So, Route, here’s a little Valentine’s event for you!

Starting tonight (Friday, February 8th), there will be announcements made in TV and radio reporting a decreasing number of Volbeat and Illumise in both the Kanto and Johto regions. In an attempt to help boost the population of these bug-types, Bugsy and the professors have proposed a voluntary blackout to ensure their mating this year goes as smoothly as possible. The blackout should be effective since the Pokémon in question are nocturnal and the glowing lights on their bodies are a substantial part of their mating ritual. Can't have the light pollution from all these cities cramping their style! Leading up to Valentine’s Day, there will be further reminders in all kinds of media, including fliers set up around the Centers and ads anywhere you can see and hear them.

Naturally, the peak of their mating season just happens to coincide with Valentine's Day, so the voluntary blackout will likewise be taking place on February 14th, and will last for twelve hours – from sunset to sunrise. Though it is voluntary, people are strongly advised to participate, and the Centers, Marts and most larger business and hotel chains in all the cities and towns will be turning out their lights to help out the Pokémon.

Note that this will only affect the lights, of course! This is not a full-on power outage, so your plumbing, water, heat, and other utilities are completely safe.

So take the opportunity to curl up with friends, family or just someone you like! Light some candles, play board games, or go outside to watch the patterns drawn in the sky by the Volbeat as part of their courtship dance to woo the Illumise.

But wait, there’s more!

As a bonus, there will be plenty of Volbeat and Illumise around for capture … just about anywhere! The swarm will last from February 14th until February 17th, during which time you will stumble over both Pokémon fairly easily. Just don’t catch too many of them – we’re trying to make them increase in number, after all!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, comment below!
