When is the Bug Out Pokemon GO 2022 Event Coming Out

The Pokemon GO Bug Out 2022 event is going to come out in August, and the exact release date and time are August 10th at 10 AM local server time. According to the official announcement post, it will wrap up on August 18th at 8 PM local time. There’s a lot to look forward to. For one, Grubbin and its evolutions, Charjabug and Vikavolt, will be making their debut in Pokemon GO. The first evolution requires 25 Grubbin Candies, and the second 100 Candies. For the latter, you also have to be near an active Magnetic Lure Module for the process to happen.

As far as special raids go, Genesect with a Chill Drive will be in five-star Raids, and Mega Scizor in Mega Raids. In one-star Raids, you’ll see the likes of Unown T, Joltik, Paras, Pansage and Pineco, while Pinsir, Venomoth, Shuckle and Forretress will appear in three-star Raids.
