Pokémon Go celebrates Pokémon Day with new event, Smeargle now available
If you didn’t already know, February 27th is Pokémon Day – and that means there’s an event in Pokémon Go to celebrate it as well.
So from tomorrow, February 27th, 8 am AEDT there will be a number of different things happening in the game – boringly it’s another “Kanto” event but there are some new things to try and find as well.
Here’s the list;
- Pokémon that Trainers encounter early on in their adventures through the Kanto region will appear more frequently in the wild!
- Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will be available to challenge in raids.
- Pikachu and Eevee wearing flower crowns will make a special appearance as Field Research encounters and in the wild.
- In celebration of Pokémon Day, you may even encounter Shiny Pidgey and Shiny Rattata!
If that wasn’t exciting enough Smeargle has finally arrived in the game. To catch him you’ll have to take a bunch of photos using the new Go Snapshot mode. It took about 15 photos of different Pokemon for him to appear.
