Including all of the new Fashion Week costume Pokémon for 2023!

Fashion Week is back for 2023 in Pokémon Go and has once again brought us a new selection of fashionable costume Pokémon to catch.

This year sees the release of Fashionable Dragonite, Fashionable Wooper and Fashionable Quagsire in Pokémon Go. If you’re really lucky, you may even find shiny versions of these new costume Pokémon!

Everything you need to know about Fashion Week in Pokémon Go

Fashion Week has, as always, introduced a new collection of costume Pokémon to Pokémon Go. This year sees the release of Fashionable Dragonite sporting a bowtie and a little pair of glasses, Fashionable Wooper who’s gone for the classic black beanie look and Fashionable Quagsire who’s copying Wooper’s style. (Be it with a smaller hat.)

Keep in mind that, to get Fashionable Quagsire, you need to evolve a Fashionable Wooper using 50 Wooper Candy. Hopefully you’ll have enough spare thanks to its recent Community Day!

Alongside these new costume Pokémon, there are a number of Fashion Week bonuses to enjoy. The first sees everyone earning double catch Candy, while the second gives players who are Level 31 or above an increased chance of receiving Candy XL from catching Pokémon.

Both of these bonuses will run until Fashion Week ends on Sunday 19th November at 8pm (local time).

This year’s Fashion Week also marks the release of shiny Gothita, alongside its evolutions.

To give you a head start in finding this new shiny variant, Gothita will be appearing more frequently in the wild during Fashion Week alongside the following Pokémon:

  • Summer Flair Pikachu
  • Fashionable Diglett
  • Fashionable Wooper
  • Fashionable Absol
  • Fashionable Croagunk
  • Frillish - Female
  • Frillish - Male
  • Furfrou
  • Mareanie

You’ll also be able to fight the following costume Pokémon in raids throughout Fashion Week:

Meanwhile, any 5km egg collected during this Pokémon Go event will hatch one of the following Pokémon:

  • Summer Flair Pichu
  • Fashionable Wooper
  • Fashionable Smoochum
  • Fashionable Shinx
  • Gothita

It’s also important to note that Gothita hatched via these 5km eggs have a higher chance of being shiny than those found in the wild.

You can also enter any Gothita or Mareanies you may have in PokéStop Showcases during Fashion Week.

There will be a pay-to-play timed research quest available throughout Fashion Week in the in-game shop too. This quest costs $2, or the equivalent in your local currency, and must be completed before it expires or else you’ll have wasted some money. If you do decide to purchase this quest, you’ll be able to earn two Premium Battle Passes and encounters with costume Pokémon.

Finally, Fashion Week of course means new avatar items for sale within the in-game shop. This year sees the addition of clothes inspired by Gothitelle and Runiclus. A number of items in the avatar shop will be on sale during Fashion Week, so, if you’re after some new threads, make sure you check it out.
