Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Event Tickets

Red and green versionRed and green version

Since 1996, “Which version will you get?” has been an important question for Pokémon fans. Similar to the original game series, Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto will feature different versions of the ticketed experience, each featuring version-exclusive Pokémon.

To collect the first 150 Pokémon originally discovered in Kanto, you will need to trade with friends who have the other version of the event. To help with this, the commercial range will be increased to 40km during the event week!

Version exclusive Pokémon will be drawn to Incense during event hours. Additionally, you will have a higher chance of encountering certain Shiny Pokémon depending on the version you choose, as described below.

Once you choose your event version, you won’t be able to change it, so choose carefully! Keep in mind that you will be choosing your version closer to the event date, so don’t worry about choosing now.
