Pokemon GO celebrates one year anniversary with special Pikachu, limited time items
Developer Niantic kicked off celebrations of Pokemon GO's one year anniversary a few weeks ago with a series of in-game events that will give players the chance to win limited time items and hunt for special Pokemon.
As some of you might be aware of, Pokemon GO was launched last year in July, and since then, players have caught more than 125 billion Pokemon. Today, the developers announced a special event that will run from July 6 at 1:00 PM PDT to July 24 at 1:00 PM PDT.
During the event, players will be able to catch a special Pikachu wearing Ash's famous hat from the Pokemon animated series. Moreover, Pokemon players can now stock up for Raid Battles and the events that will follow after this one with the special limited-time Anniversary Box.
The new Anniversary Box contains Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls, as well as Raid Passes at a discount in the in-game shop. According to Niantic, more in-game events could be announced in the coming weeks.
Also, Niantic promises to reveal more information for those who plan to attend the Pokemon GO Fest Chicago this July, events hosted at select Unibail-Rodamco locations this August and September in Europe, as well as Pokemon events at the Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama, Japan, this August.
