We have already told you many times about the great event that will soon take place in Pokémon GO to celebrate the origins of the franchise. However, the festive atmosphere has been felt in the game since last week thanks to multiple events and you should know that it will not end on the Pokémon GO: Kanto Tour, but will continue until Pokémon Day.
The long-awaited event inspired by the creatures of Generation I Pokémon is scheduled for this Saturday, February 20. Although the event will only last half a day, the trainers will be able to continue with the party, as Niantic will continue with the festivities with an event that will begin on Sunday, February 21 until Pokémon Day, on Saturday, February 27, at 8:00 PM (local time).
The official LEVEL UP shirts have arrived – GET YOURS HERE
This will be a separate experience from the Pokémon GO: Kanto Tour, so it doesn’t matter if you have a ticket for that event. During this period you will be able to find Charmander, Squirtle, Weedle, Pikachu, Geodude, Clefairy, Psyduck, Slowpoke, Gastly, Voltorb, Magikarp and other creatures in the wild more frequently, as well as Caterpie, Pidgey, Spearow, Poliwag, Abra, Seel, Machop, Krabby, Exeggcute, Horsea, Goldeen and others, who will be attracted to the Incense.
Of course, there will be other ways to get Pokémon. In Raids will appear Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Magikarp and Dratini (1 star), Scyther, Pinsir, Machoke, Kadabra, Haunter, Graveler and Lapras (3 stars) and Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo (5 stars).
Some Pokémon may learn moves from Community Days
In the 5 km Eggs you can find Pokémon such as Oddish, Bellsprout, Tangela, Dratini, Pichu, Elekid, Magby and others, while as a reward for Field Research players can have encounters with Doduo, Magnemite, Diglett, Omanyte, Kabuto , Snorlax, Jigglypuff, Clefairy and more creatures.
In addition, it will be a very good opportunity to evolve Pokémon, as some will be able to learn the exclusive movements of previous Community Days. We leave you a list with the Pokémon with their respective exclusive attacks that they can learn as they evolve.
Venusaur – Plant Fierce Charizard – Fiery Ring Blastoise – Pikachu Hydrocannon – Surf Eevee – Last Trick Dragonite – Draco Comet
In addition, we remind you that during this week several collection challenges of the Kanto Tour will still be available, so you can take the opportunity to catch Pokémon and complete them.
In case you missed it: March’s Community Day is now due and will mark the debut of the shiny version of the Robin Pokémon!
Team GO Rocket plans something
If you think that’s it, wait, the week will end with a special event involving Team GO Rocket and many Raids. This event will take place on February 28 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (local time) and will be inspired by Kanto’s Pokémon Raids, precisely, of its legendary creatures, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo.
Apparently players will not be able to enjoy this event freely, as Team GO Rocket is up to something and reports indicate that Giovanni, the maximum leader of Team Rocket will return and will do so with a different dark legendary Pokémon. No details have been revealed, but Niantic anticipated that there will be a new special investigation to be able to rescue this creature. Therefore, we recommend you not to miss this event and that you log in during the period to be able to register the investigation.
Another interesting detail is that during the event players will be able to find up to 5 free Raid Passes by spinning photodisks. You can also take the opportunity to defeat many members of Team GO Rocket, since in that period they will appear more frequently in PokéStops and balloons. Finally, you should know that during these 3 hours you can use MT of charged attack so that the Dark Pokémon forget the Frustration attack.
Take advantage of special limited-time packages
Don’t have any items in your bag? Don’t worry, we remind you that Niantic has brought back the weekly bundles to supply players with a large number of useful items in exchange for 1 Pokécoin.
Did you use up your Pokécoins? Do not worry either, since today the carnival began in Pokémon GO for several countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition to the Incense lasting 3 hours and attracting special Pokémon, Niantic shared a free package that includes 2 Incenses, 10 Frambu Berries, 50 Pokéballs and 1 Remote Raid Pass, but claim it as soon as possible, as the event is about to finish.
Additionally, later, from February 27 to March 1, another package will appear, containing 3 Remote Raid Passes.

We remind you that a few hours before the end of the Pokémon GO: Kanto Tour, The Pokémon Company will be holding a concert starring Post Malone, so it will be a great day for Pokémon fans, which will definitely put them in a good mood for battle Team GO Rocket the next day.
