Pokémon GO continues its tradition of recurring events, and the current one that started on February 18 is still going on. It features lots of extras and exclusives for long-time fans who would like to go out for a hunt these days. What’s on the list? New species, many Pokéballs, some Shinies, and, as an icing on the cake, exclusive designs with Pokéballs in their bodies!
Let’s start with the most noticeable appearance this week. The mysterious Ball Guy who was spotted at the Galar Pokemon League once now is in Pokémon Go. Who is he? Well, it can be you if you equip his costume with the ball instead of the head. The outfit is available at the shop from the beginning of the event (February 18, 10AM local time).
During this event, you’ll have a chance to encounter Voltorm, Koffing, Marill, Wailmer, Solosis, Foongus, Jigglypuff, Galarian Stunfisk, and other Pokémon that aren’t that familiar. They can evolve. For example, the already introduced Hisuian Voltorm will be able to evolve into Hisuian Electrode, an Electric-type Pokémon (which is logical). If you are into Shinies, this time the list of potential Shiny wildlings includes Jigglypuff, Voltorb, Koffing, and Electrode. You can also encounter Marill, Wailmer, and Galarian Stunfisk in their Shiny forms.
Haven’t got enough Pokéballs to catch’em all? No problem. The event has several Timed Researches that are rewarded with Pokéballs in excess, including Great Balls and Ultra Balls. They will last the whole week that ends on February 25, so if you still manage to run out of balls, you can replenish them at any time.
Are you already participating in this event? How do you like the Ball Guy appearance? Have you caught any of exclusive Pokémon, maybe some Shiny ones? If you have a story you want to tell us or just an achievement to brag about, welcome to our comments section! We will applaud!
