Pokémon GO Day!

So the Hobbits and I went on a Pokémon hunt let we do every weekend. Or opportunity to do so 😊. We walked all over town and beyond what we normally do. I was rather surprised, negate it was the kids ideas to keep going. Hit like 5 different raids, hatched like 9 eggs, kids leveled up a couple of times. I’m still working my way to level 36…… Yeah, if you play the game, you know it’s a grind.

Plus there was a car show downtown with the farmer’s market. Plus great music and food.

Not a bad day and we all had fun.

Introducing Pokémon GO Community Day!

So earlier this week, some interesting Pokémon GO come out about Community Day. It seems it’s a once month event that will take place at random parks or places within your area. With extra XP, rare Pokémon, temporary battles, etc. Here is the main statement from The Pokémon GO team. 

What is Pokémon GO Community Day? 

Pokémon GO Community Day is an opportunity for Trainers around the world to meet up at their local parks to make new friends and experience what it means to be a part of this special community.
Once a month, we’ll host a Pokémon GO Community Day event starring a special Pokémon, which will appear frequently around the world for just a few hours. When caught during the event, this special Pokémon will know an exclusive move. Other bonuses will be in effect during the event, such as increased XP or Stardust, and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.
We’re constantly blown away by the passion of Pokémon GO players around the world, and we hope that each Pokémon GO Community Day will help add to the excitement of local events and meetups. Remember always to be alert and stay safe while playing and to be respectful of public spaces when exploring your community. Stay tuned to our social media channels and check out the Pokémon GO Community Day event page each month to learn about that month’s featured Pokémon, special bonuses, and event times.

Mark your calendars, Trainers. The first Pokémon GO Community Day will take place on January 20, 2018, and it features Pikachu!

A Celebration to Say Thank You

Trainers,

It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you – and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.
So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.
