We received an email update today from the Pokemon Go team about an exciting new global event (yes, we still play it).
We’re incredibly excited to announce Pokémon GO Community Day–a monthly worldwide event dedicated to celebrate you, the Trainers in the Pokémon GO community.
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.
So as you can see, this is a new global event that will keep players catching Pokemon and might even entice trainers who have stopped playing, to come back. Here’s the information as it relates to Australia:
So it doesn’t seem like there’s any place you need to congregate at, if you can catch Pokemon then there’s a chance you’ll catch this new Pikachu. Seems like a fun event, Japandaman will be definitely part!
