Virtual Pokémon Go Event Allows You to Catch 150 Original Pokémon From Kanto Region

December 8, 2020

Next year, Pokémon turns 25 and Pokémon Go turns five. To celebrate, Niantic is launching a virtual ticketed event for trainers all around the world on Saturday, February 20, 2021.

The event (dubbed Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto) makes you choose between a Red or Green version, with different versions offering different Pokémon. In a throwback to the original Red and Green days, you won’t be able to complete your collection without finding a friend to trade with.

What makes this event special? In addition to event-exclusive Special Research, the initial 150 Pokémon discovered by players will be Shiny. Don’t worry about missing out — you’ll still be able to encounter these Pokémon later.

After completing enough research and training, players can discover a Shiny Mew. Keep in mind you can buy tickets now ($11.99 plus applicable taxes and fees) via the in-app store, and buying early enough gives you access to Special Research Stories for the Community Day events in January and February.

On February 20, the event will last from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Be sure to snag your tickets today and use these next two months to brush up on your skills as a trainer!
