Primal Reversion has been discovered in Pokémon GO!

Trainers,

Something big is coming…

Primal Reversion has been discovered in Pokémon GO, and Trainers can experience it for the first time during Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas! Primal Reversion is a phenomenon powered by natural energy that transforms select Pokémon, which gives them a new appearance, improves their performance in battle, and more!

Primal Reversion has been observed in two Pokémon to date: the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon, originally discovered in the Hoenn region.

A brand-new power

When you collect enough Primal Energy, Kyogre and Groudon will be able to undergo Primal Reversion.

You can earn Primal Energy by defeating Primal Kyogre or Primal Groudon in a Raid Battle or by completing specific research tasks.

After undergoing Primal Reversion, Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon will stay in their primal form for eight hours, after which they will return to their standard form. The more times your Pokémon undergoes Primal Reversion, the less Primal Energy will be used.

New Bonuses

You’ll receive bonuses when your Kyogre or Groudon reverts to its primal form!

When Primal Kyogre is in your party, Water-, Electric-, and Bug-type attacks will benefit from attack bonuses in raids.
When Primal Kyogre is your buddy, catching Water-, Electric-, and Bug-type Pokémon will grant you additional XP and Candy.
When Primal Groudon is in your party, Fire-, Grass-, and Ground-type attacks will benefit from attack bonuses in raids.
When Primal Groudon is your buddy, catching Fire-, Grass-, and Ground-type Pokémon will grant you additional XP and Candy.
Kyogre and Groudon’s Primal Level will increase the more times they revert to their primal forms, improving their bonuses.
You can see a Pokémon’s Primal Level and the bonuses granted by that level by navigating to the Pokémon’s page and tapping the Primal Level icon.

A new Pokédex category

The Pokédex category for Mega Pokémon will be updated to include Pokémon that have undergone Primal Reversion!

Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn

Encounter Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon in Primal Raids during specific periods, beginning with Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas. Primal Raids are similar to normal Raid Battles, but the Pokémon you challenge will be more powerful than those you may have encountered previously.

Trainers will also have opportunities during both Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas and Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global to complete Primal Surge Field Research, which may lead to increased opportunities to encounter Primal Kyogre or Primal Groudon in raids.

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change. Be sure to follow us on social media, opt in to receiving push notifications, and subscribe to our emails to stay updated.
