Johto medal

Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region were seen more frequently, so Trainers had the perfect opportunity to earn a gold Johto medal and complete their Johto Pokédex.

In the first few hours, Trainers around the world spotted the higher chance to encounter Unown in the wild.

These Shiny Pokémon were released at the start of the event:
