Niantic Announces Plans For Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Make-Up Event

Niantic has announced the full details for the upcoming Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Make-up Event. This will be a bonus strictly for those who paid for the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto ticket after a mishap during the event allowed some trainers who did not pay to acquire the ticketed Special Research for free. Rather than this make-up mimicking the event as the make-up events for GO Fest 2020 and Dragon Week did last year, Niantic will instead offer a month-long Timed Research that will include quite the laundry list of useful items. Let's get into the details, directly from Pokémon GO.
