Perhaps the biggest draw to this stop on the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto journey is the ability to get Meganium, Typhlosion, Ampharos, and Tyranitar’s Exclusives moves when you evolve them. These moves were previously only available on Community Days and via Elite TMs.
Who doesn’t like a new shiny? We know we do, even if it’s Miltank. Not to mention all the other great features this stop on the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto has to offer such as Raids, Field Research, Exclusive Moves, and more! What is your favorite event feature?
