Fashion Week 2023 is a special Pokémon GO event that runs from November 15 through November 19, 2023, and brings new costumed and shiny Pokémon to the world of Pokémon GO.

Costumed Pokémon include Dragonite (first Dragonite costume!), Wooper, Quagsire, Pikachu, Diglett, Croagunk, Absol and more. Pokémon are wearing different costumes, some are wearing hats, some glasses, and some even bow ties!

As far as new Shiny Pokémon go, for the first time in Pokémon GO, you’ll be able to encounter Shiny Gothita-if you’re lucky!
