a shadowy presence creeps up on Trainers this February. We've detailed everything about the Crackling Voltage event, including the event schedule, wild encounters, event bonuses, and more.

29th January 2023 Update: We've updated this guide to reflect the start of the Crackling Voltage event, and the event's Field Research tasks are now available for Trainers to complete. The original reporting continues below.

Pokémon GO Crackling Voltage – Event Schedule

The Crackling Voltage event will electrify Trainers thanks to a bountiful of Electric-type Pokémon appearing in wild and Raid encounters. The event will begin on 27th January 2023 at 10 am local time and conclude on 5th February 2023 at 11:59 pm local time.

During this limited-time event, the Alolan deity, Tapu Koko, will feature in five-star Raids along with its Shiny form, and Shiny Helioptile will make its in-game debut. Lastly, a Field Research activity will be available to earn encounters with some magnetic Pokémon, including Dedenne and Helioptile.

Helioptile will also be featured through the event as the Electric/Normal-type Pokémon can be spotted in wild and Raid encounters. Additionally, it can be hatched from 7km Eggs when placed in an Incubator, and you can also earn an encounter with the Pokémon from the Field research activity.
