The Pokemon Company

The Pokémon Company has announced a new Max Raid Battle featuring a Gigantamax Pikachu. This Max Raid Battle will begin on February 26 and will run through February 28 to commemorate Pokemon Day.

It is also mentioned that 100 Armorite Ore and 100 Dynite Ore will be distributed to players if 1 million people participate in the event.


Pokemon Day, a day to commemorate the release of Pokemon Green in 1996, is coming soon on February 27. The Pokemon Company is planning many different events to celebrate, and have even opened an exclusive site for Pokemon Day. 

This website can be found here, and while it is entirely in Japanese, it has a lot of fun Pokemon information and art (including a live vote of popular Pokemon). It’s a website that is worth checking out for any Pokemon fan, and there’s a chance that new announcements for Pokemon Day will show up on this site as well.

Pokemon Home has received a new update on iOS and Android devices. This update adds various accessibility options (such as the ability to search for Pokemon by language) as well as streamlining features.

For all the details, check out the full patch notes below:
