This means that besides other Legendaries, the Nincada and Clamperl lines, as well as Spinda and Kecleon, will remain absent.

With all these powerful Pokémon to collect, it’s going to be vital to stock up on supplies! Starting February 9th, players will be able to get new special boxes, which contain Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces! You can grab them in-store until February 23rd. Lure Modulators will remain activated for six hours until February 23rd as well!

Are you excited for these new Pokémon? Be sure to set your calendars, and do your best catching all these powerful Pokémon for your collection! Remember, it all starts on February 9th. Happy catching!
