Parting Thoughts

This is a first-of-a-kind collaboration that celebrates the monumental Pokémon TCG into Pokémon Go in its own way. A new Pokémon that needs grinding to evolve into a beast, excellent spawns and raid bosses, a chance at Shiny Meltan, and the ever-prized Mewtwo for two weeks with a chance to get both Shadow Ball and Psystrike separately. What’s not to like?! 

Have fun and enjoy the event, Trainers! 😀
