Valentine's Day isn't just about love. Niantic

This month, Valentine's Day isn't the only thing trainers have to be excited about. That's because Incarnate Forme Enamorus its official debut to Pokémon GO courtesy of Elite Raids.

Now before we go a little deeper into that, Elite Raids can be best described as a challenging variety of Raid Battle. These appear from special Raid Eggs which take 24 hours to hatch. Once the Raid Egg hatches, a Raid Boss appears for 30 minutes. The only catch is, if you can call it that, is that these Elite Raid Bosses can only be battled in-person.

Now going back to Incarnate Forme Enamorus, this Pokémon GO appears in Elite Raids on February 14 at these times:

  • 12:00 p.m. (local time)
  • 1:00 p.m. (local time)
  • 5:00 p.m. (local time)
  • 6:00 p.m. (local time)

Once trainers defeat Incarnate Forme Enamorus in an Elite Raid, they'll get the chance to to catch it. That's not all because once trainers complete an Elite Radi Battle against Incarnate Forme Enamorus, different Flying- and Fairy-type Pokémon are going to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. These are:

  • Clefairy
  • Jigglypuff
  • Snubbull

  • Spritzee
  • Swirlix
