It's time for another Pokemon Go limited-time event, this time with a unique theme compared to others. The popular, free-to-play mobile is celebrating their own version of Fashion Week, making several stylish Pokemon available to those who participate.

Taking place from Tuesday, September 27, at 10am, to Monday, October 3, at 8pm, you can expect to encounter and enjoy countless themed Pokemon during this event window. With these changes and bonuses spanning across many aspects of Pokemon Go, there is much to learn about this event if you wish to make the most of it — don't worry, we've got you covered.

Pokemon Debuts

Two Pokemon will be making their debut during the event. You will be able to encounter and catch Mareanie for the first time, and evolve it to Toxapex, another Pokemon not available to players before this event. Make sure that you catch it as soon as possible, as you will need 50 Mareanie Candy to evolve it — earning those from walking with Mareanie as your buddy will not be cheap.

Additionally, there will be several Pokemon appearing with stylish outfit variations for the first time during Pokemon Go Fashion Week. These include:

  • Absol
  • Diglett
  • Dugtrio
  • Toxicroak

Wild Encounters
