A SPRING IN YOUR STEP

Spring usually brings a renewal of the old and introduction of the new, and the Pokémon universe is seemingly no different. We have a new shiny debut as well, in Bunnelby, along with a new Mega Raid Boss in Mega Lopunny. We also have the debut of Flower Crown Happiny and Chansey and the return of previous Flower Crown Pokémon such as Eevee and Pikachu. What is your favorite feature of this event? Lets us know in the comments below, on our Discord Server, or on Twitter.
