Due to recent developments, we will be postponing the Pokémon Air Adventures collaboration that was scheduled to begin on Thursday, July 22, 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We will share more information once details are finalized.
The Pokémon Company has launched Pokémon Air Adventures, an initiative started in Japan that helps create wonderful travel memories. To celebrate, in Okinawa, Japan, a special Pikachu wearing an Okinawan kariyushi shirt will be appearing in Pokémon GO starting July 22!
This Pikachu will be appearing for over a year, so if you are able to travel and get the chance to visit Okinawa, you can try looking for one!
Just like with the Pikachu wearing a kariyushi shirt, we’re looking to introduce more costumed Pokémon that are available only in certain regions of the world, so please keep an eye out for more news!
Shiny Corsola will also be appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time starting July 22!
Corsola can be encountered only in certain regions. If you're lucky, you might soon find a Shiny Corsola! There is no time limit planned for this appearance, so when you're able to travel to a region where Corsola appears in the wild, you can venture out to search for a Shiny one!
Pokémon Air Adventures is an initiative that helps create wonderful travel memories. We hope that when people can travel, Pokémon Air Adventures can be an opportunity to help them enjoy traveling even more.
