Pokemon Go Tour: Johto is coming to select cities in Europe for real-world celebrations

The Pokémon Go Tour: Johto is close to kicking off and Niantic is constantly trickling down information for fans who are waiting for it. While players can enjoy the entire tour from wherever they are, Niantic is also hosting in-person events in select cities across Europe for trainers to enjoy. Those staying in these European cities can make their way and interact with other trainers, play with them, trade, enjoy photo ops, and have an absolutely rollicking time. The real-world celebrations will be held between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm local time on February 26th. Check out this list of destinations and find the one closest to you!

While there is no registration fee to participate in the live celebrations, there is, however, an entrance fee at Britzer Garten, Berlin and Westfalenpark, Dortmund. You can find more details about that on their respective websites. Also, if you live in another country as I do, fear not as everyone can enjoy the same Johto tour from anywhere, with the ticketed and non-ticketed experiences being the same barring the kind of Pokémon encounters and some special guests.

The Johto tour celebrates Pokémon Gold and Silver and will feature all the Pokémon from this generation. Players can catch new Pokémon, earn stardust, complete quests, and earn loads of rewards. Ticket holders also get a premium experience with the new Masterwork Research quest that involves trainers helping Apex Shadow versions of Ho-Oh and Lugia. Additionally, the GO Tour Poké Ball Prep Rally event kicks off tomorrow and will help players stash on numerous Poké Balls to prepare for the event.
