Why is the sky purple in Pokémon Go?

Pokémon Go is in a constant state of evolution, and players have recently observed one of the most significant changes: the intermittent appearance of a new purple sky during ongoing events.

Considering that Pokémon Go Tour: Sinnoh is currently underway, encountering phenomena like this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. However, understanding its significance might not be immediately evident. The reassuring news is that this purple sky is a positive occurrence, and its cause is quite straightforward. Before you panic, here’s the scoop on Pokémon Go’s purple sky.

The appearance of the purple sky in Pokémon Go is intricately linked to the newly introduced Space-Time Anomaly mechanic featured in the Pokémon Go Tour: Sinnoh – Global event. Each day throughout the event, the sky transitions to purple during the active habitat hours. This feature operates within two habitats: the Ancient Grove and the Geothermal Lagoon. During these periods, you’ll encounter Pokémon from the Hisui region, which will be available for capture.

Hisui Pokémon will emerge in the wild and through raids exclusively during the periods when Space-Time Anomalies are active. This includes a plethora of new shiny variants and other distinctive Pokémon, making it an ideal opportunity to capture them. Remember, you won’t encounter them in any other habitats, so seize the chance during the Ancient Grove and Geothermal Lagoon hours.

It remains uncertain when the purple sky will reappear in Pokémon Go after the conclusion of the Pokémon Go Tour: Sinnoh – Global event, so be sure to take full advantage of it while it lasts.
