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 four events that revolved around the Kanto-region Pokémon in particular, the other ones are:
