Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Coming Soon
Pokémon GO is returning to its roots with the upcoming Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto event which will bring all of the original 151 Pokémon to the forefront of the mobile game. Fans of Pokémon GO will be greeted by two versions of the Tour akin to the original choice between Red/Green and Red/Blue. Pokémon GO is available for free right now on iOS and Android, while Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto starts on Saturday, February 20th.
Pokémon GO gamers have been given the choice between a Red version and a Green version of Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto, each offering its own exclusive content. The Red version has access to exclusive Pokémon such as Ekans, Oddish, Mankey, Growlithe, Scyther, and Electabuzz, while the Green version has access to Sandshrew, Vulpix, Meowth, Bellsprout, Magmar, and Pinsir. Both versions will lean on incense to increase these spawn rates, while other Kanto Pokémon will sprout from the ground at an increased pace compared to non-ticket holders.
Just like Pokémon GO Fest 2020, Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto places a heavy emphasis on shiny Pokémon, with each version also having specific exclusives. The Red version offers Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pidgey, Ekans, Pikachu, Nidoran, Oddish, Diglett, Mankey, Growlithe, Ponyta, Shellder, Drowzee, Krabby, Hitmonlee, Lickitung, Scyther, Electabuzz, Eevee, Kabuto, and Dratini; while the Green version offers Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pidgey, Pikachu, Sandshrew, Nidoran, Vulpix, Meowth, Psyduck, Bellsprout, Geodude, Exeggcute, Hitmonchan, Koffing, Tangela, Horsea, Magmar, Pinsir, Eevee, Omanyte, and Dratini.
