Niantic just announced a huge new paid event coming to Pokémon Go early next year, the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto. On Saturday, February 20, 2021, trainers will have 12 hours to catch each Pokémon in the Kanto region. Trainers able to catch the first 150 Pokémon in the Pokédex will win an encounter with Shiny Mew themselves. Tickets are on sale in the PokéShop for US $ 12 or your local equivalent, and players who buy early will receive Special Research Tickets for Community Days in January and February 2021.
During the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event, each Kanto Pokémon will have its Shiny version unlocked, with several species having seen increased Shiny rates. All four of the Legendary Pokémon from the Kanto region will return to Raids, including Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo. Most interesting of all about this event, the player will have to work together to complete the challenge of 150 species of Pokemon in one day. Trainers will choose the red or green version for their tickets, which will give them access to specific species of Pokémon that the other ticket won’t have access to, forcing trainers to swap with each other to complete.
