It’s time to GO-GO-GO: Grass-types blooming this weekend!

Grass-type Pokémon are arriving en masse for a short time only in Pokémon GO!

Pokémon GOers, look out! This weekend expect to see all things Grass-type, as they’re suddenly all over the bloomin’ place!

However this is only for a short time – the Grass Weekend event will be running on the afternoon of May 5th and closing May 8th, PDT. But here, the guys at the Pokémon GO team say it much better:


Professor Willow’s research into Pokémon habitats around the world has uncovered some interesting findings. His initial reports indicate that we’ll see an influx of Grass-type Pokémon sometime this weekend. These Pokémon will appear in the wild more frequently starting the afternoon of May 5, but only for a short period of time. We anticipate that Pokémon will return to their normal habitats on May 8, 2017 PDT.

Help us contribute to Professor Willow’s ongoing research by catching as many Grass-type Pokémon as possible this weekend. While you’re out with friends and family, don’t forget to document your findings using the Pokémon GO AR camera and share your screenshots on social media using #PokemonGO.

So, what are you waiting for? Get stocked up and ready to grab those Grass-types, trainers! #PokemonGO

Incidentally, that Bulbasaur does look unusually light green, leading people to speculate on it being a Shiny Bulbasaur. We’ll have to wait and see if this means that we have more Shiny Pokémon released during this event.

News just in: Lure modules will last for 6 hours when used throughout this event! Wow!
