 IPHONE NEWS - UPDATE

Pokémon GO’s upcoming Community Day tries to right the wrongs of the past

If at first you don’t succeed . . .

Product: Pokemon GO | Developer: Niantic | Publisher: The Pokemon Company | Genre: Action
For: iPhone   Also on: Android, iPad
 
Pokemon GO Community Day

The last mass Pokémon GO event, Pokémon GO Fest in Chicago, was an unmitigated disaster, and Niantic is still trying to make it up to fans, this time with a new Community Day, the first of hopefully many monthly public events for Pokémon trainers everywhere (if you're still able to play the game, that is). This month’s Community Day aims to right the wrongs of the past. Rather than hosting the event in one small spot, which is what caused the last Fest to implode, Community Day is an international event.

Players will congregate once a month to hunt down a special, rare Pokémon (that comes with an exclusive move!) that will only appear for the duration of the event. Trainers who log-in during the event will also be treated to experience bonuses or extra Stardust and extended lure times for the three-hour event.

The first Community Day features Surfing Pikachu, a well loved rare Pikachu that first appeared way back in Pokemon Yellow. Pikachu’s surfer cousin handily comes with the powerful Water move, Surf.

The festivities are going down on January 20, with time slots for each region:
  • The Asia-Pacific region: January 20, 2018, from 12:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. JST (GMT +9)
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: January 20, 2018, from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. UTC (GMT +0)
  • The Americas and Greenland: January 20, 2018, from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. PST (GMT -8)
Niantic is still working out the kinks with its community events a year and a half after Pokémon GO’s release, though Community Day seems like it could be a welcome solution. It’s a great way to regularly get fans together and stir up enthusiasm for the game, which still has millions of players, amazingly enough.

What say you? Will we be seeing you out there on January 20?
