Pokemon GO planning 2021 New Year’s event

Posted on December 22, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

Pokemon GO is ending 2020 – and starting 2021 – with a New Year’s event. There’ll be Pokemon wearing festive costumes, Slowpoke wearing 2020 glasses in the wild, and more.

Here are the full event details:

Happy 2020 from Slowpoke! Wait, no – it’ll be 2021 in just a few days. Turns out Slowpoke is late to the game as always. For this year’s New Year’s event, you can expect new costumed Pokémon (like a Slowpoke wearing 2020 glasses) and new avatar items, as well as the return of some familiar Pokémon wearing party hats.
