Mere days from the official start of Spring in the Northern hemisphere, but it seems that we're traveling back to 2018 and the days of Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. We have an event covering the Mythical Pokemon Meltan, as well as a new Rocket Takeover to look forward to, so this should be an interesting event to keep an eye on.
