Pokémon from the Hoenn Region began to debut in Pokémon GO in October of 2017. Now, three more generations have been added to the game (in part, at least) and many Shinies from Hoenn have been released. Let's take a look at the remaining Hoenn Shinies that have yet to be released in Pokémon GO.
If you are level 40 or above, you already know about the new type of Candy called XL Candy.
This type of Candy was introduced in the game with the GO Beyond update in Pokemon GO, and it allows Trainers to power up their Pokemon beyond level 40. Only Trainers that have reached level 40 can start using this type of Candy. You are wondering how to get the XL Candy? Well, start catching Pokemon.
Unfortunately, unlike the regular Candy, the Pinap Berries do not have any effect on the amount you get from catching a Pocket Monster, only the level of it decides that. The higher level of the Pokemon, the more XL Candy you will get.
There is also another way of getting XL Candy, and that is by converting the Regular Candy into an XL Candy. The transfer rate is 100 Regular Candy for one XL Candy. There is also XL Rare Candy that works the same way as the Regular Rare Candy.
You can also get them from raiding, trading, hatching, or transferring a Pokemon. Well, that’s not where it all ends, because Niantic and Pokemon Go announced new ways on how can one collect XL Candy. You soon will be able to collect XL Candy when walking with your Buddy and catching Legendary, Mythical, or evolved Pokemon is now guaranteed to reward you with XL Candy. Sounds great, right?
Pokemon GO held the first-ever Kanto Tour event, and anyone who purchased a ticket had to choose either the Red Version or the Green Version.
Each section of the Pokemon GO Kanto tour collection was split to organize separate categories. There are categories for things like Pallet Town, Pewter City, Raids and, of course, versions. Eight different Pokemon have to be caught in order to complete each collection, aside from the evolutions section which requires the completion of all Kanto evolutions.
There are also the Red Version and Green Version collections. Every player that purchased the Pokemon GO Kanto Tour ticket has both collections available to complete, regardless of the version that they chose. While players may not be able to find the opposite version's Pokemon in the wild, they can still trade in order to complete the collection.
Choosing a version means that six distinct Pokemon will appear when using an incense item. The list of Pokemon for Red and Green changes and is currently as follows:
Red Version Pokemon in Pokemon GO
Green Version Pokemon in Pokemon GO
Once players have collected all six of their Version Pokemon, the best bet is to find a friend who has the Green Version of the Kanto Tour ticket. Players will then need to trade with them in order to acquire all the opposite Version Pokemon. There really is no other way to complete that part of the collection event.
The collection event in the Pokemon GO Kanto Tour
As fun as the collection event is, collecting all the Pokemon for the different categories is quite the task. In total, players need to end up with all 151 Pokemon from the Kanto region to complete the collections.
All of them were available on February 20 at different hours. That would have been the best time to complete all the collections, but many players may have missed some of the events. In that case, there is still the rest of this week to collect any of the missing Pokemon.
The evolutions collection will be the most time-consuming, especially for Pokemon that are evolved from the opposite Version of the Kanto Tour. It'll take some luck to catch them all in Kanto.
As part of the Kanto Celebration event, the Mega Evolved starters have returned to raids. Let's take a look at the top counters to help trainers take down Mega Charizard Y a dual Fire/Flying-type, which can be encountered in its Shiny form. With this Raid Guide, you can prepare a team, perfect your catching strategy, and understand Charizard's 100% IVs.
Top Mega Charizard Y Counters
Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top 10 Mega Charizard Y counters as such
It is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, but creating that amount of strong Shadow or Mega Pokémon with their moves unlocked is a tall order for even the most practiced players. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help take down Mega Charizard Y with efficiency.
How Many Trainers Are Needed?
Mega Charizard Y can be defeated with two trainers due to its double weakness to Rock-types, but if you cannot guarantee the top counters with maxed out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have three or four players.
Using the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws, along with Golden Razz Berries, is the best way to catch Charizard. Even though it will return to its standard form before the catch screen, it can be a difficult catch without the proper berry and throw.
Shiny Odds & 100% IVs
The Shiny rate for Mega Raid Pokémon is approximately one in sixty. When looking for a Pokémon with the best stats, the 100% IV Charizard will have a CP of 1651 in normal weather conditions and 2064 in boosted conditions.
Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
Niantic made Pokémon history with Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto. Did this remote event go beyond nostalgia and live up to the hype? Let's dive into the details with this comprehensive review.
What Worked in this Pokémon GO Event
What Didn't Work in this Pokémon GO Event
Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto exceeded expectations in every way, making it far and away the best-ticketed event Niantic has ever held. If ticketed events are consistently like this and rather than December's Galarian Mr. Mime event, then I can whole-heartedly recommend buying all tickets going forward. Looking at this specific event, it was a fun and nuanced twelve hours of engaging gameplay for essentially the price of a movie ticket. As I now work on my Masterwork Research to earn a Shiny Mew encounter, I am still, even after the event has ended, enjoying what I paid for.
The Valentine's Day 2021 event ends tonight in Pokémon GO. Let's dive into this event to see what worked and what didn't work.

What Didn't Work in This Pokémon GO Event:
Overall, despite the rarity of Alomomola and Spinda, the Valentine's Day 2021 event was another win for Pokémon GO.
