The Pokemon GO Stadium event is currently happening at Yokohama in Japan. There, Mewtwo has appeared for the first time in Pokemon GO as a special raid boss, giving attendees a chance to catch this Legendary Pokemon.

There’s currently no word if or when Mewtwo will appear outside the context of that event. We will keep you updated.


A special “Pikachu Outbreak” event is currently being hosted for Pokemon GO in Japan. Through August 15, players will be able to explore two special Kanto and Johto-themed parks. The Red Brick Park has Pokemon originally from the Kanto region appearing more frequently. The same goes for the Johto region at Cup Noodle Museum Park.

Other activities are also underway, such as Pokemon rarely encountered in Japan appearing, including Mr. Mime. The Photo Disc at the PokeStops found at each of these parks may also award Trainers special 2 km Eggs with the potential to hatch a greater variety of Pokemon than usual.

That’s not all though. We’re hearing reports that a Shiny Pikachu has been sighted. That also means Shiny Raichu and (potentially) Pichu are present. For Pichu, it seems that the Pokemon has to be hatched during the duration of the event similar to Ash Hat Pichu. We’ve not actually seen a screenshot of Shiny Pichu, but since its sprite is present, it’s likely available.

Pokemon GO players have been experiencing a notable issue over the past few days. When the problem occurs, they are unable to capture a Raid Boss with their last Premier Ball. The Pokemon always breaks free.

Niantic says that a fix is already underway. For now, Pokemon GO is providing an extra Premier Ball in the Bonus Challenge.
