New pieces of featured music inspired by Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, will be in-game during the Hoenn Tour. These pieces were created by Junichi Masuda, Pokémon video game series composer and Chief Creative Fellow of The Pokémon Company!
Global Tour Shiny Rate
Niantic has confirmed to website Eurogamer that no other ticket will be sold as part of Hoenn Tour, and that shiny rates will be boosted for select species without a ticket. The ticketed portion of the event only impacts the access to the shiny Jirachi Masterwork Research.
This means that unlike previous Pokémon GO Tour events, it is free and open to all players. We don’t know which species will be affected by this shiny boost, or what the rate of the shiny boost will be, but there will be an increase for some Pokémon, not all.
