Niantic has revealed the first details of the Pokémon GO: Hoenn Tour, which will be held in February 2023 in Las Vegas, NV. We will be able to get our hands on Groudon and Kyogre in their Primal form, as well as a Shiny Jirachi. Below we give you all the details of this Pokémon GO event:

Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn - Dates, times and how to participate

Niantic has announced that there will be two versions of the Pokémon GO: Hoenn Tour to be held in Pokémon GO in February 2023: an in-person event for Las Vegas, United States, and one for the rest of the world. The Las Vegas event will be held at Sunset Park on February 18 and 19, 2023 from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM PST. To participate, we will have to pay a ticket worth $25 if purchased before December 31.

All the new features of the Pokémon GO: Hoenn Tour in February 2023

New Pokémon GO Tour Special Research: Hoenn

Players participating in the in-person event in Las Vegas will be able to follow a Special Research in which we will collaborate with the Team GO Rocket Leaders: Arlo, Cliff and Sierra. Have they really changed for the better, or is it a ploy?

The Special Investigation that will be available to everyone is one from Rhi, with which we will be able to investigate the Red and Blue Prisms, which have some connection to Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon. Although Niantic's blog posts do not make it clear, perhaps it is this Special Investigation that will allow us to obtain Jirachi Shiny.

With the Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn event, Groudon and Kyogre in their Primal form are coming to Pokémon GO for the first time. They will be available in the new Primal Raids, although you can also expect to be able to get copies of both Pokémon with the Rhi Special Investigation we told you about above.
