Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh has finally been revealed, meaning Trainers will be able to enjoy the Diamond & Pearl region for an entire weekend at the end of February 2024.

The annual GO Tour events are some of the most exciting times to play Pokemon GO. We've already revisited the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn regions, and in 2024 it's time to catch Pokemon from the beloved Sinnoh region.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event dates and times

Trainers can enjoy Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh on Saturday, February 24 and Sunday, February 25, 2024. Event hours are 10AM to 6PM local time on both days. This is a free event for anyone to take part in.

There will also be an in-person Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event taking place in Los Angeles on the weekend before, although you'll need to purchase a ticket and be on location to take part in that event.

During the Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event, you'll be able to choose either a Diamond badge or a Pearl badge. Your decision will influence certain rewards and bonuses you get to enjoy, so choose wisely!

Team GO Rocket Special Research story

An event-exclusive Special Research story will be available to claim during the Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event. Similar to last year's An Uneasy Alliance quest, this one will see you team up with Team GO Rocket.

Trainers will be able to purchase a ticket for event-exclusive Masterwork Research leading to an encounter with the Mythical Shiny Shaymin - marking the first time this Shiny has been available in Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh Raid Bosses

The following Raid Bosses will be available to battle during this event:

Tier Raid Bosses
5-Star Raids Dialga & Palkia
3-Star Raids Torterra, Infernape & Empoleon
1-Star Raids Turtwig, Chimchar & Piplup

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh Habitat spawns

There will be four rotating Habitats to experience during Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh, with each one featuring a different lineup of themed wild spawns to encounter.

These are Bustling Boardwalk, Ancient Grove, Toxic Digs, and Geothermal Lagoon. You'll be able to keep track of which Habitat is running by checking the Today View during the event.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh Incense spawns

During event hours, the following Pokemon will be attracted to Incense: Unown H, Unown I, Unown N, Unown O, and Unown S. As you can probably guess, these are the letters required to spell out Sinnoh.

More Pokemon will be attracted to Incense, but they've not been revealed yet.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh Egg pool

The following Pokemon will be able to hatch from Eggs during this event:

Egg Pokemon
2km Eggs Budew, Chingling, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Happiny, Munchlax, Riolu & Mantyke
5km Eggs Stunky, Gible & more
10km Eggs Pachirisu, Chatot & Carnivine

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event bonuses

The following bonuses will be available for all Trainers during event hours:

  • 1/2 Hatch Distance for Eggs placed in Incubators during the event
  • Up to 6 Special Trades can be made each day
  • 1/2 Stardust cost for trades

That's everything that's been confirmed for Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh right now. Usually, more details and features are announced as we approach the event, so keep an eye out for more details!

One of the biggest rumours right now is that Origin Formes for Dialga and Palkia will make their debuts during the event. This would make sense with the Timeless Travels season focusing on Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

These are just rumours for now, but we'll keep this page updated once any new details are revealed.
