Everything else you need to know about Fashion Week in Pokémon Go
Fashion Week marks the release of Furfrou, the poodle inspired Gen 6 Pokémon, into Pokémon Go. Furfrou is captured in its natural form. However, depending upon where you live, you can give it a variety if trims with Candy or Stardust.
Thanks to Finding Your Voice, players who didn’t purchase a Go Fest 2021 ticket can now add the mythical Meloetta to their Pokédex. This quest will give you additional Meloetta Candy, if you participated in Go Fest.
Time to add Furfrou and Meloetta to your Pokédex!
Blitzle, Butterfree and Sneasel have new costume forms in keeping with Fashion Week. You can also catch the costume Pokémon from last year’s Fashion Week – Smoochum, Kirlia, Shinx and Croagunk – and all of these costumed Pokémon will have shiny forms available.
These Pokémon will be appearing in the wild, but you’ll also be able to fight costume Sneasel and Shinx in one-star raids, while costume Butterfree and Kirlia will be in three-star raids.
You can catch last year’s Fashion Week Pokémon too.
