Pokémon GO

On Saturday, the first real-life event for Pokémon GO took place in Chicago: the Pokémon GO Fest. Unfortunately for Niantic, saying that it was a fiasco would be putting it mildly. In order to apologise for the poor experience (people did have to pay to attend, after all), Niantic took the following steps:

  • All registered attendees will soon receive an email with instructions on how to receive a full refund for the cost of their ticket. These instructions will be sent to the email addresses associated with your Pokémon GO account.
  • All registered attendees will receive $100 in PokéCoins in their Pokémon GO account.
  • All registered attendees will have the Legendary Pokémon, Lugia, added to their account.

For those who did not attend the Pokémon GO Fest, the various bonus that were to be unlocked were still unlocked anyway:

  • Double Stardust
  • Double Candy
  • Double XP
  • Increased Pokémon encounters
  • Reduced hatching distance
  • Reduced buddy distance

Those bonuses were supposed to last until Monday, but they’ve been extended to July 28th (1AM BST / 2AM CEST / 9AM JST) / July 7th (5PM PST / 8PM EST).

Lugia can also be found in special Raid Battles, along with Articuno (since officially, Team Mystic caught the most Pokémon during the challenge windows). Zapdos and Moltres are coming soon, too.
