Pokemon fans have a lot to celebrate this month as the widely popular mobile game, Pokemon Go, turn one this month. To celebrate this occasion, Niantic launched a new event that will allow players to capture a special Pikachu for a limited time.
From now through July 24, players will have the chance to encounter and capture Pikachu wearing Ash’s hat from the Pokemon animated series. In addition, players will have the option to purchase a special Anniversary Box in the game’s store, containing Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls and a Raid Pass. This Anniversary Box will only be available for a limited time.
.Fans of the game have more than in-game content to look forward to. Several more events are scheduled to take place throughout the summer, including a real-world event called Pokemon Go Fest, which takes place in Chicago on July 22. The event has sold out but more are being planned.
Pokemon Go is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The game has been downloaded more than 750 million times, and it has driven more than 500 million visits to sponsored PokeStops, such as Starbucks restaurants and Sprint stores, since its launch.
