Everything about Pokémon Go’s Unova Celebration event – January 2021

A Unova celebration.


The year 2021 will have plenty of new events and features for Pokémon Go fans to become excited about. Some of the early events coming up in the year will be the Kanto Tour event, and in it players will be able to capture the first 150 Pokémon that appeared in the series. It’ll be Pokémon Go’s way of celebrating the 25th celebration of Pokémon’s release, a fitting event for the franchise. Before we get to that event in February, January will be all about celebrating the other regions in Pokémon, and the first will be Unova, and the event takes place January 5 at 10 AM to the 11 at 8 PM.
