Nihilego escapes the Ultra Wormhole in Pokémon Go this week


WE hope you got your hands on Shadow Mewtwo last week, because there are big changes coming to Pokémon Go.

A new Ultra Beast takes centre stage, and a secret event is coming for fans.

Nihilego makes its comeback.

If you want to know what’s going on in Pokémon Go this week, then don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything coming to Pokémon Go from November 21 to November 27, 2022.

Petilil takes the spotlight in Pokémon Go

This week’s Spotlight hour takes place on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, from 6pm local time.

Petilil isn’t that rare of a Pokémon and during this spotlight hour it won’t even be available in Shiny form.

However, the double candy bonus for transferring Pokémon during this event is still possible, so save you grinding for this time.

Astral Eclipse event starts

The Astral Eclipse event will start on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, starting at 10am local time.

Niantic hasn’t revealed much about this event yet, but as Nihilego is returning this week, it’s likely something to do with this.

The event will be active until Monday, November 28, 2022, at 8pm local time.

Nihilego takes over gyms in Raid Hour 

This week, raid hour takes place on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, starting at 6pm local time.

Guzzlord will finally leave five-star raids, and Poison/Rock-type Nihilego will take its place.

With its defensive typing this is a great ‘mon to use in the Battle League.

Master League and Catch Cup come to Go Battle League

The Go Battle League changes on Thursday, November 24, 2022, starting at 8pm UK time.

It’s the last week to improve your ranking for Season 12’s Battle League and to get the 100 wins you need for challenges.

Master League is back, and a new cup for the Season of Light Catch Cup will make up the cups this week.

Only Pokémon caught since September 1, are allowed to enter, with a maximum CP of 1.5k.

Unknown Event starts

A mystery event will take place on Sunday, November 27, 2022, from 11am to 5pm local time.

Niantic hasn’t revealed any solid information on the upcoming event that will take place this Sunday, so unfortunately we can’t tell you.

It is likely to be something involving Ultra Beasts though, due to Nihilego’s appearance.
