Niantic and The Pokémon Company have announced a new event for this January at Pokémon GO: the power station. As veteran fans of the saga will be able to identify, this name makes the Electric type excited, and so it is; in fact, thanks to this event we will be able to capture for the first time in the iOS and Android game Helioptile, the Electric/Normal-type Generator Pokémon we discovered in Generation 6. Let’s find out all the details of the event, including the duration and confirmed features.
Pokémon GO Power Central Event: date, duration and characteristics
The Pokémon GO Power Central event will be held from this Wednesday, January 19, 2022 from 10:00 until Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at 10:00, always local time. A whole week in which Spark has a feeling that unlocking the last of the locks on the door (Legacy Season story arc) requires an Electric-type Pokémon to supply that energy. What better way than with creatures like Magnemite, Voltorb, or Helioptile, the Power Generator Pokémon. All of them will spawn in the wild.
