Pokemon Go Tour Sinnoh Origin Forme Dialga & Palkia debuts

The main attractions in the Pokemon Go Tour Sinnoh event are the upcoming debuts of Origin Forme Dialga and Palkia. Both Legendaries will make their way into the mobile game through space-time anomalies that will let players challenge them in Raids and use the brand-new Adventure Effects.

Article continues after ad

This new game mechanic gives specific attacks a new effect in the Pokemon Go overworld. Players that get Origin Forme Dialga in Raids during the Go Tour Sinnoh event can get one that knows the attack Roar of Time. The Adventure Effect for Roar of Time temporarily pauses the timer on certain items like Incenses, Lucky Eggs, and Star Pieces.

On the other hand, those who catch Origin Forme Palkia in Raids can get it with the attack Spacial Rend. The Adventure Effect for Spacial Rend temporarily increases the distance at which you can encounter wild Pokemon.

Trainers need to spend Stardust and Candy to activate Adventure Effects in Pokemon Go, so keep that in mind. It’s worth noting that players can’t have two Adventure Effects active at the same time.
