Pokemon Go One Year Anniversary Event Details Revealed

Pokemon Go One Year Anniversary Event Details Revealed

The game is now one year old. The event starts from now until 13th July and includes a new version of Pikachu.

The in-game shop will be selling Anniversary Boxes during that just over two week period. These Pikachu will be taking their hats off after 1 PM PDT on July 24, but if you catch one before that, as it was with the party hat wearing Pikachu, it will keep its famous headgear, and even wear it as Raichu once it evolves. The box contains Max Revives, Incubators, Ultra Balls, and a Raid Pass.

Despite repeated assurances from Niantic that both trading and PvP features will eventually make their way to Pokemon GO, the continued absence of any firm release date has only served to fuel doubt in the minds of players. And just last month, Niantic said it will hold huge, in-person events for the biggest Pokemon Go fans. Pokémon Go will celebrate the occasion with Pikachu, of course.

For now, though, the focus is on the Ash Hat Pikachu and the Anniversary loot.

Pokemon Go is nearing a billion downloads worldwide, so after 12 months, it's still going strong.

"On the weekend of Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 of July, events will be staged across Chester, including activities based at Chester Castle, which will be open to the public for the first time in 20 years".

"Big Heritage will also be working with schools across the Cheshire and Merseyside regions as part of an initiative to encourage young people to explore and learn about their local area by playing Pokemon GO together".
