"Pokemon GO" recently announced that there would be a kind of "Throwback" event to commemorate Generation I's influence on the entire landscape of the franchise with the Tour Kanto Event that would come in 2021. The event would require a player to purchase a ticket to join the different features and functions in 2021's celebration of the game's most popular edition.

The "Pokemon GO" Tour Kanto Event would bring back the old school Pokemon Red and Green games that popularized the Pokemon franchise in the world. 

According to Pokemon GO Live's website, the Kanto Event would be a culmination of two celebrations from the franchise that sparked the global craze on the "kawaii" (Japanese for "cute") pocket monsters launched in the early 90s. The anniversary of both Pokemon and Pokemon GO's release in February would mark the event's start, featuring the region where the franchise started, Kanto. 

The event features two separate and equally-unique experiences with the Pokemon Red and Green options to choose from. Each ticket is priced at $11.99, offering the pass to experience PokeWorld's Generation I once again. 

Like its Nintendo Game Boy's counterpart game, "Pokemon Red" and "Pokemon Green" each have its unique feature and exclusive freebies, items, Pokemon, etc., to receive in playing the game. The present generation's AR "Pokemon GO" would mimic the same offers, with different inclusions on either Poke version.
