Pokémon Air Adventures is a new travel initiative that's been launched by The Pokémon Company.

Here's all you need to know about Pokémon Air Adventures.

Pokémon Air Adventures: What is It?

A new travel promotion in Japan launched in June by The Pokémon Company, Pokémon Air Adventures aims to help create "wonderful travel memories."

Starting with Pikachu, Pokémon Air Adventures will feature Pokémon-themed jets in partnership with Japanese aviation company Skymark. The initiative will also be showcasing Pokémon-designed buses, trains and airport gates, as well as in-flight merchandise.

We hope that when people can travel, Pokémon Air Adventures can be an opportunity to help them enjoy traveling even more.

The Pokémon GO team

To supplement the new travel promotion, Niantic is releasing travel-related rewards in Pokémon GO.

Matching the real-life display located in Okinawa, Japan, a special Pikachu wearing an Okinawan kariyushi shirt will be appearing in Pokémon GO starting July 22.

According to Niantic, the special Pikachu will be appearing in-game for over a year for those able to visit Okinawa. Niantic said they are also looking to introduce other costumed Pokémon in the game that will be exclusive to certain regions of the world.

Shiny Corsola will also be appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time starting July 22. Corsola can be encountered only in certain regions. Thankfully, it appears there is no time limit planned for this Pokémon's appearance.
