The latest Pokémon Go event celebrates upcoming TCG set

Pokemon TCG crossover event: The Pokemon Wimpod looks up towards its trainer

We’ve only just recovered from this year’s Pokémon Go Fest, but Niantic has unveiled all the juicy details on the upcoming Pokémon Go Pokémon TCG crossover event. We hope you like finding Pikachu in a new hat, because if so you’re not gonna believe what’s on the way. This collaboration celebrates the upcoming Pokémon Go TCG set, which arrives in July.

The Pokemon Go Pokémon TCG crossover event is set to introduce Wimpod and Golisopod from Pokémon Sun and Moon to Pokémon Go. Like many two-stage evolutions, evolving Wimpod will require 400 Wimpod candy, so get saving. The event also introduces a Pikachu wearing a Pokémon TCG hat, with a chance to encounter a shiny of this new form to boot. The event runs from Thursday, June 16 and 10:00 am local time to Thursday, June 30 at 8:00 pm local time.

Also returning in this latest event is shiny Meltan, with the reintroduction of the mystery box when players transfer a Pokémon from Pokémon Go to Pokémon Home, or the Nintendo Switch titles Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Using the mystery box will spawn multiple Meltan around the player for a limited time, so use this chance to catch as many as you can. Hopefully, you can grab a shiny, and remember you’ll need 400 Meltan candies to evolve it to Melmetal. Are you looking forward to this latest event?
