Trainers,
It’s time to celebrate everything cute and creepy-crawly—that’s right, the Bug Out! event is back! Get ready to work on your throws, make progress toward your Bug Catcher medal, and challenge Mega Scizor in Mega Raids!
And, if you can’t get enough of Caterpie or totally love Ledyba, we’ve heard there’s even more to unlock during this event. Maybe Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo is the key to making this event a little more ultra?
