Fans of Pokémon Journeys: The Series and Pokémon GO
are in for a treat as the Pokémon worlds of animation and mobile gaming collide
in a crossover event. From Friday, November 6, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Thursday, November 12, 2020, at
10:00 p.m. local time, Trainers
can encounter Pokémon Ash and Goh have caught, rescued, trained, and interacted
with in the animated series. Ivysaur, Pinsir, Snorlax, and Golurk will be
appearing in raids, while Bulbasaur, Exeggcute, Cubone, Scyther, Dratini, and Cyndaquil
will be appearing more frequently in the wild.
Who could forget the epic moment when Ash and Goh caught a ride
on Lugia, solidifying their friendship, in the episode “Legend?
Go! Friends? Go!” from the latest season of Pokémon the Series? In
tribute to that moment, Trainers can challenge Lugia that know Aeroblast in five-star
raids during the event. Trainers can also expect to see more Riolu hatching
from Eggs as a nod to “Caring
for a Mystery!”, which featured a Riolu hatching from an Egg. Trainers can
go on their very own journey mirroring Ash and Goh’s adventures with Timed
Research featuring Pokémon the two friends have met along the way. Field
Research will also feature encounters with Pokémon from across the animated
During this event, World Cap Pikachu will be appearing in
the wild. Plus, Goh-inspired avatar items will be available in the Style Shop at
no cost, and Goh may make a surprise appearance in your snapshots.
If you haven’t yet watched Pokémon Journeys: The Series,
you can see the first episode on Pokémon
TV at no cost. The first 24 episodes are
also currently available on Netflix.
