Event Pokemon Showcases


Throughout the event, various PokéStops will host event-themed Pokémon showcases. These event Pokémon showcases will feature Spoink, the only Pokémon that can be featured in them.

During Pokémon showcases, typically the largest or smallest Pokémon submitted is sought to award the first place.

For this reason, you should make sure to keep your largest and smallest Spoink to have a strong contender for both types of showcases.

Make sure to catch various Spoink and enter them into these Pokémon showcases to receive multiple valuable rewards. This is especially true if you achieve a high placement or even win these competitions.
