We were thrilled to see how many Trainers enjoyed the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto event! And we’re excited to announce that we’ll be holding another Pokémon GO Tour event, this time celebrating Johto!

Pokémon GO Tour: Johto will also be accompanied with an in-person event experience in some areas!

Pokémon GO Tour: Johto

Celebrate Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver in a whole new way! In the ticketed version of Pokémon GO Tour: Johto, Trainers will choose between the Gold Version and Silver Version event experiences, each with version-exclusive Pokémon! Complete event-exclusive Special Research, and test your Pokémon-collection skills to receive an encounter with Celebi with a special move when caught during the event. Trading with a friend who chose the other version will be important, just like in Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver!

After completing the Pokémon GO Tour: Johto Special Research, Trainers will be able to access an exclusive Masterwork Research line. Stay tuned for more details on this difficult and rewarding research.

Tickets are now live for the global event! Stay tuned for more details on when tickets for the in-person event goes live. If you purchase a Pokémon GO Tour: Johto ticket by the following dates, then you’ll also receive access to the Season of Heritage’s January and February Timed Research!
