During the Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event, from February 8 – 14, 2023, the following bosses will be available to battle in Raids:

  • Tier 1
    • Chansey
    • Espurr

    • Shinx
  • Tier 3
    • Gallade
    • Lickitung

Not only is this the first time that Mega Gardevoir has appeared in Pokemon GO, but it is also the debut of the extremely cool shiny Tapu Lele as well!

However, Mega Gardevoir Raids won’t give you enough Candy to Mega Evolve it. Therefore, you’ll also want to know how to earn more Mega Energy in Pokemon GO to get a Mega Gardevoir of your own.

What’s more, taking part in Furfrou Raids is the best way to earn Furfrou Candy. Even if Furfrou can’t be evolved, you can use Furfrou Candy to change it into the Valentine’s Day exclusive Heart Form Furfrou!

The table below shows whether you can catch the shiny version of each of these Valentine’s Day Raid bosses:
