Pokémon Go's next event celebrates the Kanto region

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

The nostalgia may leave you feeling Blue.

Pokémon Go is getting a new event that will celebrate the Kanto region, home to the original 151 Pokémon.

Starting from tomorrow, April 11 and running until April 18, the original 151 Pokémon will spawn in much greater numbers, letting you hunt down critters from the Red, Blue and Yellow games with a bit more ease.

Snorlax and Aerodactyl will become available to battle and catch in raids, and the three starters, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, will be much easier to find.

Double candy when catching and transferring will be active, and the in-game shop will offer event boxes with raid passes in.
Sharp-eyed Pokémon Go fans have already spotted that new shiny variants are being snuck into the game, so we wouldn’t be surprised if more arrived during this event.
