The Test Your Mettle event in Pokémon GO will come to an end soon, and there will be a bit of a break with events happening in-game. However, Niantic is still working on the next Pokémon GO event – the Fashion Week event!
Fashion Week-themed Costume Pokémon are back! For the first time, some Pokémon will be launching their own shop in the Alola region – Mareanie (and Toxapex) on Tuesday, September 27th, 2022.
The following new additions to the Costumed Pokémon category will be released this year: Diglett and Dugtrio wearing a bowler hat, Absol wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses, and Toxicroak wearing a backwards baseball cap. (Note: Niantic refers to Fashion Week Pokémon as "Pokémon wearing a stylish costume," but I need to add some flair to the text and mention what they're actually wearing.)
If Toxicroak sounds familiar, it's because Croagunk wearing a backwards baseball cap debuted last year and will be making a return this year: Butterfree with a bow, Kirlia with a bowler hat and bow, Shinx with a bowler hat, and Smoochum with a bow.
Gothita, Frillish (Female-only), Eevee, Skitty, Glameow, Furfrou, Scraggy, and Mega Lopunny will be there during the event.
It wouldn't be Fashion Week without some new trainer threads. A Mareanie-inspired outfit and a black and white outfit will be available through the in-game shop for Trainers shortly.
Before the Fashion Week event begins next week, enjoy the next few event-free days in Pokémon GO by discovering the Season of Light's seasonal Pokémon in the wild, Raids, and eggs.
