Pokémon Go Fashion Week 2021 event guide


Fashion Week is taking over Pokémon Go again this year, bringing out Pokémon in fancy little outfits, and introducing the poodle-like Furfrou to the game. Our Pokémon Go Fashion Week event guide will list out the Timed Research, high spawn Pokémon, and Field Research steps.

As expected with the yearly Fashion Week event, new Pokémon in special outfits have been added to the game, including Blitzle and Butterfree. In addition to this, a new Special Research Task with Meloetta has been added. This event also adds another segment to the Hoopa research.

The event runs from Sept. 21-28.
