Special Pokemon GO Event Starting April 10th Has Been Announced

Following the announcement of Pokemon GO Japan about the special event earlier today, Niantic has also made their official announcement of the Pokemon GO Special event starting April 10th at 1 P.M. PDT in celebration of Pokemon that were discovered in the Kanto region.

This new event has come because of the appearance of Mythical Pokémon Mew that attracted Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Kanto region. Below are the details of the Pokemon GO Special event:

Pokemon GO Event Features

  • Aerodactyl and Snorlax will be available in Raid battles
  • 2x Candy for any Generation 1 Pokemon that will be captured and transferred during the event
  • Special boxes that will include a Premium Raid Pass

While there is nothing mentioned about the recently discovered Generation 1 Shiny Pokemon, there’s still a chance that you might encounter the shiny forms of the Generation 1 Pokemon during the event.

This special celebration starts on April 10th at 1 P.M. PDT until April 17 at 1 P.M. PDT. It’s the perfect time to earn a gold Kanto medal and even finish the Pokemon GO Research quests.
