The countdown continues before the 25th anniversary of Pokémon, which will rise with an event in Kanto. We visit the Pokémon Gold and Silver region.
Niantic continues its countdown to the Pokémon GO: Kanto Tour. After touring regions such as Kalos, Unova, Sinnoh and Hoenn, this regressive way of approaching the twenty-fifth anniversary of the famous saga now brings us together with the Johto Celebration Event, a reunion with Generation II in Pokémon GO. Let’s know all the details, because this does not stop: in a few days we will have Totodile, Chikorita, Cyndaquil and company roaming the streets.
