In celebration, Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will take over wild encounters until February 13. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to catch powerful Pokémon such as Salamence, Altaria, Metagross, and more!
The Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza will be appearing in Raid Battles in Gyms near you until March 16.
