Pokémon GO begins the year with another of the pre-Tour Pokémon GO events: Kanto and this time it’s Unova’s turn —Unova in other countries—, the region where the deliveries of the fifth generation of the video game saga took place.
The event It has started this Tuesday, January 5 and will be extended until next Sunday, the 10th at 20:00 (local time), during which time the Pokémon in this region will appear more frequently, thus giving players a great opportunity to add new creatures to their collection.
Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Lillipup, Herdier, Blitzle, Roggenrola, Drilbur, Scraggy, Tympole, Venipede, Trubbish, Gothita, Solosis y Ferroseed They will be the ones that appear more frequently in the wild, being the first of them the one that can be captured in a shiny way if you have any luck.
Roggenrola, Sewaddle, Petilil, Emolga, Karrablast, Joltik, Elgyem and Shelmet will enter the eggs of five and in the field research tasks will be the three initials – Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott – and Ferroseed, while in the one-star raids they will be accompanied by Timburr, Dwebble and Klink. Herdier, Tranquill, Excadrill and Amoonguss, meanwhile, will appear in the three-star raids.
In the five stars, for its part, it will appear Genesect with the PiroROM. It is a cartridge that can be equipped in video games and that allows this Pokémon to convert its characteristic movement to the Fire type, in addition to being reflected on the screen, but in Pokémon GO it is the first time that it will be available.
But the really interesting thing about this event is in the ‘Today’ tab, since they have decided to leave behind the line of research to launch the first Collection Challenge. Trainers will be asked to hunt down a number of Unova Pokémon: Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Lilipup, Herdier, Blitzle, Roggenrola, Solosis, and Ferroseed.
This Challenge will be available until the event ends and If completed, it will add a new badge to your collection: the Elite Pokécollector. It will also give rewards within the game, although its main use is to be a guide to capture the event.
