The next Pokemon Go event is on the way for July 2023, with the Catching Some Z’s event.

It has been confirmed that the Catching Some Zs event in Pokemon Go will be happening from July 15, 2023, to July 16, 2023. That only gives players a little over a day to play through the event, but luckily it will be happening on a weekend, and that provides a small advantage to such a narrow timetable. Unfortunately, not every player may have a chance to play through the event or earn any rewards that could be available for participating in it, such as catching Nightcap Snorlax.
