Open your mind to what you can’t see with your bare eyes and take your first step into a larger world. That’s what Pokémon Go Psychic Spectacular is all about – that, and catching lots of Pokémon of the Psychic-type, of course. It’s up to you what to do with them afterwards, but fielding them in the Psychic Cup may be a great idea to obtain fantastic rewards.

Speaking of rewards, Psychic Spectacular has other ways of bringing in some additional items and encounters: Field Research, a Timed Research, and several Collection Challenges await completion. This event, which returns annually, runs from September 20, 2023, at 10am local time until September 24, 2023, at 8pm local time.

Here are all Pokémon Go Psychic Spectacular tasks and their rewards.
