New Pokémon reveal and Pokémon GO event incoming

Don’t get too hyped – generation eight is probably not yet confirmed. Pokémon GO will celebrate Kanto, while Ampharos gains a Dragon Move.

A trio of news has arrived today. New footage of the next Pokémon movie, Everyone’s Story, are to be released on Monday the 9th of April, as reported by A key aspect is that a new Pokémon will be revealed!

Don’t get too excited though – it’s likely that this Pokémon is a new generation seven Pokémon that dataminers have already discovered lurking in the game files of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Nonetheless, a new creature which will eventually get a release is cause for interest and excitement.

Meanwhile, for Pokémon GO, Niantic announced that evolving a Flaaffy into Ampharos during the three-hour window will grant you the move of Dragon Pulse. For those confused about this choice of move, recall that Ampharos has a Dragon typing bestowed on it through Mega Evolution in the main series titles, and its Japanese name can be translated as ‘electric dragon’.

In a recent email to players subscribed to their mailing list, Niantic also teased an event on the 10th of April involving Kanto Pokémon.

Trainers, starting April 10, we’ll be hosting a special celebration in honor of the Kanto region in Pokémon GO! Keep your eyes on the official Pokémon GO website and social media channels for more information surrounding this event.

What could it be? We’ll find out soon enough. Are you keen on these Pokémon GO events, or are your eyes only set on the new Pokémon reveal?
