We’re only a few days into September and Niantic is already blessing us with a range of events.

On Sunday, players had the chance to take part in the Hoopa’s Arrival event, which saw Psychic, Ghost and Dark-type Pokemon attracted to Incense throughout the day – plus gave players the opportunity to encounter and capture the Mythical Pokemon itself.

Now, heading further into the month and the Season of Mischief, we’re about to receive Pokemon GO’s annual Psychic event.

So ahead of it, here are all of the details you need to know to get you prepared for the Pokemon GO Psychic Spectacular 2021, including the start date, time and more.
