The Sinnoh region appreciation event is now live!

Pokémon GO


In appreciation of all the great Pokémon that we’ve befriended that were originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, we’re happy to announce a Sinnoh region celebration event! From Friday, February 7, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Monday, February 10, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time, Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region will be appearing more often in the wild and in raids.

All 7 km Eggs obtained during the event period will exclusively hatch certain Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, including Budew, Combee, Bronzor, Gible, Riolu, Hippopotas, and Mantyke. Event-specific Field Research tasks will reward you with encounters with Pokémon that were originally discovered in this beautiful region, as well as Sinnoh Stones. And last but not least, if you’re lucky, you might hatch a Shiny Riolu or a Shiny Hippopotas!

Glacial, Magnetic, and Mossy Lure Modules activated during this event will last one hour, and each time you open a Gift, you could receive up to two 7 km Eggs as long as you have space in your inventory.

It’s been an amazing year of discovering Pokémon that Trainers first found in Sinnoh! This weekend, let’s give the region the celebration it deserves. Be sure to follow us on social media, opt in to receive push notifications, and subscribe to our emails to stay updated. Let’s GO!
