New Outfit Alert

A brand new outfit is coming to the Style Shop for all Trainers on April 17!

  • Experience a new look in Pokémon GO with refreshed visuals that adapt to your real-world surroundings and seasons.
  • Visual changes include the inclusion of buildings, hills, mountains, and enhanced environmental elements.
  • Visual updates can be seen on the in-game map, Pokémon encounter screen, and Trainer battle screen.
  • Visuals will now change depending on the biome a Trainer is in.
  • Biomes are different environments like forests, beaches, mountains, and cities, which you can see here. Work together with other Trainers to find out what other biomes are in the world of Pokémon GO!

Check out our Help Center article to learn more about our in-game map.

Biomes not only impact appearance, but also the Pokémon that will appear in that environment. Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will appear in specific biomes, although they have been known to appear outside of these biomes during certain Pokémon GO Seasons or special events. Keep an eye on these biomes to see what other Pokémon may appear there!

The forest biome is home to Pokémon first discovered in Kanto such as Bulbasaur, Caterpie, Weedle, Oddish, and more.

The beach biome is home to Squirtle, Psyduck, Seel, Magikarp, and more.

The mountain biome is home to Sandshrew, Clefairy, Zubat, Diglett, and more.

The city biome is home to Caterpie, Pidgey, Machop, Gastly, and more.*

There are a number of other biomes for Trainers to discover, and we look forward to seeing what Pokémon you will find!

* Towns and other populated areas are included in the city biome.

Check out our Help Center article to learn more about discovering Pokémon in biomes.
