Besides this, the developers are planning to hold two additional events this month. Later this month, the game plans to host a Kanto Power Plant event that will focus on Steel-type and Electric-type Pokemon. The developers will add Helioptile and Flabebe to the game in the coming weeks. A normal Community Day event featuring the Water/Ice-type Spheal will also take place later this month, while a “Community Day Classic” event featuring Bulbasaur was also just added to the schedule.
