Here's what happened during the Pokemon Go: Johto Tour 2022 event. Players got access both for free and with the purchase of a ticket. The purchase allowed you to participate in the Special Research of the tour, which can be completed at any time even after the event is over, but it is advisable to complete during these 12 hours.
As part of the search, ticket holders can choose one of the 3 Johto starters, Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile, according to their preference. At the beginning of the Pokémon GO adventure, the starter to choose belonged to Kanto, so this is a nice change.
The Johto 2022 Tour Special Research consists of 9 steps, to be completed consecutively, which will give specific rewards. The latter are influenced, in part, by the choice of the starter, but also choosing the Gold or Silver version involves substantial differences.
Each of the two versions features exclusive Pokémon, and once you have chosen Gold or Silver, it is no longer possible to switch.
