As always, there’s also a series of event-exclusive Field Research tasks to unlock and complete, with rewards including encounters with Electric-type Pokemon including Joltik, Magnemite, and Electrike.

If you’re struggling to find Helioptile in the wild, completing these Field Research tasks might be the best way to catch one. Emolga is another standout as it won’t be appearing in the wild.

Pokemon Go Power Plant start & end date

The Power Plant event begins in Pokemon Go on Wednesday, January 19, at 10am local time and ends on Tuesday, February 1, at 10am local time.

This means you’ll have just under two weeks to complete all of these Field Research tasks and unlock all of the rewards on offer – and hopefully earn enough Helioptile Candy to evolve a Heliolisk!

That’s not all, though, as the Power Plant event is actually split into two parts. The second half is called ‘A Bad Feeling…’ and it kicks off on January 24. Expect appearances from Team Go Rocket and more.
