Pokémon Go’s Sinnoh Celebration event is turning the clock back a bit further than its Unova counterpart that just ended, putting the focus on the fourth generation of Pokémon from Jan. 12 to 17.

During the event, players can enjoy increased spawns, updated Raid and Egg pools, and a new Sinnoh Collection Challenge as part of the lead-up to Pokémon’s 25th anniversary. 

The main appeal of this event will be capturing the Shiny variants of several Sinnoh native Pokémon, including Shiny Buizel, which is now available for the first time. Heatran is also returning to five-star raids during this period, with a Shiny variant also available if you are lucky enough to encounter one.
