Pokémon Air Adventures global collaboration event coming in May
After the global travel situation caused us to reschedule last year’s Pokémon Air Adventures collaboration event we’re happy to announce that it will be taking place this year, along with a collaboration event for all Trainers around the world, this May!
Wild Pokémon encounters in Okinawa
Beginning March 19, 2022
Pikachu wearing an Okinawa kariyushi shirt will be appearing in the wild in Okinawa! This special Pikachu will be appearing starting on Saturday, March 19, 2022, and will be available for over a year!
Along with Pikachu wearing an Okinawa kariyushi shirt, keep an eye out for Corsola! In Japan, Corsola can be found only in some areas, including Okinawa.
Special Pokémon Air Adventures PokéStops
In Okinawa, Trainers will be able to discover new PokéStops at Poké Lids (special Pokémon-themed maintenance-hole covers) and various Okinawan tourist sites. Gifts at these PokéStops will include in-game Postcard illustrations not available anywhere else, so make sure to visit as many of them as you can!
