GPS games work best when they take advantage of your location, which is exactly what Pokémon Go’s Carnival of Love event does. The Valentines-themed event is part of the Timeless Travels season and introduces shiny Oricorio to the game for the first time.

You can always count on Pokémon Go to offer unique and fun seasonal events year-round, and the Carnival of Love Valentine’s celebration is no different. Oricorio, Alola’s form-shifting bird Pokémon, is the star of the show, making its shiny debut and tasking trainers with collecting each form from around the world. Time to get in touch with your international friends and get trading!

It’s not Valentine’s Day without a bouquet of flowers, so you’ll also find region-specific colors of Flabébé floating on the wind. Orange and white flower Flabébé can spawn anywhere, so keep your eyes peeled. Plus, if you’re a fan of dog Pokémon, you’ll have the chance to give your Furfrou the Heart Trim haircut to celebrate the season of love.

Where can I find Oricorio in Pokémon Go?

Here are the spawn locations for Oricorio’s different forms during the Carnival of Love:

  • Baile Style: Europe, the Middle East, and Africa
  • Pom-Pom Style: the Americas
  • Pa’u Style: African, Asian, Pacific, and Caribbean islands
