Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Pokémon GO key art

Niantic has revealed the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl event for Pokémon GO, which will celebrate the launch of the generation four remakes next week. The event is scheduled to take place from Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. to Sunday, November 21, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time. The Sinnoh region is obviously home to a ton of fan favorites, so expect to see some of them appearing more frequently in the wild. Just like with past events, costumed variations of certain Pokémon will be available, with this one allowing players to capture Chimchar, Turtwig, or Piplup wearing Lucas or Dawn’s hat. You will also be able to find Cresslia in five-star raids, as well as other Sinnoh Pokémon in other raid categories.

Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl take over Pokémon GO

The first half of the Pokémon GO event will feature Pokémon exclusive to Brilliant Diamond, such as Stunky and Murkrow. Additionally, the costumed starter Pokémon will be wearing Lucas’ hat during this portion of the event. On Thursday, Shining Pearl will take over, allowing players to capture version exclusives from that game, such as Glameow and Misdreavus. Just like with the Brilliant Diamond section, Shining Pearl‘s segment will allow you to capture the costumed starter Pokémon wearing Dawn’s hat instead.

Furthermore, a collection challenge focused on the costumed Pokémon will also be available, so be sure to track them down throughout both sections of the event.

There will be plenty of avatar items to choose from as well. You will be able to equip your trainer with a Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup costume, as well as the trainer attire featured in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. These items can be purchased from Monday, November 15, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. PST and will be available until the end of the event. Also, event-themed stickers featuring Pokémon from the Sinnoh Region will be obtainable from PokéStops and the in-game shop. If you’re running short on Poké Balls and Incubators, two Event Boxes can be purchased using PokéCoins from the shop.
