With the success of Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto earlier this year, the next stage of the Pokémon GO Tour is coming soon. Celebrate the classic Pokémon Gold and Silver versions with the Pokémon GO Tour: Johto! While some features will be available for all Trainers, a ticket to the Pokémon GO Tour: Johto will unlock the full experience of this event. For the first time, a live, in-person Pokémon GO Tour event will also be held.

Nine Collection Challenges will be available to complete during event hours.

Will You GO for Gold or Silver?
As with the Kanto Tour event, two different experiences will be available for ticketed players: Gold or Silver version. Each will feature version-exclusive Pokémon and better odds for certain shiny Pokémon. You'll need to choose your version before the event begins, and won't be able to switch once you've chosen. But don't rush, you have some time to think about it! Be sure to find a friend with the opposite version to trade and complete the Collection Challenge!
Version-Exclusive PokéMon attracted to Incense
Increased shiny odds By version
(NOTE: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Hoppip will have increased shiny odds regardless of version chosen)
