Niantic and Pokemon Go are planning to host new events in the following months, to be more precise there are nine events coming in May, June and July. Some of them are only for the US, some are only for Europe and some are worldwide.
When I say following months, I mean – May (19-31), June and July.
First thing first, let’s start with May. We are looking forward to four new events until the end of this month.
1. Community Day event featuring Charmander on May 19 – worldwide – FINISHED;
“Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way!
Note: Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokémon during Community Day hours.”
2. Marina del Rey Art Walk on May 19 – only for the US – FINISHED;
