Niantic have announced a special event for the upcoming World Tourism Day Event for Pokemon Go which will bring various bonuses for trainers to enjoy.

The event will begin on September 26, 1pm PDT (4pm EDT and 9pm BST) and finish on October 1, 1pm PDT (4pm EDT and 9pm BST). However, while some of the bonuses will only last for this five day period, other will continue going forward.

The list of new features that appear to be ongoing from the beginning of the event are as follows:

  • New shirt! Check out a new United Nations World Tourism Organization T-shirt, available in the Style Shop!
  • Region-limited Pokémon available in Eggs! The following Pokémon will be available in 5 km Eggs in their respective real-world regions: Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Tauros, Heracross, Corsola, Volbeat, Illumise, Torkoal, Zangoose, Seviper, Lunatone, Solrock, Tropius, Relicanth, Pachirisu, Mime Jr., Chatot, Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, Heatmor, and Durant.
  • Shiny Pokémon rivals spotted! If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Zangoose or a Shiny Seviper in the wild in their respective real-world regions!
  • Mime Jr., the Mime Pokémon, will be making its debut in Pokémon GO! It will be available in 5 km Eggs in Europe. If you’re lucky, you might hatch a Shiny Mime Jr.!

To clarify the post indicates that the regional-exclusive Pokemon won’t be available for all trainers but locked to their respective regions. For example, Kangaskhan will remain only available in the Australia region.

Other bonuses will be limited for the duration of the event, though, and these include:

  • Decreased Stardust costs for trading! Trading Pokémon will cost 1/4 less Stardust.
  • Spin PokéStops for extra XP! Earn 2× XP when you spin the Photo Discs of PokéStops you haven’t visited before.
  • Specially themed Field Research tasks will be available for a limited time during this event.

Thanks to Chrales, sharer of the Pokemon Go code, we know these field research tasks will be:

  • Make a new friend
  • Send [x] Gifts to friends
  • Trade Pokemon caught [x] km apart

These, along with the event itself, were revealed back on September 2. The possibility of trade evolutions were also shared.

With a relatively short event, maybe Niantic have something else up their sleeve to kick off the winter months in Pokemon Go.

Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.

That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!

Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.

While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.

Snivy

So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.

Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.

Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
