To commemorate the November release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Niantic has announced a new Pokémon GO event. Pokémon GO just honored the new Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle movie with tie-in content, which isn’t the first time the Niantic-developed game has recognized new Pokémon releases.
Pokémon GO fans have been treated to a slew of in-game festivities and events this year, thanks in part to the fact that 2021 marks the franchise’s 25th anniversary, as well as the fifth anniversary of the game’s release.
Over the summer, the mobile game celebrated its year anniversary in style with the hugely successful Pokémon GO Fest 2021. It hasn’t stopped announcing new improvements, events, and community days since then. The latest huge Pokémon GO event is putting a scary spin on the game for Halloween, with new Pokémon, Ghost-type raids, costumed characters, and more.
Pokémon GO will have an in-game celebration for the debut of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which will be released on Nintendo Switch in November, according to a press release. From November 16 to 21, Pokémon GO players will be able to participate in the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Celebration Event, which will commemorate their release. The Season of Mischief will begin on November 26 and will follow the Festival of Lights, which will take place from November 5 to 14.
Unfortunately, Niantic has yet to reveal the details of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Celebration Event, leaving fans in the dark for now. Similar to previous in-game festivities, a themed Special Research Event focusing on the Sinnoh-region games and characters is likely on the horizon. There are currently a lot of Generation Four Pokémon in Pokémon GO, but spawn rates for some of the rarer catches may grow, as well as other varieties.
The next big releases in the ever-growing series, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are intended to offer new audiences to the Sinnoh adventures. The planned games are complete remakes of the Nintendo DS titles Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, which were first released in 2006. Players will be able to make use of a number of enhancements over the original games, including new online functions and upgraded 3D Pokémon graphics. On November 19, the games will be released.
