Pokémon GO Global Challenge 2019 announced with Shiny Suicune, Shiny Entei and Shiny Raikou encounter rewards

This year’s Pokémon GO Global Challenge has been announced with Shiny Suicune, Shiny Entei and Shiny Raikou as new encounter rewards. Read on below for all the details:

Are you ready for Professor Willow’s Global Challenge?

Trainers,

Attention, Team Instinct, Mystic, and Valor Trainers!

Get ready for a Global Challenge like you’ve never experienced before! This year, Professor Willow has tasked Spark, Blanche, and Candela to take on new challenges and grow as leaders. While they’re already accomplished Pokémon GO Trainers, the professor wants to make sure they’re ready to take on any trouble that might come their way.

Each team leader will be responsible for rallying Trainers to complete research both around the world and at each of the three Pokémon GO Fest events this summer. Complete the Global Challenge research alongside the Trainers at every Pokémon GO Fest, and unlock exciting bonuses designed by none other than your very own team leaders the following week! If all three teams and the event attendees meet the research goals, a special bonus Raid Day will be unlocked during the bonus week. And if all goals are met by the end of summer, an even more exciting bonus will be unlocked!

The professor believes that Spark, Blanche, and Candela are ready to take on such a responsibility, and we hope you’re excited to support them. Read the details carefully, Trainers, and prepare yourselves!
