Pokémon Go Tour: Live is returning to Pokémon Go this year, offering players in certain areas of the world chances to catch rare Pokémon in large quantities. Like previous iterations of the event, a one-time purchasable pass will give players access to a full day of bonuses and rewards.

On Feb. 27 from 10am to 6pm local time, players in Mexico and Taiwan can partake in the 2022 Pokémon Go Tour: Live, aligning with the 26th anniversary of the series. In Mexico, the event will be held in Monterrey at Parque Fundidora, while in Taiwan, it will be held in Kaohsiung at the Taiwan Lantern Festival.

A pass for $25 will provide players with access to exclusive benefits, including special research and Snorlax encounters when taking pictures. This special research will provide players with a plethora of helpful items and an encounter with Mewtwo. Ticketed players can also find Shiny Pokémon and Ditto more often in the wild, with Shiny Ditto appearance rates also being increased.

Players that do not purchase the pass will have access to event-wide bonuses, which include Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros spawning in the wild, as well as Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres appearing in five-star raids. They will not receive the increased Shiny rates that ticketed players receive, however.

Pokémon Go Tour: Live will take place in Monterrey, Mexico and Kaohsiung, Taiwan on Feb. 27. The day before, players around the world can partake in Pokémon Go Tour 2022, featuring Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Gold and Silver. Jan 29, 2022 12:47 pm

The early indications for Shiny rates for Pokémon are pretty promising for those who love to attempt to complete a Shiny Pokédex. The base rate for Shiny Pokémon seems to still be the standard 1/4096 that most recent Pokémon titles have. But to increase Shiny odds, the Shiny Charm is often the first step.

How and where to get the Shiny Charm in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

To get the Shiny Charm, you have to complete your Pokédex and reach Research Level 10 on all Pokémon in the Pokédex. This is a big undertaking: there are 242 Pokémon in the Pokédex, and all of them need to be researched to level 10 before you can get the Shiny Charm.

Once a Pokémon’s research level is at 10, the Pokédex entry is considered complete. However, the rare spawns of some of the Pokémon and the several tasks required to research a Pokémon all the way to level 10 can make meeting the requirements for the Shiny Charm into a herculean task.

When you’ve completed the Pokédex after finishing the game, head back to Jubilife Village and go to the Galaxy Hall. Talk to the Professor, and a cutscene will play. During the cutscene, you will receive the Shiny Charm.

According to Serebii, the base rate for Shiny Pokémon is 1/4096. It’s then lowered to 1/2048 when all Pokémon in the Pokédex are researched to level 10 and is lowered further to 1/1024 when the research is perfect. With the Shiny Charm, rates are even lower. The Shiny Charm plus all Pokémon at level 10 research is a 1/819 chance, while perfect research of all Pokémon in the Pokédex plus the Shiny Charm results in a 1/585 chance.
