Pokémon GO starts the psychological spectacle tomorrow – here’s how to take advantage of it

The big psychological spectacle takes place every year in Pokémon GO. Content that you can use will then be activated within approximately 5 days. Here at MeinMMO we will show you exactly how best to do this.

When does the event take place? The psychological spectacle 2023 starts tomorrow, Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. German time. You will have the opportunity to play the new content extensively and benefit from the bonuses until Sunday, September 24th, 2023 at 8:00 p.m.

The content includes a new shiny, changes to raids and spawns and you can also earn more experience.

What bonus is there? During the Psychic Spectacle Period, you will receive more experience if you catch Pokémon with Curveball throws. However, developer Niantic has not yet revealed exactly how much experience you will gain.

Nevertheless, it is clear that catching during this period should be more worthwhile if you get your ball moving beforehand. The event had a similar focus on curveballs last year.
