Big news for Pokemon GO, just after the GO Fest 2022! And we're not just talking about Adventure Week, coming today. On July 1, 2022, the Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion dedicated to Pokémon GO will be released.
In the coming weeks, a dedicated event will be available in the game, where Wimpod will make its debut! For the first time ever, we will be able to capture a Meltan in a chromatic version: to catch Meltan you need to use the Mystery Box, which can be obtained by sending a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME or to the Nintendo Switch games of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!
o Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! The event will take place from 10:00 on Thursday 16 June 2022 to 20:00 on Thursday 30 June 2022 local time. Wimpod, his evolution Golisopod, and a Pikachu wearing a Pokémon TCG hat will make their debut in the game.
The details of the event
In the card expansion there will also be Lunatone and Solrock, also in their chromatic forms. Thus, these wild Pokémon will appear all over the world throughout the event and, at the end, Lunatone will appear in the western hemisphere and Solrock in the eastern one.
