Since the Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago, Yokohama Pikachu Outbreak event in Japan, and the release of Legendary Pokemon, the game has been going upwards, making the things more interesting for its players. For the first time since the launch back in 2016, the players have a chance to battle and catch Legendary Pokemon as Lugia, Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, the Legendary Beasts and now Mewtwo, the most powerful Pokemon.

But, that’s not all, Niantic and Pokemon Go are planning to host other events in the US and Europe the following months.

The first event on the list was Akron – New Roo Weekend. This event is now finished and it took place in Akron, Ohio where the players had a chance to see an increased number of PokeStops and participate in Pokemon Go Scavenger Hunt. Pokemon Go Akron – New Roo Weekend started on August 26 and ended the next day on August 27.

The second upcoming event is Pokemon Go Safari Zone at Unibail – Rodamco. This event is happening only in Europe, to be more precise in the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. The Trainers can enjoy catching a variety of new Pokemon at Unibail-Rodamco’s shopping centers starting on September 16.

The next day on September 17, Pokemon Go and Niantic are hosting an event in Viva Calle San Jose US. This is a free event, and there is no starting or ending point. Also, the point of this event is to walk, skate, bike and play in San Jose, so no, it’s not a race and if you don’t own a bike you can just simply walk and enjoy Japantown, Roosevelt Park, Mexican Heritage Plaza, Alum Rock Village and Lake Cunningham Park. Rare and hard to find Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Chikorita, Totodile, Cyndaquil, Larvitar and Lapras will be with increased spawn rate. Also, new Pokestops and Gyms will be added.
