Although many Pokemon GO players consider PvE Battle Raids the primary draw of the game, there is a growing trainer battle scene that gets just as much enjoyment out of PvP battles and fights against NPC grunts as they do from Legendary Raids. To help shine a spotlight on the trainer battle features in the mobile AR game, Pokemon GO is kicking off a Supereffective Week event to showcase some of the best trainer battle Pokemon.


Pokemon GO players will be able to use the event to encounter increased spawns of some of the most powerful Pokemon in the trainer battle scene. That means it might be time to take a break from hunting down the best Unova region pokemon in the game and concentrate on trainer battles for a few days. In addition to that, fans of shiny Pokemon will also have a chance to run into shiny Tentacool.



Supereffective Week should be a big help for trainers who are having trouble defeating the Team GO Rocket leaders. Be sure to take advantage of the bonuses and features if your battle roster is lacking when it comes to facing off against the bad guys. The event kicks off next week, so players can start preparing for all the activities now...





What Is Supereffective Week?


Supereffective Week is an upcoming Pokemon GO event focused on teaching players the different strengths and weaknesses for each -type of Pokemon. Here are some details from the event's flavor text...


"Did you know that Fairy-type moves are super effective in battle against Fighting-type Pokémon? Or that Psychic-type Pokémon are weak to Bug-type moves? Take part in Supereffective Week to learn more about Pokémon types, and you might discover an exciting Pokémon to partner up with in battle against Team GO Rocket!"

What Are The Supereffective Week Features?


Pokémon that might be strong partners in battle against Team GO Rocket and other Trainers will be appearing more often in the wild, in raids, and in Field Research!


If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Tentacool.


The brand new event is an exciting change of pace and it's very cool that it seems to be designed to help players who are having trouble with the Team GO Rocket grunts and leaders. Hopefully these bonuses will help trainer battle rookies get some practice and build a bit of confidence in that area.
