Pokemon Go Announces Pokemon Journeys Event

Pokemon Go has announced a new event celebrating Pokemon Journeys' move to a new timeslot in Japan. The popular mobile game has announced a new Animation Week event that will begin on November 6, 2020. The event will focus on Pokemon featured in Pokemon Journeys, including the re-appearance of Lugia with its exclusive move Aeroblast. Additionally, players can find Goh (the secondary protagonist of the show) in Snapshots and catch the new World Cap Pikachu, a Pikachu wearing the hat worn by Ash in the series.

Details about the event are below:

  • World Cap Pikachu will be appearing in the wild. Some lucky Trainers may even encounter a Shiny one!
  • From Thursday, November 5, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. to Monday, November 16, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8), Lugia will be returning to five-star raids—this time with the attack Aeroblast!
  • Pokemon like Ivysaur, Pinsir, Snorlax, Golurk, and others will be appearing in raids.
  • You can look forward to encountering the following Pokémon more frequently in the wild: Bulbasaur, Exeggcute, Cubone, Scyther, Dratini, Cyndaquil, and more! If you’re lucky, you may even encounter a Shiny Cubone! *Pichu, Mantyke, Riolu, and Cubone will be hatching from 7 km Eggs. Lucky Trainers may even hatch a Shiny Cubone!
  • Take on new Timed Research inspired by multiple episodes of the ongoing series Pokemon Journeys: The Series!
  • Goh might appear in GO Snapshot! Be sure to take a snapshot during the event!
