The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Longchamp Paris to release a Pokemon-themed fashion collection, and Pokemon Go is celebrating the collaboration with its own fashion-themed event next month.
Starting October 2 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET, “fashionable” Pokemon will be appearing in the wild, Raid Battles, and hatching from eggs more frequently than normal. Many of the pocket monsters will be sporting top hats, caps, bows, and other accessories: Smoochum wearing bows will hatch from 7 km eggs, while Kirlia and Shinx wearing top hats will appear as Raid bosses. You’ll also find the following Pokemon more frequently in the wild:
On top of that, you’ll have a chance to encounter Shiny Kricketot during the event. Event-exclusive Field Research tasks will also be available, and a free Longchamp bag for your avatar–based on one of the real fashion items being released–will be available from Pokemon Go’s in-game style shop. The fashion event runs until 10 PM PT on October 8.
In the meantime, Niantic still has a few events in store for Pokemon Go before September ends. The third and final week of the Mega September event runs from September 22-28. The Legendary Articuno has also returned to Raids until September 25, after which it will be replaced by another Legendary bird, Zapdos. Finally, September’s Field Research tasks will be available until September 30, giving you a few more days to encounter this month’s Research Breakthrough reward: Alolan Raichu.
