As part of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Pokémon, Niantic held a large themed event within Pokémon GO to celebrate the original launch of Pokémon Red and Green through the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto.

However, this virtual event was plagued with problems with players reporting connection issues in different regions of the world, as well as players being unable to access the even that they had paid for.

Thus, after hours of having started, Niantic announced that they would hold an event to compensate for all the problems that occurred during it with the details now being announced.
