All increased spawns, encounters, event raids, and bonuses for Pokémon Go Tour: Johto

So much to do, but can you keep track of it all?

Pokémon Go Tour has become a tentpole for Niantic’s yearly event calendar for Pokémon Go, bringing players together in order to experience nostalgic elements of older Pokémon games in new ways. 

This year, Pokémon Go Tour: Johto will give players the opportunity to relive the adventures of Pokémon Gold and Silver on Feb. 26. 

Throughout the event, players will be encountering Pokémon from across Johto in the wild and raids, by hatching Eggs, after completing research tasks, and much more. They will also be tasked with completing various challenges as part of the event-exclusive Special and Timed Research. 

The habitat rotation is also making its return, meaning certain species of Pokémon will be appearing more frequently depending on when you are playing the game as Pokémon Go tries to better emulate locations from the Johto region. Collection Challenges will also tie into the habitats and general aspects of the event.

Because there are so many elements to keep track of during Go Tour: Johto, however, it is easy to lose track of which Pokémon are appearing. 

So for those planning to participate, here are all of the unique spawns and raids that will be featured throughout both days—excluding habitat encounters. And remember, every Pokémon native to Johto can appear as a Shiny during the event!
