Pokemon GO loves an excuse to put Pokemon in cute costumes, and with Halloween in the rearview mirror, fans may miss seeing their favorites play dress up. Thankfully, Fashion Week is coming in Pokemon GO and bringing some costumed Pokemon and other bonuses.

Fashion Week is a recurring event in Pokemon GO, where certain featured Pokemon spawn wear their fashionable best. There will also be some new avatar items and even the debut of a Shiny Pokemon to look forward to in this month’s event, making it a great time to collect some unique creatures and items in the game.

What would be the fun of Fashion Week if we can’t join our Pokemon in dressing up a bit? Several new avatar items will drop in the in-game shop, including:

  • Gothitelle-themed attire, such as a top, pants, and shoes
  • Reuniclus top and boots
  • A hooded denim jacket, complete with an embroidered PokeBall on the back
  • Denim pants

Some avatar items will also be on sale during Fashion Week, so if you’ve been eyeing something, now might be the best time to grab it.

Other Bonuses During Fashion Week in Pokemon GO November 2023

In addition to all of the fashionable featured Pokemon in their adorable costumes, trainers will get 2x candy for catching Pokemon during Fashion Week. Trainers level 31 and over will also have a higher chance of getting Candy XL from catches.

There will also be special PokeStop showcases featuring Gothita and Mareanie. Not to be upstaged, Dragonite will be the star of a special Collection Challenge, resulting in an encounter with Dragonite in its fancy new costume.

Players are also encouraged to wear their favorite fashionable avatar outfits during Party Play, but it doesn’t appear there are any other bonuses for that part of the game with this event.
