Pokémon Go Kanto Tour: Red vs. Green is here! This month's event depends on your ticket - Red or Green - so make sure you remembered to purchase one from the in-game shop. But don't worry, you still have about two weeks before the event starts on Feb. 20. The event will take place between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (local time). While tickets have been on sale since the beginning of the year, Pokémon Go has only just released the versions that you can choose.

So, which to choose? Red, or Green? Thankfully, we're here to outline just a few of the differences between them so that you can make the best choice for Pokémon Go's Kanto Tour.

Pokémon GO Kanto Tour: Red vs Green?

So you've got your ticket. Yay! But now the hard choice; Red or Green? It's quite simple to do so. Once you have purchased your ticket, just go to your bag and tap on it, then select the prompt you want. But, what's the difference? Well, not much, but we'll lay it out here so you can decide.

Honestly, the only big difference is which of Pokémon have a higher chance of being shiny, and which ones are attracted to incense.

  • So, if you're interested in having a better chance of your Pokémon being shiny, here's what you need to know:


Oddish, Nidoran (female), Ekans, Mankey, Growlithe, Ponyta, Diglett, Shellder Krabby, Drowzee, Hitmonlee, Lickitung, Scyther, Electabuzz, and Kabuto.


Nidoran (male), Vulpix, Sandshrew, Geodude, Bellsprout, Exeggcute, Hitmonchan, Koffing, Tangela, Meowth, Horsea, Magmar, Pinsir, Psyduck, and Omanyte.

Red and Green

Eevee, Bulbasaur, Pidgey Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, and Dratini.

  • Meanwhile, these Pokémon will be attracted to incense:


Electabuzz, Oddish, Mankey, Growlithe, Ekans, and Scyther.


Vulpix, Meowth, Pinsir, Bellsprout, Sandshrew, and Magmar.

So, it really just depends on what you want to collect. Check out which ones you've already got - maybe you have a list of the ones you want to collect and decide from there. And, if you're not sure? Take a look around, do a bit of research. You might just find a shiny you've never thought of.
