The highlight is Pokemon Go Tour: Johto, a massive 12-hour event beginning February 26 from 9 AM to 9 PM local time. The event will be free for all players, but an extra ticketed event--centered on Pokemon Gold and Silver, depending on the player's choice--can also be purchased. The event will feature unique music centered around the Johto region, new shinies, unique Pokemon hatching from eggs, and special Timed Research tasks that will lead to encounters with legendary Pokemon.

Raid Hours will also continue in February, as every Wednesday a special Raid Hour will highlight a specific five-star Raid Pokemon. The Raid Hour occurs from 6 PM to 7 PM local time, and will feature the following Pokemon:

  • February 2 - Regirock
  • February 9 - Registeel
  • February 16 - Deoxys (Normal Forme)
  • February 23 - Deoxys (Defense Forme)
Deoxys returns via five-star Raids in all Forms beginning February 16.
Deoxys returns via five-star Raids in all Forms beginning February 16.

Speaking of Deoxys, all four forms of the legendary Pokemon will be returning to five-star Raids in the second half of February, with each form being highlighted a few days at a time. The schedule of Deoxys raids looks like this:

  • Normal Forme (February 16-19)
  • Attack Forme (February 19-22)
