The Pokemon Company is partnering with Longchamp Paris to release a Pokemon-themed fashion collection in stores this month, and to celebrate the collaboration, Pokemon Go is holding its own in-game fashion-themed event right now.
Until 10 PM PT on October 8, “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
