The developers of Pokemon Go have announced two special edition outfits for trainers’ in-game avatars to celebrate the release of Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Since its release in 2016, Pokemon Go has offered the ability to change the style of your in-game avatar to help trainers feel like they’re playing the game with a version of themselves.

Niantic’s popular mobile game has regularly featured in-game events throughout the years, with some including a wide variety of items for your avatar, including a collab with big-name brands like North Face and Gucci.
