Celebrate Carnival from home with Pokémon GO!

Trainers, Every year during this season, people in different regions of the world gather to celebrate Carnival. These celebrations are some of the largest and most famous street parties in the world, which originated centuries ago in Europe and are extremely popular today in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially in Brazil.

In 2021 we won't be able to celebrate Carnival in the streets in the same way we were used to. But that doesn't mean we won't be able to celebrate in the company of our Pokémon companions and connect virtually with our family and friends. That's why, we're excited to introduce the first Carnival celebration in Pokémon GO!

Features
  • Pokémon that represent the festive spirit of Carnival and some of its traditions, such as music and happiness, will be most frequently attracted to Incense, including Diglett, Jigglypuff, Hitmontop, Torchic, Lotad, Kricketot, Bronzor, Munna, and Emolga.
  • With any luck, you might find a Shiny Jigglypuff!
  • During this event, the duration of the Incense will be three hours.
Hours for Raiding and more
  • On February 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time, a Raid Hour will take place with Kricketot as the featured Pokémon. If you're lucky, you might find a varicolored one!
  • On February 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time, don't let the party die with a Raid Hour featuring Emolga, the Flappy Pokémon!
  • During the event, visit the store to find a one-time redeemable free item pack that includes 50 Poké Balls, 2 Incense, 10 Razz Berries and a Remote Raid Pass!
We hope Trainers enjoy this special celebration, and we look forward to enjoying Carnival at home and virtually with our friends, family and Pokémon. Even though we may not all be able to physically celebrate together, we believe this adventure will keep us connected and united!

As always, pay attention to your surroundings and comply with local health authority regulations when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

In the ticketed version of this event, you’ll choose between the Red Version or Green Version of the event experience, each featuring version-exclusive Pokémon.

At the end of the Special Research, you’ll encounter a Shiny Ditto!

After completing the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Special Research, you’ll unlock a new kind of research called Masterwork Research, which will take determination and skill to complete. Just completing the first page will require that you receive your platinum Kanto medal. From there, you’ll have to reach level 40, catch 30 Pokémon of each type, spin 151 unique PokéStops, walk 151 km, and more—an incredibly special encounter with Shiny Mew lies at the end of this adventure!

Ten Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Collection Challenges to enjoy
You’ll be able to complete 10 Collection Challenges during Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto! Half of these collections are based on how you’ll find and collect the Pokémon during the event.
  • Red (Trade) or Red (Incense)
  • Green (Trade) or Green (Incense)
  • Raid
  • Research
  • Evolve
How you complete the Red and Green Collection Challenges will depend on your version. For example, if you’re playing the Red Version, all Pokémon in the Red Collection Challenge will be attracted to Incense during the event, but you’ll need to trade with a friend in order to complete the Green Collection Challenge. The other Collection Challenges are inspired by locations from the original games!
  • Pallet Town

Each location’s hour block will happen twice during the event. The last two hours of the event will include all Pokémon from the prior hours—this will be a great chance to look for any Pokémon you missed earlier in the day! All times are local time.
