Pokémon Go is hosting a bug-themed event, Bug Out, again this year.
From June 26 at 8 a.m. until July 1 at 10 p.m. in your local time, bug Pokémon will be spawning in abundance. More bug-types will also pop up in raids and hatch out of five kilometer eggs. There’s also doubled catch XP during the event period.
Dwebble’s Shiny form is releasing with this event, so make sure to tap on all the hermit crab Pokémon you see to try and grab one. Dwebble’s Shiny coloration is subtle, but its evolved form turns a stark green.
Players will be able to find Pokémon like Caterpie, Surskit, Venipede, Weedle, Yanma, and more frequently in the wild. For those who don’t have a Venipede or its fully evolved form, Scolipede, this event is a good opportunity to grind out those candy.
There’s also a set of Field Research to complete that reward bug Pokémon and other goodies.
