Pokemon Go Kanto Celebration Event 2021 – Event Tasks, Rewards, Timed Research, Collection Challenges and More

Here is all you need to know about the Pokemon Go Kanto Celebration Event.

Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto served as a reminiscence of the first season of the anime and gave players a trip down the memory lane. Featuring a number of new Pokemon and their shiny variants, the event was divided into multiple parts, each focusing on one part of the Kanto region. Players also had a chance to capture the legendary shiny Mew upon completing the masterwork research task. After the conclusion of the event, Niantic has more to offer for fans out there.

The Kanto celebration event will run for a week after the conclusion of the Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto. The event started at 10:00 a.m. local time on Sunday, February 21, and will continue till 8:00 p.m. local time on Saturday, February 27, 2021. While the event is pretty long, there are quite a number of tasks players need to finish in order to get the rewards. As part of the event, players need to complete timed research that has four stages. Each stage has a plethora of rewards, so make sure you finish all the stages.
