The announced locations and dates for the Road Trip are as follows:
October 6th: - 4 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco
October 13th: - Westlake Park, Seattle
October 20th: - Dallas, Texas
October 27th: - Topeka, Kansas

The surprise Road Trip event will feature Pikachu and Eevee traveling across the United States in customized trucks. The trucks turn into actual play test areas, as seen in the images below:

There's also photo op opportunities with both Pikachu and Eevee, as super-sized versions of the Pokemon mascots are also traveling around the country as part of the Road Trip event.
The new Pokemon games are loose remakes of Pokemon Yellow and are set in the Kanto region. However, players will note some major changes to the game, including a new catch system that's very similar to Pokemon Go and simplified game mechanics that remove popular features like abilities and held items. While the game looks stunning, some Pokemon fans aren't thrilled by what they see is a simplification of the franchise, even though The Pokemon Company has already announced a more traditional Pokemon game for 2019.
