Pokemon Go Launches Kanto Celebration Event

Pokemon GO NEWS Shiny event coming to the game following new Gen 1 leak

Pokemon Go was also recently updated with a new quest system that puts players on the path to finally capturing a Mew, which requires you to have a Gold Kanto Badge in your inventory.

Some Trainers are hoping to see some unusual Pokemon this week, while others believes Niantic will be saving their best for another time.

April will be a big month for the mobile game, with Niantic continuing to add more and more content to the game ahead of the planned Community Day towards the middle of the month.

And, of course, there will be new event boxes available for purchase. This requires you to register 100 Kanto Pokemon in your Pokedex, so the event that's going on now should go a long way toward making this dream a reality. The features include increased spawns of classic characters, including the ever-popular three starters: Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. Also Snorlax and Aerodactyl will be in raid rotation for the period. Special Boxes will also go on sale including bundles on Premium Raid Passes.

Pokemon GO Kanto Week starts today, runs through April 16
Pokemon Go Getting a Kanto Themed Event Tomorrow

Even if no Shiny reports come in today, Niantic could always release them throughout the event, like they have done with past celebrations.

A look at some of the possible Pokemon who could headline the April Community Day.

"But I doubt it now, seeing as not all of the kanto shinies were added and a bunch of gen 2 was added at the same time". (Not sure if there will be more Kanto themed raids, as they are hinted on an announcement by the Pokemon website as well, nor if any of them will feature a shiny).
