A see all button for the store.


A Pinsir raid day seems interesting.  These tend to have mixed reactions, people who don’t have the Pokémon as shiny love the idea and those who do seem indifferent.  How do you feel?

Are you buying a Throwback Research Ticket?  If you are, are you buying it because you didn’t finish one of the timed researches or because you want the extra candies?

That’s all for now, stay safe out there trainers!
