PokéStop Showcases

There will not be Wooper or Paldean Wooper Showcases due to the scoring bug involving different forms of the same species.

However, it’s been reported that there are Squirtle PokéStop Showcases. This is likely due to Squirtle being the default Pokémon for Showcases and they didn’t change the schedule.


The following Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild.
