To celebrate the launch of The Crown Tundra, part two of the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, Pokémon GO is holding a special 24-hour event!
Two of the most anticipated Galarian Pokémon will be making their debut! One will be a wild spawn, and the other a Tier 1 Raid Boss! Without further ado, let’s take a look!
Go and catch yourself these Galarian Pokémon while the event lasts! After the event ends, Galarian Ponyta and Galarian Farfetch’d will be hatching from 7 km Eggs, and you’ll still be able to evolve these Pokémon.

Galarian Farfetch’d, which debuted during a PGO event celebrating the release of the first part of the Pokémon SWSH expansion pass The Isle of Armor, will be appearing in the wild!
Now, during the celebration of The Crown Tundra, you will be able to evolve Galarian Fartfetch’d into Sirfetch’d! How will this evolution happen you ask? You will need to make 10 Excellent Throws with Galarian Farfetch’d as your buddy to unlock the evolution process.
*Note: The number of excellent throws you have made will NOT reset when you change you Buddy Pokémon!

New avatar items
What would a celebration event be without some new Avatar Items! Well, guess what? You get some!
New avatar items designed to resemble the clothing Trainers wear in The Crown Tundra are available in the Style Shop! You can get them at no cost, so head over to the Style Shop to check them out!
Here is some Crown Tundra artwork to show you what the new Avatar Items should look like in-game!
The release of The Crown Tundra has been long-awaited in the Pokémon world and Pokémon GO gets to take part in the celebration! We personally cannot wait to get our hands on some Galarian Ponyta. Sirfetch’d should also bring an interesting twist to the game, most likely in the PvP realm. Have fun out there catching and evolving these new debuts, and remember, stay safe!
