Ruby vs. Sapphire Challenge
As earth and sea clash, you’ll have to pick a side! All trainers will need to pick between a Ruby and Sapphire Badge, and the team you pick will shape your Pokémon encounters. Trainers who attend the Las Vegas in-person event will pick their badge in Vegas, and it will carry over into the global event.
Primal Kyogre and Groudon debut
Primal Kyogre and Groudon will be making waves and crashing into Pokémon GO for the first time! Primal Reversion is said to restore a Pokémon’s true powers as it absorbs the energy of nature to greatly increase its power, making these two Legendary Pokémon more powerful than ever!