Bulbasaur is part of a Pokemon let’s go starter challenge. In this challenge, you need to catch Bulbasaur along with Charmander and Squirtle. Bulbasaur is also gifted to you as you progress in the game. In this post, we are going to have a closer look at how to catch Bulbasaur in Pokemon Go, what is Bulbasaur, Bulbasaur best moveset and more.
Bulbasaur is a starter Pokemon. It is a Grass, Poison-type Pokémon from the Kanto region. It evolves into Ivysaur when fed 25 candies and its final evolution is Venusaur. It is week to fire, ice, flying, and psychic moves. In the upcoming section, we are going to look at how to catch Bulbasaur in Pokemon Go.
How to catch Bulbasaur in Pokemon Go?
Bulbasaur is available to be caught in the wild. If you want to catch Bulbasaur, go to a place where there is thick forests or parks. They can rarely be found in Pokestops. To catch a Bulbasaur, simply search for the nests where you can find 2KM eggs. Once you find a nest, grab a 2KM egg and Hatch it. after you complete hatching, you'll be able to get a Bulbasaur. Please remember this. nests are places where you can find Bulbasaur 2KM eggs.
There is 1/14 chance of you finding and catching a Bulbasaur in a Pokestop. So, always look for a Bulbasaur in thick forests and nearby parks. Many players reported that they have found and caught their first Bulbasaur generally in smallish parks. There is a specific reason why Bulbasaur is very hard to catch. A critical thing is that Bulbasaur is the first Gen Pokemon. Many Pokemon types have moved on to the second Gen, and even some of them reached sixth Gen. But in the case of Bulbasaur, it’s still stuck in the first Gen and the updated version of the Bulbasaur isn’t going to arrive anytime soon. So, we leave the choice with you. If you really want to catch Bulbasaur, then go for it!. And if you are able to catch one, then you can be sure that you are a very good player!
We hope that we've given you a clear overview of how to catch Bulbasaur in Pokemon Go. It is a pretty simple task to complete. kindly remember that you have to build a catch combo or several of them to catch Bulbasaur in Pokemon Go and add it to your Pokedex. Although your chances of catching one is pretty less, you can use the above-mentioned steps to complete this activity successfully. All the very best!
Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto event is Niantic’s own way of celebrating the first Pokemon Region discovered, and they made sure to make the event the most interesting event in the history of Pokemon GO.
As you know, the price of the ticket is $11.99, and you have the option to choose between a Red and Green version. It will involve Raids, trading, bonuses, Special Research stories, shiny Pokemon encounters, and much more. So we couldn’t help but wonder, how much is a player willing to spend outside of those $11.99 for the ticket?
Some people have already thought about this and decided to create a poll on the official TSR Reddit.
The poll shows that the majority of the players (over 350 votes) will not spend anything, but more than 40 people will spend $51-$100, excluding the price of the ticket. Others say they will spend a few $ for some extra Raids and more than 160 players will spend $10-$50.
We have to remind you that the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto will begin on February 20th, 2021.
It's Valentine's Day, meaning that players in Pokemon GO can participate in the game's event for the holiday. This event includes multiple exclusive field research tasks, increased spawn rates of certain Pokemon, and plenty of prizes to earn.
The Pokemon GO Valentine's Day event will be running from February 14 at 1:00 PM to February 18 at 8:00 PM in players' local times. Players can obtain the various event-exclusive field research tasks by spinning PokeStops during the event's active times.
Fitting with the holiday, many of the research tasks are themed around Valentine's Day itself. This means that there are tasks requiring players to give gifts and catch certain a heart-shaped Pokemon.
There is a total of six different field research tasks that players can pick up from PokeStops during the Valentine's Day event. Each Pokemon encounter that serves as a reward for these research tasks has a chance to be shiny thanks to the new addition of shiny Alomomola. This means that players are recommended to complete as many of these tasks as they can if they are looking to hunt for shiny Pokemon.
The six field research tasks are:
Each of these tasks has the potential to be incredibly helpful to many players. This can be due to just helping players fill out their Pokedex, giving the player helpful items, or getting players a special shiny encounter. Ralts especially can help players thanks to any Kirlia evolved during this event learning the event exclusive move Synchronoise as either a Gardevoir or Gallade.
Another important thing to keep in mind with these field research tasks is how they can be a big help for this event's collection challenge. Volbeat, Illumise, and Alomomola are among the Pokemon required for this challenge, making these tasks very helpful for those looking to complete it. In addition to this, while Volbeat and Illumise are among the increased spawn rates in the wild, Alomomola is not. This means that players wanting to catch one will need to either complete one of the research tasks offering its encounter as a prize or find one as a raid boss somewhere in their area.
The next Pokémon GO event has been announced. This new Team GO Rocket event will introduce new Shadow Pokémon and Poison-type and Dark-type Pokémon featured during the event.
Here are the full details for the February 2021 Team GO Rocket event in Pokémon GO:
Now, here's a bit from Niantic that we're not sure about.
Event-exclusive Field Research and Timed Research will be available.
The Team GO Rocket–themed Timed Research that begins during the Johto Celebration event will continue during this event and will reward an encounter with the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh that knows the exclusive attack Earthquake!
The "Event-exclusive Timed Research" and the continuing Timed Research from the Johto event are treated as two separate points. This could either be unclear communication from Niantic or it could mean that we're going to also have a Giovanni-centric Research. I honestly lean toward the former, but we will see!
