The last event of the countdown to the 25th anniversary of the saga begins. We return to the region where it all began, including investigations.

The long-awaited Pokémon GO Kanto Celebration Event is here. After the Tour of Pokémon GO: Kanto (paid event) and the visit to many other regions of the saga on the occasion of the 25th anniversary – Kalos, Teselia, Sinnoh, Hoenn and Johto -, we are again in the place where this began phenomenon in February 1996 for Game Boy, only now through a meeting themed for the Niantic title on iOS and Android. We review all the missions, exclusive investigations and rewards of each of them.
