Pokémon GO certainly has been going full-speed ahead these past couple of months, with multiple community and worldwide events planned for the entire year. The team behind the game has announced that the “Bug Out!” event will be making a comeback and will take place from Wednesday, August 10, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

As per the latest statement from the Pokemon GO team, “Trainers, it’s time to celebrate everything cute and creepy-crawly—that’s right, the Bug Out! event is back! Get ready to work on your throws, make progress toward your Bug Catcher medal, and challenge Mega Scizor in Mega Raids! And, if you can’t get enough of Caterpie or totally love Ledyba, we’ve heard there’s even more to unlock during this event. Maybe Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo is the key to making this event a little more ultra?”

A handful of Pokémon will finally make their debut in the spin-off title, including Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt. Players can now finally encounter Mega Scizor in Mega Raids, with a chance to see a shiny one as well. Additionally, there will be event bonuses, and players can get 2× XP for catching Pokémon using “Nice” Throws, “Great” Throws, and “Excellent” Throws.

Players also have a chance to obtain the Bug Catcher Pose and 15,000 XP if they complete the Collection Challenge with Bug-type Pokémon.
