This makes them great additions to Pokémon Go where you prefer the defensive battle-based gameplay of Mons.

New fashionable outfits have been added for a number of Pokemon

As Real-Life Fashion Week approaches, a number of Pokemon costumes to be worn will be added from September 27 through October 3.

Diglett, Dugtrio, Absol, and Toxicroak outfits will appear in the wild, and can also be obtained at Timed Research.

Butterfree, Croagunk, Blitzle, and Kirlia can also be found in the wild.

Croagunk and Blitzle will also be available via field research missions.

Eggs up to 7 kilometers long can hatch Pokemon with clothes. These are Diglett, Smoochum, Croagunk and Shinx.

Pokémon in finished clothes can be found in raids.

Diglett, Shinx, and Croagunk will participate in one-star raids, while Butterfree, Kirlia, and Absol will participate in three-star raids.

Taking snapshots of Pokémon this week will increase the chance of Pokémon appearing in costume.

Familiar Pokemon will appear more often

A number of Niantic Pokemon thought to be fashionable will pop up with increasing regularity.

In the wild: Mareanie, Toxapex, Murkrow, Glameow, Gothita, Female Frillish, and Furfrou can be found.
