Trainers,
Happy 2020 from Slowpoke! Wait, no—it’s about to be 2022! Why is Slowpoke still wearing those glasses? At least Slowking got the memo! That’s right—our New Year’s celebration event is right around the corner! Look forward to Pokémon wearing new costumes, themed avatar items, the return of some familiar Pokémon wearing party hats, and a certain Shiny Pokémon will be appearing for the first time in Pokémon GO.
