Now, a popular new addition to the event schedule is being teased.

Pokemon GO‘s “GO Tour” events have so far each focused on a different region from the franchise, highlighting a variety of different creatures. This year’s GO Tour: Hoenn saw players able to pick up the primal forms of Hoenn legendaries Groudon and Kyogre for the first time, first featured in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Many fans have waited anxiously for news about next year’s event, expected to focus around Diamond and Pearl‘s Sinnoh region. Now, Niantic is sharing some of the first details about the upcoming event.

Niantic officially revealed the first location for “Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh” on Wednesday, confirming the event for the US West Coast. The post confirmed that the Los Angeles event for Pokemon GO will be held on the weekend of February 17 and 18 at the Rose Bowl Stadium. Niantic has also previously shared some details about the event, revealing that users buying tickets to the Los Angeles event will receive a Masterwork Research with a Shiny Shaymin as the reward. Early bird tickets to the event are available now through December 31 for $25 USD through Niantic’s official website.
