For those who plan to attend the Pokémon Go Tour: Johto event, they will have the opportunity to play with friends in person at specific events after the holidays with activities for the Kanto region. Events will take place in Monterrey, Mexico at Fundidora Park and Kaohsiung, Taiwan at the Taiwan Lantern Festival.
Players participating in these events will need to obtain a ticket and must be there in person. Those who attend the event will receive an exclusive Pokémon Go Tour: Live private research task that they can complete, receiving a Mewtwo as a reward. There will be additional shiny Pokémon and shiny Ditto for players to encounter, as well as Snorlax following players around as his friend.
Outside of the event, Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros will appear in town. Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres will also make special appearances as five-star raids that players can complete in the local area during the event.
The Kanto celebration event for these locations will take place on February 27 from 10am to 6pm in their local time zones. Players will want to make sure to reserve their ticket early to ensure they can get into the event before it fills up.
