Trivia

  • Claiming Kanto Starters from research tasks gave party hat forms.[3][4] However, the tasks were removed soon after the event started.[5]
  • Evolving the Kanto Starters to their final forms did not learn exclusive moves.[6]
    • However, evolving Haunter to Gengar could learn Lick and Psychic.
  • Nidorino and Gengar Raid Day was canceled in Japan, South Korea and Italy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[7]
