Celebrate the power of change with the Evolution Event!

Trainers, Perhaps one of the greatest lessons we learn from Pokémon is that it’s possible to evolve into a surprising and cool being—sometimes we just need a little boost or help! Let’s celebrate how much your Pokémon (and you) have grown this year with the first-ever Evolution Event and an accompanying Raid Day. Pokémon Evolution can depend on whether a Pokémon is a certain gender or has spent time as a Buddy Pokémon. Sometimes Evolution occurs because of particular items, times of day, or Lure Modules. During this event, you’ll be able to explore all these unique ways Pokémon evolve!

Evolution Event
Look forward to Evolution items from raids, longer-lasting Lure Modules, and increased encounters with Pokémon that evolve in special ways.

Date + Time
From Thursday, December 5, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. to Thursday, December 12, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8)

Features
  • Pokémon that evolve in unique ways—such as Onix, Eevee, Roselia, and Burmy—will be appearing more often in the wild, in raids, and in Field Research.
  • Take on raids against Pokémon with unique Evolutions, like Lickitung, Scyther, Togetic, and Ralts!
  • Find more 2 km Eggs that will hatch into Pokémon such as Tyrogue, Feebas, Burmy, and Happiny.
  • Event-specific Field Research tasks that reward Evolution items, which can help you evolve certain Pokémon, will be available.
  • If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Burmy!

Bonuses
  • All Lure Modules will last one hour for the duration of the event, including the Glacial, Magnetic, and Mossy Lure Modules.
  • 2× XP when evolving Pokémon
  • Evolution items from raids

Evolution Event Raid Day
Date + Time
  • Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in your local time zone
Features
  • Encounter Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle in one-star raids.
  • Encounter Ivysaur, Charmeleon, and Wartortle in two-star raids.
  • Encounter Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise in four-star raids.
  • Receive up to five additional Raid Passes during the Raid Day time period when you spin a Photo Disc at a Gym. These Raid Passes will not be available after the event period is over. You cannot hold more than one Raid Pass at once.
A lot can change in a year—or even in a moment! We hope to catch you out there celebrating the power of Evolution, Trainers. Let’s GO!

2020 Pokémon Video Game Championships (VGC) Format Rules

The official Pokémon website has announced rules details for the upcoming 2020 Pokémon Video Game Championships season which starts on January 4th, 2020.

Image

Battles in the Pokémon Video Game Championships will change forever on January 4, 2020, as battles move to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield on Nintendo Switch. Players will need to devise new strategies as they incorporate the recently discovered Pokémon from the Galar region into their teams. There's still plenty of time to earn your invitation to the 2020 Pokémon World Championships in—where else—the United Kingdom, so start preparing your team today.

Tournaments in the 2020 Video Game Championships will include the following rules:

  • All battles will be Double Battles played in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
  • Each player will need their own Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite and a physical or digital version of Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield to compete.
  • Pokémon will need to have the Galar symbol, showing they were caught in the Galar region.
  • All Pokémon from the Galar Regional Pokédex will be permitted except for Mythical Pokémon and certain Legendary Pokémon.
  • All Pokémon will be set to Lv. 50, including Pokémon below Lv. 50.
  • Duplicate Pokémon will not be allowed.
  • Duplicate held items will not be allowed.
  • Each battle will begin with a 90-second Team Preview phase.
  • Players will have 7 minutes of Your Time, 45 seconds of Move Time, and (now returning to the VGC) 15 minutes of Game Time in each battle.

Additional restrictions apply to Pokémon that are capable of Gigantamaxing. While such Pokémon are very rare, there are sometimes opportunities to find them more frequently. For instance, from Friday, November 15, 2019, until early January 2020, players are more likely to encounter Gigantamax Drednaw in Pokémon Sword Max Raid Battles, Gigantamax Corviknight in Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battles, and Gigantamax Butterfree in Max Raid Battles for either game. The list of species permitted to Gigantamax will expand every few months based on events in which these Pokémon become more common. The Play! Pokémon VG Rules and Formats document on the Play! Pokémon Rules & Resources page will be updated every few months to indicate when these Pokémon are permitted for use. Pokémon capable of Gigantamaxing are not legal until they are included in the Play! Pokémon VG Rules and Formats document.

As of January 4, 2020, the following are the only Pokémon with the Gigantamax Factor that are permitted to compete:

  • Butterfree
  • Corviknight
  • Drednaw
  • Centiskorch
  • Meowth
  • Pikachu
  • Eevee
  • Snorlax
  • Sandaconda
  • Charizard (only permitted with the Ability Blaze)

Battles in the Video Game Championships will switch to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield in just a few weeks, on January 4, 2020, so make sure to prepare your team. Check out the Event Locator to find an event near you, and start your trek toward the Pokémon World Championships today!

‘Ringing In the Fun’ Pikachu Figure from Funko at the Pokémon Center

Get your first look at the latest figure from Funko’s A Day with Pikachu collection, coming soon to the Pokémon Center.

Pikachu has had a fantastic year, but the little Pokémon is looking forward to all the exciting possibilities that are in store for the New Year! Ringing In the Fun is the latest figure in Funko's A Day with Pikachu series, and it shows Pikachu celebrating at the end of the countdown to midnight. The hands on the Hoothoot clock are at 12, and we can see a used party cracker that has covered the ground with colorful confetti. And is it just us, or does Pikachu's noisemaker look suspiciously like the Ultra Beast Blacephalon?
