Pokemon Go is kicking off 2022 with a bang, featuring a community day and, now, the new Power Plant event.
The event will feature both Helioptile and its evolution, Heliolisk, with a focus on Electric-type Pokemon. Many of these will be found in greater numbers throughout the event, like Magnemite and even Electrode.
Below are all the details about the event so you’ll be as prepped as possible for when it kicks off.

The Pokemon Go Power Plant event will begin on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 and will run until Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

“Helioptile can evolve into Heliolisk with 50 Helioptile Candy and a Sun Stone,” per the official blog.
