The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Longchamp Paris to release a Pokemon-themed fashion collection, and Pokemon Go is celebrating the collaboration with its own fashion-themed event next month.
Starting October 2 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET, “fashionable” Pokemon will be appearing in the wild, Raid Battles, and hatching from eggs more frequently than normal. Many of the pocket monsters will be sporting top hats, caps, bows, and other accessories: Smoochum wearing bows will hatch from 7 km eggs, while Kirlia and Shinx wearing top hats will appear as Raid bosses. You’ll also find the following Pokemon more frequently in the wild:
- Croagunk (wearing a backwards cap)
On top of that, you’ll have a chance to encounter Shiny Kricketot during the event. Event-exclusive Field Research tasks will also be available, and a free Longchamp bag for your avatar–based on one of the real fashion items being released–will be available from Pokemon Go’s in-game style shop. The fashion event runs until 10 PM PT on October 8.
