Pokemon Go will feature Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet starting September 5

Pokemon Go Introduces New Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet Regions

Niantic Labs, the developer behind the immensely popular mobile game Pokemon Go, has exciting news for players and enthusiasts. As of September 5, players can expect to encounter a wave of new Pokemon from the Paldea region, specifically those originally featured in the games Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

A Paldean Adventure: Unveiling the New Pokemon

From September 5 to 10, the virtual world of Pokemon Go will be enriched with the presence of Pokemon hailing from the Paldea region. Among these new additions, fans can anticipate encountering Pokemon creatures like Sprigatito (also known as Floragato and Meowscarada), Fuecoco (recognized as Crocalor and Skeledirge), Quaxly (alternatively known as Quaxwell and Quaquaval), and Lechonk.

These unique Pokemon will not only be part of the in-game environment but will also be available through special events and rewards. During this exciting phase, players might even catch a glimpse of the elusive shiny versions of these newly introduced creatures, adding an extra layer of thrill to their exploration.

Hatching from Eggs and Raiding for Unowns

Following the conclusion of the initial event, the fun continues. Players will have the chance to hatch some of these captivating creatures from eggs. Specifically, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly may hatch from 5km eggs, while Lechonk could emerge from 2km Eggs. Although the exact hatch rates remain a mystery, the anticipation and excitement are sure to keep players engaged.

Furthermore, as a gesture of gratitude for the active participation of players during the recent Pokemon Go Fest 2023, an Ultra Unlock bonus will come into play. This feature brings the enigmatic Unown letters A, D, E, L, and P into raids. For those with an affinity for shiny Pokemon, this bonus offers a chance to encounter a shiny version of Lechonk through Timed Research, provided the RNG (Random Number Generator) favors their luck.

Event Bonuses and Catching Frenzy

A plethora of event bonuses awaits players during this period. The phenomenon of Roaming Form Gimmighoul becomes a focal point of interest, especially around Golden PokeStops. The application of a Golden Lure Module brings forth Roaming Form Gimmighoul, and even without this module, players are encouraged to spin the PokeStops for potential Gimmighoul Coins. It’s important to note that PokeStops might spontaneously turn gold, without the need for a Golden Lure Module.

Boosted rewards during this period add to the excitement. Players can earn quadruple XP and Stardust for successful captures. Additionally, 7km eggs might hatch not only the new Paldean Pokemon but also Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly, and Lechonk. A special showcase event starring Lechonk is another highlight that promises appealing rewards to those who put forth their best efforts.

Shiny Hunting and Raiding for Great Rewards

Shiny Pokemon enthusiasts are in for a treat, as the event significantly increases the likelihood of encountering shiny versions of Hoppip, Houndour, Buizel, and Fletchling. These special Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild during this period, amplifying the thrill of shiny hunting.

Raid battles offer an excellent opportunity for players to team up and challenge powerful opponents. The raids are divided into different tiers, with Unown appearing in One-Star Raids, while Three-Star Raids feature formidable Pokemon like Machamp, Camerupt, Metagross, and Turtonator. For the ultimate challenge, Five-Star Raids from September 1 to 8 will showcase Kartana in the Northern Hemisphere and Celesteela in the Southern Hemisphere, followed by a switch between the two from September 8 to 16. Mega Raids, a popular raid variant, will highlight the powerful Manectric.

Research Tasks and Avatars Inspired by Scarlet and Violet

Throughout the event, players can engage in event-themed Field Research tasks that offer encounters with the newly introduced Pokemon: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly, and Lechonk. Additionally, a Collection Challenge centered around the Paldea region will reward participants with Stardust and further encounters with Lechonk. To infuse a touch of the upcoming Scarlet and Violet DLC, new avatar items inspired by the main characters will be available to all Trainers from September 13.

Ultra Unlock: Paldea and the Continuation of New Pokemon

The excitement doesn’t end with the initial event. From September 10 to 15, the Ultra Unlock: Paldea event takes center stage. During this period, more Pokemon from the Paldea region are set to make their debut in Pokemon Go. The list includes Nymble (also known as Lokix), Pawmi (alternatively named Pawmo and Pawmot), Bombirdier, and Frigibax (recognized as Arctibax and Baxcalibur).

Following this event, the Pokemon Frigibax will continue to be available to hatch from 10km Eggs. Players might even get lucky and encounter a shiny Frigibax, adding an element of surprise and delight to their journey.

Continued Raid Adventures and Special Research

Just as before, the enigmatic Unown letters will reappear in One-Star Raids during this phase. Three-Star Raids will showcase powerful Pokemon like Turtonator, Kleavor, and Bombirdier. Five-Star Raids, a pinnacle challenge, will initially feature Kartana in the Northern Hemisphere and Celesteela in the Southern Hemisphere. However, an intriguing twist awaits: Celesteela and Kartana will temporarily inhabit different parts of the world, offering players a unique global experience. The Mega Raids will maintain the spotlight on the formidable Manectric.

Players can anticipate more engaging and rewarding Field Research tasks during this period, offering encounters with Pokemon like Pawmi. These tasks add an element of purposeful exploration to the game, encouraging players to embark on various adventures to complete their objectives.

Community Day Classic and a Live-Action Pokemon Series

As the month of September unfolds, the excitement doesn’t stop with in-game events alone. On September 2, a special Community Day Classic event featuring Charmander will take place from 2 to 5 pm local time. Evolution enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that evolving Charmander’s evolved form, Charmeleon, into Charizard during the event or up to two hours afterward will result in the Pokemon knowing the powerful Dragon Breath Fast Attack and the fiery Charged Attack, Blast Burn.

The Community Day Classic extends its influence to Field Research tasks, allowing players to immerse themselves in the thrill of the event. For a nominal fee of $1, players can gain access to the Charmander Community Day Classic-exclusive Special Research story, adding an extra layer of depth to their gaming experience.

Nanase Nishino: A Popstar Takes the Lead in a Live-Action Pokemon Series

In a parallel world of entertainment, the announcement of a live-action Pokemon series has captured the attention of fans. Japanese pop star Nanase Nishino has been cast in the lead role of Madoka Agaki, a character who embarks on a journey filled with adventure and self-discovery.

The upcoming live-action series, titled “Pocket ni Bōken wo Tsumekonde,” draws its inspiration from the original Pokemon games Red and Green, known as Red and Blue in Western regions.
