The Pokémon GO Park event is live in Yokohama (Japan), featuring a ton of content for Pokémon GO and Pokémon fans.

Let’s cut to the chase: shiny Pikachu is spawning in Yokohama, but there is no indication that it is spawning anywhere else in the world!

In addition, a lot of interesting things is currently happening at the event, such as special Raids that feature new Raid bosses, but we’ll cover those later.

One of our readers, Sharla (star of Sharmander Youtube channel), sent in a couple of images showing her recent catches, including a female shiny Pikachu. Big shoutout to Sharla for sharing the images!

All of the bosses are marked as Tier 4 bosses.
