Pokémon GO’s Kanto Event Starts in a Matter of Hours

It’s official!  After my speculation the Kanto event begins later today, in just a few short hours.  Here’s the official announcement.

Trainers,

The appearance of the Mythical Pokémon Mew has attracted Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Kanto region. These classic Pokémon will be seen more frequently starting April 10 at 1 P.M. PDT, so you’ll have the perfect opportunity to earn a gold Kanto medal and even complete your Kanto Pokédex!

What’s more, certain Pokémon such as Aerodactyl and Snorlax will be featured in Raid Battles across the world. Keep an eye out for one you haven’t encountered yet!

As you encounter and catch more Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region, all actions will be rewarded with double Candy. So, not only will you be able to catch Pokémon you might not frequently see, but you may also get the chance to register their evolved forms in your Pokédex as well.

During this event, there will also be special boxes containing Raid Passes! These boxes will give you an opportunity to challenge many powerful Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region.

This special celebration ends on April 17, so get out there and make some more discoveries. If all goes well, you may be able to finish your first Special Research request and encounter Mew!

It’s not quite the shiny extravaganza everyone was hoping for but the double candy will be enough to get me to transfer several hundred rare Pokémon and clear out some slots for Sunday’s Community Day Event.  I may also be rewarded with double candy if I’m fortunate enough to catch Mewtwo on Saturday.

We may still get surprised with shinies.  An interesting theory I’ve seen is that they’ve released all the shiny sprites just so they can surprise people instead of everyone always being able to predict what’s coming next.

Honestly I’d be happy to finally find a shiny Magikarp at this point.  Shinies are rare enough that I have a lot more hunting to do before I even collect half of the currently available ones in the game.

Who knows?  Shiny Pidgey may be mere hours away.

  3. Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed
    to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?

    I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a
    daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions
    or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  4. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this
    onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I discovered it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for
    the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this
    topic here on your internet site.

  5. I think that what you posted made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., but what if you added
    a title to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean Pokémon GO’s Kanto Event Starts in a Matter of Hours is
    a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article
    headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a
    related video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  8. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  9. Hi there! This blog post could not be written much better!
    Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I am going to forward this information to him.

  10. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is
    something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.
