Passimian, a new addition to Pokémon GO, will add a fresh dimension to battles, introducing new tactics and strategies for trainers. There will also be a new costumed Pokémon, World Championships 2023 Pikachu.
A unique opportunity awaits trainers as Shiny Scraggy will appear more frequently in the wild for the first time in Pokémon GO, allowing players to add this rare Pokémon to their collection. Scraggy will also appear in one-star Raids, so make sure to defeat it and catch its Shiny form.
