Niantic Labs has revealed that this month we’ll be seeing Hoenn Region Pokémon getting the spotlight in Pokémon Go.

The new event brings Kyogre and Groudon back into raids, with a chance to catch a shiny after winning the raid. Talking of shinies, Zigzagoon and Taillow now have a chance of showing up as shiny in the wild from now on. If you evolve a Shroomish into a Breloom during the event, it will know the exclusive move Grass Knot.

Spinning Pokéstops will have a chance of giving Hoenn based research. Check out the list below to see what quests we now have temporary access to and their rewards:

  • Evolve 3 Wurmple – Trapinch
  • Hatch 2 Eggs – Nosepass
  • Catch 10 Zigzagoon or Taillow – 1,000 Stardust

Also, we can now dress our player avatars in costumes based on the villainous Team Aqua and Team Magma as the grunt’s uniforms are now available from the store awaiting your hard earned Pokécoins.

This event will be running until 29 January at 1:00 pm. So get out there, GO catch ’em all and stay tuned to n3rdabl3 for your Pokémon news, rumours and reviews.
