Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn - Global

Pokémon GO Tour

Starts:
Saturday, February 25, at 10:00 AM Local Time
Ends:
Sunday, February 26, at 6:00 PM Local Time

Pokémon GO Tour returns in 2023 for Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas and Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global! Get ready to head to Las Vegas and have a chance to catch most Pokémon from the Hoenn Region of Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire— – or experience the adventure globally the following weekend!

Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire are the third generation of Pokémon games, released on the Game Boy Advance. Trainers first encountered the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon in these games!

Trainers who attend either event will be able to choose between a Ruby ticket or a Sapphire ticket. This choice will give you different options for your adventure—we’ll release more information later to help you make your decision!

You can find details on the Las Vegas event here.




Features

Ruby vs. Sapphire Challenge

As the earth and sea clash, which side will you stand with? All Trainers will be able to pick between a Ruby and Sapphire badge. The team you pick will shape certain in-person Pokémon encounters!

Each hour, you can complete special Field Research on behalf of your team. Depending on which team completes more Field Research, all Trainers will see increased Primal Raids for either Primal Kyogre (Sapphire) or Primal Groudon (Ruby)—plus an increased chance of encountering additional wild Pokémon!

The badge Trainers pick at Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas will carry over to the global event the following weekend.


Primal Surges!

Something is happening to Kyogre and Groudon, and they are bringing the might of the sea and earth with them.

You can encounter their Primal Reversion forms for the first time in Pokémon GO and experience the true nature of their power at the global event, Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global!


Kecleon heads to Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global!

After its initial appearance at Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas, we’ve learned that lucky Trainers may encounter Shiny Kecleon in the wild during Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global!

Don’t miss your chance to catch this elusive Pokémon from the Hoenn region!


New Music

You can look forward to new pieces of featured music inspired by Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire. These pieces were created by Junichi Masuda, Pokémon video game series composer and Chief Creative Fellow of The Pokémon Company!
