The Pokémon GO event will feature the usual parts of an event in that game, special featured encounters, raids, special Pokémon hatching from eggs, as well as an all-new event Pikachu, and the debuts of two new Pokémon into the game. Many of the featured Pokémon as a part of this event take us back to the game's earliest generations, highlighted by the Kanto starters slated to appear more frequently in the wild, and in Mega Raids as their final evolution. Additionally, Mewtwo will be making its long-awaited return to five-star raids for players to take on with the possibility of catching.

Wimpod, Golisopod, and an event Pikachu wearing a TCG hat all make their in-game debuts, with Golisopod having the opportunity to be shiny when players encounter it. Additionally, Meltan can be caught by obtaining the mystery box from transfering a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME.
