New Pokémon: Coifwaff celebrates its release at Fashion Week. It belongs to the “normal” type and comes from the 6th generation. The special thing is that with Coiffwaff, a new function, the form-changing mechanism, is published in Pokémon GO. You can find out more about this below in the article.
Pokémon with costumes: Smettbo, Sniebel and Elezeba wear fashionable costumes for the first time in Pokémon GO. However, you will also meet Kussilla, Kirlia, Sheinux and Glibunkel with costumes that already appeared in costumes for the last Fashion Week.
Dataminers showed costumes for Fashion Week 2021.
Besondere Shinys: With luck you can find dazzling Smettbo, Sniebel, Kussilla, Kirlia, Sheinux, Glibunkel or Elezeba – and all in costumes. After Fashion Week, you can still meet dazzling Elezeba without a costume. However, elezebas rarely remain in the wild.
Special trainer encounters: According to Niantic, “fashion-conscious trainers” with even more “fashion-conscious Pokémon” will appear again and again during the event. You can fight them.
Raids: You will meet the following costumed bosses at the fashion event in Raids:
|Level 5||You won’t find any here
|Mega||You won’t find any here
Pokémon from 7km Eggs: Alola Meowth, Galar Meowth, Kussilla and Sheinux in fashionable costumes.
Special research with Hoopa: Yes, you read that right. For Fashion Week 2021, special research with Hoopa, misunderstood joke, is finally going into the next round. There is also a hint from Niantic:
Special research: Complete the special research to deserve an encounter with Meloetta and his beautiful singing. If you attended the Pokémon GO Fest 2021, you will receive Meloetta candies instead for completing this new special research.
Temporary research: Complete the Temporary Research for a chance to encounter fashionable Event Pokémon! You can also earn an exclusive Coiffwaff wig as a reward. Good news for trainers who were unable to complete the research during the event: The Coiffwaff wig will be available in the shop after the event from Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. CEST (1:00 p.m. PDT). Starting Monday, September 20, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. CEST (1:00 p.m. PDT), Fashion Week avatar items such as Hoopa bangles will be available in the shop!
At the shop: You can find fashionable avatar items in the Pokémon GO shop to match the event.
