Hoenn Celebration in 2018 was the first Hoenn Celebration event in Pokémon GO.


To celebrate the recent addition of Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, only Pokémon from the Hoenn region were spawning in the wild. Alongside several Flying- and Dragon-type Pokémon appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time, the Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza became available in Raid Battles until March 16th. Additionally, Lure Modules will remain activate for six hours. [1]

  • During this event, Kyogre stopped being available as a Legendary Raid Boss on February 14th and Rayquaza started to be available as new Legendary Raid Boss from February 9th to March 16th, 2018. [1]
  • During this event, non-Hoenn region-exclusive Pokémon were still spawning in the wild, so tourists could catch them, if they happened to be in any other region with exclusive Pokémon even during the event.
  • Just like with previous event, this event hasn't got an official name as creators didn't give it anywhere when it was announced.
