Pokemon Go Anniversary Event, Free Goodies
So, despite several conflicting leaks and rumors, it looks the knowledge bestowed to us by the heavenly dev gods is true. On this special occasion, we are wishing Pokemon Go – a Happy Birthday, to celebrate this, Niantic gave us a bunch of stats and a new cute little Ash’s Pikachu.
The official Blog post from Pokemon live, says that throughout the year trainers around the world have caught 125 Million Pokemon. Unlike last time, there was no data given the amount of distance that these trainers walked collectively. But my bet is that this would have gone up at least two-fold, thanks to the gen-2 release and the new Raids.
This announcement gives us some other thing to be excited about, there is now a special limited-time Anniversary Box, which will include Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls, and Raid Passes at a discount in the in-game shop. Which to be honest, is a great addition just in time for the summer.

You and millions of other Trainers went outside to battle in revamped Gyms and participate in Raid Battles with family and friends for the first time, but this was only the beginning of an action-packed couple of months. The celebration continues with a special Pikachu wearing a familiar hat appearing all over the world.
