Fashion Week has returned to Pokémon Go. It will be a brief event in the mobile game for you to catch a handful of Pokémon wearing unique articles of clothing. Although these Pokémon are wearing costumes, you can still evolve them, find shiny versions of them in the wild, or Mega Evolve them, such as Absol. During the event, there are several Fashion Challengers you will be battling against for the Timed Research. This guide covers all Fashion Challengers Pokémon appearing in Fashion Week 2022 for Pokémon Go.
All Fashion Week 2022 Fashion Challengers
There are three Fashion Challengers you will need to battle against. These are NPC trainers you have to find while completing the Timed Research. They only appear after clearing the Timed Research tasks and do not appear in the wild or at Poké Stops.
These are the three Fashion Challengers you will need to battle against and the Pokémon they are using.
