Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto — Which version will you choose?

Pokémon Go’s biggest event to date, the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto is almost here and trainers can now officially choose their version. As previously announced, this event will allow Trainers to choose a version, either red or green, and the version they select will have a specific Shiny Pokemon, as well as an exclusive Pokemon version that can be lured with incense. In order to meet the challenge of catching the 150 Kanto Pokémon and thus win an encounter with a Shiny Mew, each Trainer will have to coordinate with a Trainer with the opposing version, just like in the basic games.
