Niantic will be hosting various events including the Chicago Pokémon GO Fest to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Pokémon Go. Trainers outside of Chicago may be sad for not being able to join the Pokémon GO Fest next week, but here is a good news, Niantic has prepared a global challenge too and it requires trainers around the world to work together for special rewards.
Here is what Niantic says at their official website:
During the day, there will be three Challenge Windows in which Trainers everywhere will work alongside those in Chicago to unlock global rewards. During the Challenge Windows, Trainers in Grant Park will attempt to unlock perks for Pokémon GO players around the world by catching certain types of Pokémon. Each Pokémon- type will be tied to a different perk, so Trainers at the park will need to carefully choose which Pokémon they catch.
Meanwhile, Trainers outside of Chicago will attempt to catch as many Pokémon 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 Pokémon, a mystery challenge will be unveiled in Grant Park that, once completed, will unlock an extra-special bonus across the globe.
I can’t wait to see how the result turns out! Other than this, there will be plenty of Pokémon GO Safari Zone Events in Europe area during the upcoming August and September. Japan will a Pikachu Outbreak too. You can find more details here, and don’t forget to join in the fun!
