Pokemon GO: Events All Over The World - The Right Anniversary Event
So far, Pokemon GO players were not quite as enthusiastic about the anniversary event. In addition to a special gift box and a Pikachu with Ash hat, Niantic did not deliver much. Now, however, the developers have kicked off the event with the "events around the world" event, and the fans are likely to be mild again. Players in Europe can look forward to Safari Zone events.
For the anniversary of Pokemon GO fans had hoped for something more than a gift box and a new Pikachu with an Ash hat. The Shitstorm over it led so far, that even the subreddit of the play had to be switched off. With the action "Events around the world" the developers reported themselves now with new information. Players will receive additional bonuses and in Europe, safari-zone events will be celebrated.
Pokemon GO Fest in Chicago
The Pokemon GO Fest, which was already announced by Niantic on Saturday 22nd July (Grant Park, Chicago, IL), invites players to a very special event. What was previously unknown was what the players were expecting. Participants of the event earn special bonuses for players all over the world with three Challenge Windows during the day. According to the official message, the rewards are linked to the Pokemon types, which catch the players during the event. Trainers can catch, for example, Electric-type Pokemon to reduce the distance associated with Egg hatching, or Grass-type Pokemon to secure a variety of other bonuses.
But also Pokemon trainers outside of Chicago can participate in the successful outcome of the event. "Meanwhile, Trainers outside of Chicago will attempt to catch as many Pokemon as possible during the Challenge Windows to extend the duration of the bonuses unlocked by those attending the event. If Trainers around the world catch enough Pokemon, a mystery challenge will be unveiled in Grant Park that, once completed, will unlock an extra-special bonus across the globe. "
Pokemon GO Safari Zone Events in Europe
In addition to the event in Chicago, Niantic will be releasing further events in Europe between August and September. The special activities take place in shopping centers of Unibail-Rodamco. At these events, trainers have the opportunity to catch Pokemon which can not be found in their region.
