Event Pokémon (GO)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to navigationJump to search

In Pokémon GO, Event Pokémon, also known as costumed Pokémon, are special forms that have appeared during various events for a limited time. These forms are usually an otherwise-normal Pokémon with an event-relevant costume. Some Event Pokémon can potentially be Shiny as well, or know event-exclusive moves. Some Event Pokémon can evolve, and will retain their costume after doing so. Since July 2021, event forms (except Clone Pokémon) have their own category in the Pokédex of Pokémon GO. Since Event Pokémon are unique to Pokémon GO, they cannot be transferred to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon HOME.

As of December 31, 2022, there are 73 Pokémon with event-exclusive forms, and there are 163 Event Pokémon in total. (This includes 153 Pokémon categorized in the Event Pokédex, 4 Clone Pokémon, 3 additional form variations for event-exclusive Pumpkaboo, and 3 additional form variations for event-exclusive Gourgeist.)
