Furfrou Debuts in Pokémon GO during Fashion Week 2021

Check out the new form-change mechanic, complete Special Research, and catch stylishly costumed Pokémon during this weeklong event.

Don your finest attire, because Pokémon GO Fashion Week is here! Fashionable Pokémon will be strutting their stuff from Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time, with the fiercely fabulous Furfrou making its Pokémon GO debut. Originally discovered in Kalos, the Poodle Pokémon can take on several stylish Trims. In Pokémon GO, you'll be able to choose your Furfrou's appearance, too!

You'll first encounter Furfrou in its Natural Form. From there, select Furfrou in your Pokémon storage, and then tap Change Form to see the available Trims. Changing your Furfrou's Trim will require 25 Furfrou Candies and 10,000 Stardust. The Matron Trim and Dandy Trim will be available everywhere, while other Trims will be available depending on your location.

Furfrou isn't the only stylish Pokémon appearing during this event. You can find costumed Pokémon appearing in the wild, including Butterfree, Sneasel, Kirlia, and Blitzle. Costumed Sneasel and Shinx will be appearing in one-star raids, and costumed Butterfree and Kirlia will appear in three-star raids. Pokémon hatching from 7 km Eggs will include Alolan Meowth, Galarian Meowth, costumed Smoochum, and costumed Shinx. And if you're really lucky, you might find a Shiny Pokémon like Butterfree, Sneasel, Smoochum, Kirlia, Shinx, Croagunk, or Blitzle, all of which will be wearing costumes.

During the event, the next part of the season-long Misunderstood Mischief Special Research story will unlock. You can also look forward to another Special Research story featuring Meloetta! If you haven't yet caught the Melody Pokémon, you'll be able to encounter it in this Special Research story. If you have already encountered Meloetta, you'll earn Meloetta Candy instead.

If you're looking to glamorize your avatar, you can complete event-exclusive Timed Research to earn the Furfrou Wig avatar item. Starting Monday, September 20, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7), you'll also be able to pick up other Fashion Week avatar items in the shop, such as the Hoopa Bangles.

Fashion Challengers and their equally stylish Pokémon will be appearing at PokéStops. Battle them to earn rewards.

Get out there and strut your stuff, Trainers—for Furfrou, for fashion, and for fun!
