Also, a new cup has been added to the Go Battle League that will challenge players.

Here’s everything that’s happening in Pokémon Go from May 22nd to May 28th.

Shadow raids come into play

The first Shadow Raids appear in Pokémon Go Monday, May 22, 2023.

Shadow Mewtwo will be the first target of this new raid type that will appear in every gym taken over by Team Rocket members.

These five-star raids cannot be completed using remote raid passes, meaning players must meet in person.

Shadow Raids will be more difficult than typical five-star raids, but a new item, Shadow Gems, can help players defeat them.

This also marks the start of the Rising Shadows event, however details about the event are kept secret for now.

Skorupi is in the spotlight

This week’s Spotlight Hour takes place on Tuesday, May 23, 2023out of 6 p.m local time.

Skorupi, the pre-evolution of Drapion, is the target of this week’s Spotlight Hour.

As usual, this hour has more spawns and a chance to spot a Shiny.

Any Pokemon that evolves during that hour will also give you double XP, so wait until then to evolve
