Are you a fan of high-fashion? It seems that Niantic is, as they're once again trying their hand at "fashion" in Pokemon Go. Like last year, we can look forward to new costumed Pokemon and old fan favorites returning... oh dear, and it also seems that Mareanie and Tooxapex are coming along at long last. Brace yourselves, because PvP may be on its way to yet another shift!

Trainers,

Mareanie and several Pokémon sporting the latest fashions are making their runway debuts in Pokémon GO! Furfrou also makes its return to shine on stage in its various forms.

Keep a sharp eye out for other stylish Pokémon that are ready to trend in the wild, through research tasks, and from Eggs.

In proper Fashion Week style, the in-game shop will have new avatar items fresh off the catwalk, along with a sale on select avatar items so Trainers can be as hip as their Buddy Pokémon!
