In other P25 news….
Back in February, we were introduced to the different regions of the Pokemon world. The first region to open was the Galar region.
Now, the Alola region has been opened with the Kalos region set to open in May.
The Alola region was first visited by Trainers in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The tropical Alola region was inspired by the state of Hawaii. In this region you will find the Island Challenge which offers Trainer a series of trials that lead to opportunities to battle powerful Totem Pokemon.
If this sounds like something you would love, then head over to the 25th Anniversary website to explore the Alola region.
