Pokémon GO players are going to want to be on the lookout for more Grass-type Pokémon near them this weekend. Starting tomorrow, May 5, expect to see Grass-type Pokémon crop up more often as you explore your world with Pokémon GO. According to The Pokémon Company, it’s a great opportunity to catch Pokémon that you may not have encountered in your area. The increased numbers of Grass-type Pokémon will continue until May 8, when the Pokémon return to their usual habitats. Developer Niantic’s official statement regarding this in-game event is as follows:
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.
