When the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto starts on February 20, 2021, Trainers who have purchased a ticket will be able to choose the Red or Green Edition of the event content. We summarize what you can expect from both variants.

2021 is a very special year for Pokémon fans as the franchise is celebrating its 25th anniversary. In addition, Pokémon GO is five years old – and the developers at Niantic want to celebrate these two anniversaries appropriately. The Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto marks the beginning of the celebrations. If you buy a ticket for the event, which takes place on February 20, 2021, you have the opportunity to register for the Red or Green Edition to decide.

Both editions each contain exclusive Pokémon and a higher chance of certain Shiny variants:

Red edition

  • exclusive Pokémon: Rettan, Myrapla, Menki, Fukano, Sichlor and Elektek
  • Higher chance of shiny: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Schiggy, Taubsi, Rettan, Pikachu, Nidoran♀, Myrapla, Digda, Menki, Fukano, Ponita, Muschas, Traumato, Krabby, Kicklee, Schlurp, Sichlor, Elektek, Evoli, Kabuto and Dratini

Green edition

  • exclusive Pokémon: Sandan, Vulpix, Meowth, Knofensa, Magmar and Pinsir
  • higher shiny chance: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Schiggy, Taubsi, Pikachu, Sandan, Nidoran♂, Vulpix, Mauzi, Enton, Knofensa, Kleinstein, Owei, Nockchan, Smogon, Tangela, Seeper, Magmar, Pinsir, Evoli, Amonitas and Dratini

The developers have now also announced in a blog post how you can make your choice for the respective edition if you have bought a ticket for the Kanto tour:

  • Open your item bag and choose your tour ticket.
  • In the selection window that opens, tap on "Select red" or "Select green" and confirm your choice with "YES".

Remember that you can no longer undo your decision. You will also need to choose an edition before you can start the event. As soon as you open the app, a pop-up message will prompt you to make your choice.
