The Johto Tour is just around the corner in Pokemon Go and as a preliminary, the game has launched the Poke Ball Prep Rally event. In this, players can participate in research and bonuses in order to stock up on Poke Balls for the Johto event. Themed around Ball-shaped Pokemon, this is one you definitely don’t want to miss.
Hisuian Electrode Is Here
Recently, Pokemon Go brought on Hisuian Voltorb, a regional variant of the Kanto Electric-type Pokemon that was introduced in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Resembling the game’s signature wooden Poke Ball, Voltorb came to Go without its evolution at first. The Poke Ball event has officially added Hisuian Electrode, so you can now go ahead and evolve any Hisuian Voltorb you have provided you have enough candies.
More Pokemon Appearing In The Wild
For this event, round-shaped Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild. This includes Koffing, Electrode, both forms of Voltorb, Wailmer, Marill, Stunfisk, Amoonguss, Foongus, Solosis, and Jigglypuff.
