Hello Trainers! Recently, we have gotten a more accurate look at the imminent Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto event, and we must say, those $12 are worth it all. First and foremost, we must mention that you have until Saturday, February 20th, 2021, 7:00 p.m. local time to choose Green or Red.
Let’s dive into the details of the event. The first thing that you will have to complete is the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Special Research and get that Shiny Ditto (new Shiny alert!). After that step is completed, the hard work will come, the Masterwork Research.
✨ Oh? What’s this?

To accomplish this special Masterwork Research, besides patience and determination, you will need to receive your platinum Kanto medal, reach level 40, catch 30 Pokemon of each existing type in the game, and spin 151 unique Pokestops. But that is not all, you will need to walk 151km too. But the end of this Research will make your eyes twinkle, a Shiny Mew!
The ones who love the new Collection Challenges, well, this event is created just for you! You will be given the unique chance of completing not one, not two, but ten Collection Challenges during the event. The first half of the collection will be based on how you find and collect the Pokemon. The names of these Collection Challenges are the following: Red (Trade) or Red (Incense), Green (Trade) or Green (Incense), Raid, Research and Evolve. As you already know, you will need to collect Pokemon from both versions, Red and Green. Keep in mind that hatching Pokemon and rescuing them from Team GO Rocket will not be counted towards the completion of the Challenges.
As for the other half of the Challenges, they will carry the name of the locations in the original games: Pallet Town, Pewter City, Cerulean City, Fuchsia City, and Pokémon League. You will have eight days (until Sunday, February 28th, 2021, at 7:59 p.m. local time) to complete all ten Collection Challenge.
To make it even more interesting, Niantic chose to divide the last 5 Collection Challenges into five different location-themed hour blocks. This means that each City will have its dedicated hour, in which the corresponding Collection Challenge Pokemon will be appearing more frequently. Each City’s hour block will occur twice during the whole event. If you did not happen to catch some Pokemon during the designated time table, you can take advantage of the last two hours of the event, where every Pokemon from the Collection Challenge will be emerging at the same time. It is worth mentioning that each hour will feature different music (inspired by the original game) composed by Junichi Masuda.
Take a look at the time-table:
- 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.: Pallet Town
- 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.: Pewter City
- 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.: Cerulean City
- 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.: Fuchsia City
