The official Japanese Pokémon Trading Card Game website has revealed a new type of card that will be included in the Pokémon GO set. Metamon cards in this set appear as other Pokémon. It will look like a normal Pokémon card, but on the surface of the card is a removeable sticker.

How to spot a Metamon

If there is a Metamon symbol in place of the regulation mark, the card has a sticker on its surface that when peeled off reveals Metamon! There are other cards besides Bippa that turn into Metamon when peeled off.
*Cards with the sticker not peeled off cannot be used in official tournaments.

Ditto

Now here's something you don't see every day… And if you're not looking closely, you might miss it! To find Ditto in the Pokémon GO expansion, look for other Pokémon that have a layer you can peel off to reveal the Transform Pokémon underneath! Note that the Pokémon that rests on top of Ditto can't be used competitively in official matches—only the Ditto itself. In fact, you'll find a little Ditto icon in place of the typical tournament registration mark!

Niantic has announced that new social features will be coming to Pokémon GO sometime in the next few months. Also announced was that starting on May 23rd, 2022, the shop’s 1 PokéCoin Event Box will no longer include Remote Raid Passes. Niantic did not announce that the price of the 3 Remote Raid Passes would be going up from 250 PokéCoin to 300 PokéCoin and the price has already been adjusted in the store.

New social features, as well as updates for in-person raids

Trainers,
Today we’re announcing new social features to help bring people together to enjoy Pokémon GO, new bonuses for participating in local raid battles, and changes to items in the in-game shop.

The new social features—some of which are based in a separate Niantic app—have been tested over time and will be available in Pokémon GO sometime in the next few months. Our hope is that these features will make it easier for Trainers to communicate with each other, discover new communities, and enjoy local raid battles.

We know that this feature is much needed and we look forward to making the social experience even better over time.

As of this month, Mega Energy and Rare Candy XL are available as rewards for completing local raid battles, making it easier to evolve and strengthen your Pokémon. Also, starting on May 23, the shop’s 1 PokéCoin Event Box will no longer include Remote Raid Passes and will instead feature a rotating array of items.

Trainers all over the world have helped Pokémon GO continue to thrive and grow over the past two years. Now, we’re excited to get back to playing together in person. To support players who have difficulty reaching Gyms, we will continue to work on solutions such as tools for community leaders to organize local events and faster approval for new Gyms.

We look forward to adventuring together in person!
