Pokemon Go will be bringing back some old exclusive attacks as part of its upcoming Johto Celebration event next week. Pokemon Go has released new details about its upcoming Johto Celebration event, which will include a new opportunity to obtain four Pokemon with exclusive moves that were previously only available during Community Day events. Any Meganium, Typhlosion, Ampharos, or Tyranitar evolved during the event will learn their 2018 Community Day move, giving players a second opportunity to add these exclusive movesets to their collections. The event will begin starting January 26th, following the end of the Hoenn Celebration event, which started earlier this week. The Johto Celebration Event is the final event leading into the Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto event, a ticketed event that gives players the opportunity to capture Shiny versions of all 151 Kanto Pokemon.

Here's the full details about next week's Johto Celebration event:

Johto Celebration Event - Dates and Times

The Johto Celebration Event runs from Tuesday, January 26th at 10 AM local time to Sunday, January 31st at 8 PM local time.

Johto Celebration Event - Exclusive Moves

The following Pokemon will learn an exclusive move if evolved during the Johto Celebration event:

  • Meganium - Frenzy Plant
  • Typhlosion - Blast Burn
  • Ampharos - Dragon Pulse
  • Tyranitar - Smack Down

The Dragon Pulse Ampharos is particularly relevant due to the recent addition of Mega Ampharos, which is an Electric/Dragon-type Pokemon. Mega Ampharos gains a same type attack bonus when it uses Dragon Pulse, giving it a bit of extra power.
