Niantic is still cracking away at its AR-hit game Pokémon GO with a new series of events called Community Day. These events will be scheduled once a month around the world and aim to bring Trainers, or Pokémon GO players, together with special perks.
Here is a message from Niantic about what trainers can expect:
“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.”
They go on to say…
“Mark your calendars, Trainers. The first Pokémon GO Community Day will take place on January 20, 2018, and it features Pikachu! Explore your local parks with family and friends to catch Pikachu that know the exclusive event move Surf. While you’re out exploring your local parks and making new friends, you’ll also earn double XP during event hours.”
We’ve had a lot of fun with gamers here in Downtown Nashua, and will encourage folks to get out and play as things develop with Community Day events over the course of the year! For past events, we have set up battery packs and seating at central spots for gamers, and though we won’t be doing this during the cooler months of the year, stay tuned as things warm up this spring!
There is no central location for January’s event, but we hope to see you out and about catching some of the new generation three Pokemon, enjoying the perks of the day, and having lots of fun!
