Heatran makes its return to Pokémon GO! So, if you didn’t get its shiny variant last time it was here, now is another opportunity!
SET SAIL TO SINNOH
So yes, Buizel isn’t quite the same main attraction level excitement as Snivy was, but, that is not everything this event has. We get some interesting new Raid Bosses, Field Research Tasks, and some Eggs to hatch as well.
Remember, always obey you your local health and safety mandates, and stay socially distanced! Stay safe Fam!
