A two week long Pokemon Go special event has been announced! The event, as the name suggests, is centred around Pokemon from the Hoenn region.

Hoenn Region Event Date & Time

The turnaround from announcement to the start of the event is a short one. Starting tomorrow, the event runs from January 15, 1pm PST, for two weeks until January 29, 1pm PST. That time is 9pm GMT and 6am JST.

Heonn Event Features

Pokemon from the Heonn region will appear more frequently during the event period. Furthermore, if you evolve Shroomish into Breloom, it will learn the exclusive move Grass Knot. The evolution must occur during the event, however.

Another exciting feature is that shiny variants of Zigzagoon and Taillow will also be available.

In addition to this, further Pokemon Go modes will have a Hoenn region theme to them. Raid battles will include the legendary Pokemon, Kyogre and Groudon. Elsewhere, the increasingly popular field research will highlight Pokemon from the region.

The Heonn region event will feature Kyogre and Groudon in raid battles!

Finally, Pokemon hatched from 7km eggs will also have an increased chance of being from the Heonn region.

Generation 3

The Heonn region was first introduced in generation 3 of the Pokemon video game series. More specifically, it was Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald that were the first games to feature the region.

Generation 4 Coming Soon?

A two week long event highlighting the gen 3 region might suggest the introduction of gen 4 to Pokemon Go is getting ever closer.

Gen 4 Pokemon first started to appear in Pokemon Go back in October 2018. So far there have been 26 variants introduced. Therefore, there are still 56 yet to be released.

Pokemon leak finally debunks mystery of “unfinished” Kalos region

The mystery of the unfinished story of Pokemon X and Y’s Kalos region has been discussed in the Pokemon community for years. Now a leak appears to have revealed the details, or lack thereof.

With Xerneas and Yveltal getting their own game in the form of Pokemon X and Y, it seemed strange Zygarde didn’t get the same treatment. At one point in time, it was almost a given that Pokemon Z would materialize. Of course, that never happened.

A leak has seemingly revealed that a sequel to the Gen 6 game was planned but ultimately canceled. The reason for this remains unknown.

It was initially posted on 4chan and picked up on by Lewtwo. “There were reservations in place for a second pair of games to be based in Kalos,” the PokeYoutuber shared on Twitter.

Interestingly, the code revealed apparent reservations for two new games. This suggests they could have been called Pokemon X2/Y2, much like Black 2 and White 2.

Pokemon X and Y never got the finish it deserved and now we know why…

Kalos in Pokemon Sword and Shield

The unfinished nature of the game had trainers speculating for years as to when the story would be finished. It seemed to be all part of the Pokemon Company’s grand plan but it looks like fans of the franchise gave the creators too much credit for their forward-thinking.

With Pokemon Sword and Shield being based on the UK, and Kalos being France, it seemed believable that the two games would intertwine. That never happened in the initial release and has yet to happen in either of the released DLCs.

This leak doesn’t mean that the Pokemon Company doesn’t intend on finishing the story, but it does mean there’s a chance it will go down as one of Pokemon’s great mysteries. After all, just because they canceled plans for a Pokemon X and Y sequel, doesn’t mean they have no intention to use the story at some point in the future.

Given the leak though, that may be a little optimistic. It looks like the unusable Couriway Train Station and matching caves between Kalos and Galar were just a coincidence. Or were they?
