In the second Pokemon GO post of the day, it's the game's one-year anniversary - can you believe it?
Having launched last July, the popular AR game took the world by storm and has been received overwhelmingly. It's not only provided a ton of fun for players, but has also encouraged people to exercise, birthed new friendships, and created an incredible community of players. According to the latest blog post, players have collected over 125 billion Pokemon, and there's no sign of stopping yet.
Where Raid Battles kicked off a couple of weeks ago, the celebration continues with a very special Pikachu rocking a very familiar hat. That's right, Pikachus discovered in the wild will be wearing Ash's original hat (ugh, my feelings). This'll run from July 6th to July 24th.
You'll also be able to grab limited-time Anniversary Boxes at a discount from the in-game shop. These are stuffed with Incubators, Ultra Balls, Max Revives, and Raid Passes.
Of course, Niantic still has some more stuff planned for us, but you'll have to watch this space.
