COVID-19 negatively affected everything in the world, including online video games events. A year ago, Niantic planned to organize the Air Adventures event, also known as Shiny Corsola debut.
However, the whole event was deferred to a later date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, Niantic has officially confirmed that the Pokémon Air Adventures event will commence on March 19, 20222 coupled with global collaboration in May 2022.
Air Adventures Global Wild Encounters
Pikachu wearing an Okinawa kariyushi shirt will be appearing in the wild in Okinawa! This special Pikachu will be appearing starting on Saturday, March 19, 2022, and will be available for over a year!
Along with Pikachu wearing an Okinawa kariyushi shirt, keep an eye out for Corsola! In Japan, Corsola can be found only in some areas, including Okinawa.
*If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one!
Special Pokémon Air Adventures PokéStops
In Okinawa, Trainers will be able to discover new PokéStops at Poké Lids (special Pokémon-themed maintenance-hole covers) and various Okinawan tourist sites.
Gifts at these PokéStops will include in-game Postcard illustrations not available anywhere else, so make sure to visit as many of them as you can!
