Pokémon GO pays tribute to Kanto with a week full of events and news


The first region of the Pokémon GO game to be honored in a series of events that will take place in the remainder of the month.

Pokémon GO will close this very important month of February for the Pokémon saga, since on the 27th of this month its 25th anniversary is celebrated, with a series of events that will remember the region where Pikachu and company began their journey, Kanto.

Niantic has prepared a spectacular closure for this month of February with two events that will pay tribute to Kanto: a main event in which we can capture and evolve to a lot of Pokémon and a final event, which will take place on the last day of the month, which will consist of a day of raids, in which we can get some Pokémon such as Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres and even a new Dark Legendary Pokémon.
