The big, one-day event catch-a-thon Pokémon GO Tour: Johto event is almost here! To prepare, Niantic is hosting a Poké Ball-themed “prep rally” so that Trainers can fill their Item Bag with enough Poké Balls for the big day. That’s not all, as some spherical Pokémon are getting in on the fun. Catch some Voltorb — both its Kanto and Hisuian versions — and even evolve a Hisuian Voltorb into a Hisuian Electrode for the first time!
Check out all the Poké Ball-themed bonuses that will be happening all week long with our guide below:
