    • This attack is available for Samurott to learn even after the event has concluded.

    • This Special Research includes a Rainy Lure Module as one of its rewards.

Night Theme

Last week, Pokémon GO shared the lyrical version of the Night Theme. The original song was created by Junichi Masuda, the same person responsible for many Pokémon video game songs. The lyrical version, meanwhile, was produced by Ed Goldfarb, who also composed some of the music featured in the anime series. The vocals were done by Haven Paschall and Ben Dixon.

You can listen to the lyrical version below:

If you’re interested to sing along, the lyrics are:

We can share the beauty of the world tonight
Stars up in the sky will light the way
Every place we wander
Wonders will amaze us
See the mountains shimmer in the moonlit sky
Maybe they will show us where to GO
Rhythms of the ocean waves tell me my dream is real
You and I tonight will see our worlds align
The stars alight and with their light to guide me I know I will find you
So we can GO and make a brighter world
We can GO and make a brighter world

The lyrical version will be in the game until September 1. Enjoy it while it’s there.

Pokémon GO is available on iOS and Android.
