Pokémon Go is celebrating a Psychic Spectacular, while buffing the spawn rates of Shiny Pokémon and introducing Solosis and Gothita to the game. The event will take place from March 27 at 8 a.m. until March 30 at 10 p.m. in your local time.

Psychic-type Pokémon like Abra, Ralts, Spoink, Beldum, Gothita, and Solosis will be hatching from two kilometer eggs, and Chimecho, Drowzee, Natu, Exeggcute, and others will be spawning more often in the wild. Solosis and Gothita will also have boosted spawns. This is a good chance to grab Beldum and Ralts, who both evolve into strong Pokémon (Metagross and Gardevoir) if you need a steel- or fairy-type attacker, respectively.

Baltoy will also appear Shiny for the first time.
