Pokemon GO Gen 6 Release Date is unknown, but we have some teaser information that points to the GO Fest 2020 anniversary event.

Every year on Pokémon GO's anniversary, a special celebration illustration is produced to commemorate the occasion. This year will be the fourth year of Pokémon GO, and the anniversary illustration has some some interesting Gen 6 teasers.

Pokemon GO Gen 6 Release Date Teased in Anniversary Promo

First, we have some Mega Evolution Pokémon. Mega Evolution was introduced in the Gen 6 games Pokémon X and Y. We see Mega Mewtwo Y, Mega Charizard X and Mega Lucario.

Mega Evolution was announced earlier this year, but what's really new are cameos from the X and Y starters. Froakie, Fennekin and Chespin can be seen in the image.

There are also a few other Pokémon that have yet to be released in Pokémon GO, like Victini and Whimsicott. Victini was teased earlier as one of the Research Rewards for GO Fest 2020.

There's no official date for the release of X and Y Pokémon in Pokémon GO, but the teasers suggest sometime during the Anniversary event. Pokémon GO Fest 2020 will serve as this year's event and the second day of festivities are being kept a secret.

That secret could just be the introduction of X and Y Pokémon.
