Niantic is always bringing new content to Pokémon GO, as well as organizing events to entertain millions of users. In 2021, it inaugurated a global event, the Pokémon GO Kanto Tour, which was very well received by players in the midst of the pandemic, as it could be played from home. If you liked this celebration, you will love this news, as there are clues that indicate that Niantic is preparing a new edition, focused on Johto.
Although the Kanto Tour was taken as a great way to celebrate 25 years of the series, honestly, it was normal to think that there would also be editions focused on the other regions of the franchise. Johto is the one that debuted next, and Niantic appears to have plans to hold it next year, in what appears to be a new kind of annual event.

Will there be Johto’s Tour in Pokémon GO?
You may wonder why we are thinking the above. While Niantic has not said anything about it, it has shared a clue in a recent statement that suggests so. The company published the announcement of Season 10 of the GO Fighting League (competitive component of the game) and in it the Johto Cup was revealed.
Pokémon GOIn case you don’t know, hold Themed Cups in the GO Fighting League when big events are taking place. Thus, the Sinoh Cup will be organized in early 2022 to celebrate the premiere of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Passion Cup for Valentine’s Day, and the Johto Cup … it has to be related to something of Johto, obviously.
In case you missed it: Now you can change Hoopa to his Unleashed form in Pokémon GO, but hurry if you want to do it for free!
However, for these dates there is no launch or Johto event scheduled, which suggests that it is a new Pokémon GO Tour, which will celebrate Generation II of the franchise, following the line of annual celebrations that began in 2021 with the Pokémon GO Kanto Tour.
This event took place on February 20, 2021, so it seems that Niantic would celebrate the new Tour on a similar date, taking into account that the Johto Cup will be celebrated in the week of February 21 to 28, so It is possible that the event will take place on Saturday, February 26, 2022, if we take into account that the Kanto Tour was held on a Saturday.
What surprises could there be on the Johto Tour of Pokémon GO?
The Kanto Tour was very attractive to both Niantic and the players. The developer enabled the shiny or variocolor versions of all the creatures within Pokémon GO and guaranteed the capture of one Mew and one Ditto per player in exchange for a ticket and completing an investigation.
When paying for the entrance, users also enjoyed encounters with all 151 Kanto Pokémon, although the appearance was divided according to the version that was chosen (Red or Blue). Apart from that there were many bonuses and gifts. The event was very positive for Niantic as well, as it generated huge profits.
That said, there could be something similar on the Johto Tour. One could expect the enabling of all the Pokémon of this generation in their shiny form, which means that they could be found both in the event and later. The interesting thing would be to see if there would be a research distribution of a new shiny Pokémon. Let’s remember that all the legendaries of this region in their shiny form can already be captured in the game, including Celebi, the singular creature that debuted in its pink form with an event months ago and that, therefore, many players already have.
We suggest you take this as a possibility, since so far Niantic has not confirmed a second edition of the Tour by regions. We will keep you informed.
