Pokemon GO Japan Announced A Special Event On April 11th

Following the email announcement by Niantic and the series of leaked shiny Pokemon, Pokemon GO Japan has officially announced a special event on April 11 to April 17 featuring the spawn rate increase of all Pokemon from the Kanto region.

During the event, Pokemon GO fans will frequently encounter more Generation 1 Pokemon like Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle and more. The special event will also grant a double Candy for catching and transferring a Pokemon.

In addition, the event will also bring new Raid bosses from the Kanto region, these are Snorlax and Aerodactyl. There will also be gift boxes that will be available on the in-game shop that will contain a Premium Raid Pass.

While there is no announcement about the appearance of the recently discovered Shiny forms of Generation 1 and 2 Pokemon during this event, there’s still a high chance that Niantic may release it.

That’s all for now folks. Make sure to like our page Pokemon GO Informer to keep you update on the latest Pokemon GO news and updates!
