Kanto Celebration was an event in Pokémon GO that was dedicated for Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region.

Features

Kanto Gold

Kanto medal

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

Pokémon such as Aerodactyl and Snorlax were featured in Raid Battles across the world. Trainers were rewarded with double Candy for all actions that typically reward Candy.[1]

Although they were unannounced, Lure Modules had been reported to last six hours and buddy distance had been halved; during the duration of the event.

Trivia

  • It was the second event to feature temporal changes of Raid Bosses. The first one was Pokémon GO Park in Yokohama, Japan.
    • It was the first to feature this worldwide.
  • Between April 7th and 10th, players started noticing that 2D sprites of Kanto- and Johto-region Pokémon had changed, thus they started speculating that during this event some or even more of shiny variants of these Kanto Pokémon might be released. [4]
    • Moreover, Reddit user u/Chrales through the data-mining found and revealed that in fact plenty of 2D sprites for shiny variants of Kanto- and Johto-region Pokémon had been added to the game server. However none of these Shiny Pokémon had their in-game 3D models added. [5]
    • Despite all of these 2D sprites of Shiny Pokémon being added to the game, none of Pokémon had their shiny variant released during this event.
  • It is one of three events that revolved around the Kanto-region Pokémon in particular, the other ones are Ultra Bonus Event and Let's Go Celebration.
