Pokémon Go’s Anniversary Event 2022 is now underway, with Niantic putting a bit of new content out there to celebrate the game’s sixth anniversary.

Running from July 6 to 12, players will have access to basically every region’s starter, a few Pokémon with special costumes, and event-exclusive Timed Research too. 

Most of the focus for this sixth-anniversary celebration is placed on the starters, specifically, Charizard, which has its entire evolution line appearing with party hats and as Shinies. Cake Costume Pikachu is also being offered, though those are the only new Pokémon being added during the event.
