Posted in: Games, Mobile Games, Niantic, Pokémon GO | Tagged: pokemon, Ultra Beasts, World of Wonders

With the May 2024 events announced for Pokémon GO, what can we expect to see added to the game that has not yet been announced by Niantic?

Article Summary

  • May Spotlight Hours to feature Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Abra, Elgyem, and Mareanie with various bonuses.
  • Diancie Special Research kicks off May events, with potential for a Popplio Community Day.
  • GO Battle Weekend, Rivals Week, and Ultra Space Wonders hint at competitive play and Ultra Beast content.
  • Master Ball offered through Masterwork Research and increased Shiny odds during Flock Together Research Day.

So far, we know every Pokémon that will feature in the weekly Tuesday Spotlight Hours in Pokémon GO. We also have a list of upcoming events. We do not, however, know what is happening in every one of those events… but we can look at hints to make an educated guess. Let’s get to it.

First up, are the Spotlight Hours and bonuses coming to Pokémon GO in May 2024:

  • Tuesday, May 7, 2024: Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan with double transfer Candy, can be Shiny

This feature ties into Rivals Week, which will also offer a rotating chance at regional species both in the wild and in Tier Three Raids.

The following week, we have a one-time Community Day species:

  • Tuesday, May 14, 2024: Abra with double evolution XP, can be Shiny

The following selection is the best one of the month:

  • Tuesday, May 21, 2024: Elgyem with double Catch Stardust, can be Shiny

Elgyem is a relatively rare spawn and is hardly ever featured in events, so a chance at Shiny hunting this one sounds nice to me. We close out with the only species not currently available in its Shiny form:

  • Tuesday, May 23, 2024: Mareanie with double catch XP

Now, for the other events, here are the events coming to Pokémon GO in May 2024:

  • May 1, 2024: Diancie Special Research available to all Trainers
  • May 4 – 5, 2024: GO Battle Weekend
  • May 4 – 9, 2024: Rivals Week

You can read our full breakdown of this event here.

  • May 11, 2024: Flock Together Research Day

This event will see boosted Shiny odds for Spearow, Doduo, Hoothoot, Taillow, and Rufflet.

  • May 14 – 19, 2024: Catching Wonders’

This event will offer a Master Ball through Masterwork Research.

  • May 19, 2024: May Community Day: TBA


  • May 23 – 28, 2024: Ultra Space Wonders

This event will surely relate to Ultra Beasts. My guess is that we will see the Poipole-themed research culminate in a Naganadel-themed event. We shall see.

  • May 26, 2024: Incense Day
