New year, new me, am I right? Well, I haven’t gone to the gym yet nor have I changed my unhealthy eating habits, but Niantic is participating in at least one new year resolution by giving us an extra special Hoenn-focused event for Pokemon GO players.
Starting on Jan 15 (tomorrow) at 1 p.m. PST and going until Jan 29 at 1 p.m. PST, Pokemon originally found in the Hoenn region will appear more frequently in the wild. You might have a better chance of encountering some cool pocket monsters such as Numel, Absol, Torchic, and Roselia – just to name a few.
Niantic is also including some neat little bonuses to go along with the Gen 3 event as well, which are listed down below:
- Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will have an increased chance of hatching from 7 km Eggs.
- If you evolve Shroomish into Breloom, it will know the exclusive move Grass Knot!
- You’ll have a chance of encountering Shiny Zigzagoon and Shiny Taillow!
- New avatar items inspired by Team Magma and Team Aqua—the original villains of the Hoenn region in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire—will be available in the Style Shop.
If you need any help on your Pokemon GO adventure, just remember that we do have a pretty expansive wiki guide on the game right here; it is chockfull of useful information that will help out any trainer far and wide.
