Everything you need to know about Bug Out! event in Pokémon Go

Out with the error! The event in Pokémon Go will run until Tuesday, August 16 at 8 pm (local time) and will see the release of four new Pokémon in the game.

The first three are Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt from Gen 7. While evolving Grubbin into Charjabug is just a matter of candy, you’ll need to complete a special requirement to add Vikavolt to your Pokédex. (And collect a lot more candy too!)

The fourth Pokémon is Mega Scizor, which will be available in Mega Raids until Thursday, August 18.

You can now add Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt to your Pokédex.

Aside from these new Pokémon, there are a selection of Ultra Unlocks for you to enjoy!

Both Unown T and Pansage, usually regionally exclusive, will appear in one-star raids. Pansage will also appear in the wild and it is a good idea to use Pinap Berries when catching it to ensure you can evolve this Pokémon. Remember that you will also need a Unova stone.

You’ll receive extra candy, along with double XP, for successfully catching Pokémon with nice, cool, and excellent drops. While players level 31 or higher have a higher chance of earning Candy XL by successfully capturing Pokémon with nice, cool, or excellent releases.
