Should you pick Red or Green version in the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event?

It really comes down to which shiny Pokémon you'd rather see.

Running as the conclusion to all of the region celebration events, Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto will have players trying to catch all of the original 150 original Pokémon in a 12-hour event on Feb. 20.

But before they try to catch ’em all, they actually need to make a decision on which version of the event they want to participate in. 

Just like the original Pokémon games, players will choose between Red or Green versions, with each offering exclusive content that will make both paths distinct. The differences between versions include version-exclusive Pokémon, different spawn rates for certain Pokémon, and more.
