Niantic is preparing to offer big shows. Starting on June 13, 2017, Pokémon GO’s one-year anniversary and 750 million global downloads will be celebrated during the next few months by real-world and in-game events. The Solstice Event will feature Fire-type and Ice-type Pokémon. Huge XP bonuses for throwing Poké Balls accurately will be accorded.
Pokémon GO itself will be upgraded with new group gameplay features allowing to play in some new ways. Gyms will be temporarily disabled. Pokémon GO Fest Chicago, as a event in the real world, will be organized at Grant Park n downtown Chicago on July, 22. Pokémon GO celebrations will be also hosted across the Europe from June through September in partnership with Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers. “Pikachu Outbreak”will be a Pokémon event in Yokohama, Japan, in August. Trainers will have the chance to meet fellow players and engage in a variety of “exciting activities." The latest news and updates will be available periodically on the social media Pokémon GO’s channels.
Fans are excited and they expect a big change in the game. Many of them from around the world are planning to do a flight to Chicago to be in the heart of events. They want to meet Legendary, as Niantic suggested they will appear just like this, in major locations around the world that people have to travel to. Certainly, at this time, only the Pokémon GO’s team know all details and what will happen for real.
