A preview of a new event in Pokemon GO – Power Plant. What do you need to know?

It was announced that a new event in Pokemon GO will start tomorrow. What attractions will go to the players?

A lot is happening in Pokemon GO in January. The Mountains of Power event recently ended, followed by Spheal’s first Community Day of the year. This, of course, is not the end. This weekend will be another Community Day, but in a changed form – Community Day Classic (more information on this topic: Community Day Classic in Pokemon GO – what is it? When will it take place?).

It turns out that a completely new event called Power Plant will start tomorrow. In addition to the fact that players will be able to catch many interesting creatures, fight Team GO Rocket, or perform interesting Field Research, a completely new genre of Pokemon will appear in the game. What exactly?
