Gen VI Pokemon Arrive in Pokemon GO during Kalos Event

Gen VI Pokemon are headed to Pokemon GO in a week-long event, but don't worry. They'll stick around once it's done.

Bust out the Lumoise Galette, 'cause Kalos is coming to Pokemon GO.

Niantic is running a special event from now until December 8 at 10 p.m. to introduce Gen VI Pokemon in Pokemon GO, with increased chances of encountering certain 'mon in Eggs, Raids, and wild encounters.

During the event, Trainers have higher chances of encountering Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Bunnelby, Fletchling, Litleo, and Noibat in the wild.

Klefki will also appear in the wild, but only in France (though some of us won't complain about that).

All these Pokemon will still appear in the wild after the event, just with normal encounter rates.

The Egg part of the event includes new Pokemon hatching from all three Egg types.

  • 2km Eggs: Bunnelby, Fletchling, and Litleo
  • 5km Eggs: Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie
  • 10km Eggs: Espurr and Noibat

As with the wild Pokemon, all these will still be potential hatchlings once the event ends.

Finally, Litleo and Espurr will show up in special one-star Raids.

As always with new events, the Kalos Pokemon GO event adds special Timed and Field Research tasks where Trainers can encounter Bunnelby and Fletchling and get Mega Energy for Blastoise, Charizard, and Venusaur as a reward.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
