There currently aren’t any Ultra Beasts running wild in Pokémon GO, so it’s the perfect time to bring back a yearly fall event – the Fashion Week event!

Costumed Pokémon are back with hats, bows, collars, and sunglasses this year. Some previously Fashion Week Costumed Pokémon will be walking the runway again, alongside some new Costumed Pokémon (Diglett, Dugtrio, Absol, and Toxicroak) and Alola region’s Mareanie and Toxapex.

Get all the details here with our Fashion Week 2022 event guide:

 

Pokémon GO’s Season of Light – Fashion Week

Begins: Tuesday, September 27th, 2022 at 10 a.m. your local time.

Ends: Monday, October 3rd, 2022 at 8 p.m. your local time.

 

Pokémon debuts – Costumed Pokémon, Mareanie, and Toxapex

 

 

Fashion Week is back! Previous Costumed Pokémon from previous Fashion Week events are returning: Butterfree, Croagunk, Blitzle, Kirlia, Shinx, and Smoochum. In the new additions department, Trainers can evolve Costumed Croagunk into Costumed Toxicroak for the first time! You’ll also find Costumed Diglett (which can be evolved into Costumed Dugtrio) and Costumed Absol in the wild, Raids, and via Timed Research encounters during this year’s event.

With all the Costumed Pokémon out and about strutting their stuff, you might’ve missed a brand new addition to Pokémon GO! Mareanie (and their evolved form Toxapex) are debuting in Pokémon GO thanks to this event.

 

Notes:

  • Pokémon marked with an * means that “If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!”
