For the duration of the Carnival of Love event, you’ll be able to change your Natural Form Furfrou to Heart Trim Furfrou!

  • Furfrou (Heart)

Follow these steps to change Furfrou’s Trim.

  • Find Furfrou in your Pokémon Storage, tap it to check its summary, and then tap the Change Form button to bring up a menu that lists the available trims.
  • Select your preferred trim.
  • Changing your Furfrou from one trim to any other trim will cost 25 Furfrou Candy and 10,000 Stardust.

PokéStop Showcases

Be on the lookout for Showcases at different PokéStops during the Carnival of Love event where you can enter event-themed Pokémon. Trainers will be able to enter their biggest Buddy Pokémon!*

* Buddy Pokémon must be a Great Buddy or higher to be entered in the Showcase.

Note: The Showcases for these Pokémon do not require the Pokémon to be Great Buddies. That Showcase might happen on the last day of the event.
