In 2020, you can look forward to even more events in more locations! We’re pleased to announce the first live events of the year.

Pokémon light up a special event during the Taiwan Lantern Festival in Taichung City
Get ready to be dazzled by lanterns, music, and Pokémon alike! This special non-ticketed, city-wide event will take place during the Taiwan Lantern Festival in Taichung City, Taiwan, from Thursday, February 6, to Sunday, February 9, 2020.
Pokémon that will be appearing include the Electric-type Pokémon Mareep and Electrike. Volbeat, a Bug-type Pokémon known for illuminating the skies, will be appearing throughout the city alongside Illumise, a Bug-type Pokémon that guides Volbeat to draw light patterns. Illumise is typically available only in North America, South America, and Africa, so locals might want to catch one while they have the chance! Catch an Unown L to celebrate the light-themed event, and enjoy the lovely sounds of Chimecho, the Wind Chime Pokémon.
