The global Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event has finally arrived, and one of the biggest features is a rotating habitat schedule with different Pokemon spawning in each one.

Whether you're taking a stroll along the Bustling Boardwalk or exploring the Toxic Digs, it's a good idea to study the schedule and plan for each habitat so you know which Pokemon you need to focus on catching in the game.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh habitat schedule

Here are all of the habitats you can enjoy and the Pokemon you can encounter in them:

You'll also be able to encounter Pikachu wearing Lucas’s hat and Pikachu wearing Dawn’s hat during Bustling Boardwalk and Toxic Digs, and then Pikachu wearing Rei’s cap and Pikachu wearing Akari’s kerchief during Ancient Grove and Geothermal Lagoon.

This schedule will run on each Trainer's local time, so the habitats above will be accurate for everyone - unlike some previous events which ran on a unified global schedule, making it trickier to plan ahead.

Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh Incense spawns

If you use an Incense during event hours, you can encounter the following Pokemon:

Habitat Pokemon

Bustling Boardwalk & Toxic Digs

Unown H, Unown I, Unown N, Unown O, and Unown S

Ancient Grove & Geothermal Lagoon

Unown H, Unown I, Unown S, and Unown U

In case you hadn't guessed, these are the Unowns you need to spell out Sinnoh and Hisui - both of which are the focus of this event! Even better, all of these Unowns can be encountered as Shiny variants.

Every hour during the global Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh event, a different habitat will take over with themed Pokemon spawns eg. the Poison/Bug-type Skorupi appearing in the Toxic Digs habitat.

You can encounter all of the Pokemon listed for each habitat in the wild, but some will be rarer than others, so you might need to do a lot of exploring or revisit a habitat the next time it rolls around to get what you need.

Incense spawns work the same way as wild spawns, except you'll need to use an Incense to encounter them during their specified habitat. You can't use a Daily Adventure Incense to get these event-themed spawns.

Habitats will run from 10AM to 6PM on both Saturday and Sunday during Pokemon GO Tour: Sinnoh. This means you'll have a total of four chances to enjoy each habitat over the weekend.

If it's Shiny Pokemon you're hunting, we've got a guide for all the new Shinies debuting during this event.
