Are you ready for Pokémon GO Tour: Johto?

To help Trainers all over the world get ready—and to make sure everybody has more than enough Poké Balls to catch all their favorite Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region—we’re happy to announce the GO Tour Poké Ball Prep Rally event!

But that’s not all! Several ball-like Pokémon will be appearing, and this event will also mark Hisuian Electrode’s Pokémon GO debut! Make sure to catch Hisuian Voltorb and get ready for this glimpse into the Hisui region of the Pokémon Legends: Arceus game on Nintendo Switch.

And of course, no Poké Ball celebration would be complete without Ball Guy! You’ll be able to dress up as the mysterious mascot of the Galar Pokémon League with a new Ball Guy costume avatar item.
