The Psychic Spectacular 2022 event makes its way to Pokémon Go once again. As always, the event will feature Psychic type Pokémon and they will be the focus point of all tasks and rewards. The event will also see the introduction of Mega Alakazam available in Mega Raids from 6th of September 2022 onwards.

While we will see the legendary Generation 3 Pokémon, Deoxys, the event will offer a higher frequency of Abra, Slowpoke, Ralts, Solosis, Kadabra and more to catch in the wild. Players will also have the chance to catch shiny Elgyem if they can put in the effort. With that let’s look at the field research tasks and rewards in the game.
