The Research Breakthrough encounter may just sparkle gold for you next month. Starting July 1st at 1 PM Pacific, you can encounter Lickitung as the weekly Research Breakthrough. It may be a far cry from the Legendary Breakthroughs of the past, but Lickitung is certainly rare.

Here are the Spotlight Hours happening in July 2022:

  • Tuesday, July 5th, 2022 from 6 PM – 7 PM: Ledyba Spotlight Hour with double XP for catching Pokémon
  • Tuesday, July 12th, 2022 from 6 PM – 7 PM: Machop Spotlight Hour with double Candy for catching Pokémon
  • Tuesday, July 19th, 2022 from 6 PM – 7 PM: Staryu Spotlight Hour with double Candy for transferring Pokémon
  • Tuesday, July 26th, 2022 from 6 PM – 7 PM: Meditite Spotlight Hour with double XP for evolving Pokémon

Events happening in July 2022 include:

  • Wednesday, July 6th – Tuesday, July 12th: Pokémon GO Anniversary Event. This event will focus on Charizard, debuting Party Hat Charizard and Cake Costume Pikachu.
    • The event will culminate with a wave of Team GO Rocket content including the debut of Shadow Latios and a new Giovanni Research.
  • Sunday, July 17th: Starly Community Day, featuring the debut of Shiny Starly.
  • Wednesday, July 27th – Tuesday, August 2nd: A mysterious event will introduce new Pokémon debuts a "new adventures."

That seems light for a month of events, especially in the summer. I'm sure Ultra Unlock will change that.
