Pokemon Go Anniversary Event Begins Today

E3’s Nintendo press conference in Los Angeles may be the center of action for many Pokemon fans today, but Pokemon Go players across the globe have reason to get excited wherever they are. Today kicks off the first in-game event of the summer.

The Solstice Event starts today at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, and there are tons of bonuses to playing over the next week. Up until June 20, there will be increased encounter rates for some favorite Fire-type and Ice-type Pokemon and their evolutions, including:

  • Charmander
  • Cyndaquil
  • Houndour
  • Swinub
  • Sneasel

You’ll also get increased XP for in-game actions like Curveballs, Nice Throws, Great Throws, Excellent Throws, and more. Of course, Lucky Eggs will be half-off in the in-game shop, meaning you can really clean up on XP over the next week.

The Solstice Event is just one of the ways the game is celebrating its one-year anniversary. On July 22, the game’s first ever official real-world event will take place in Chicago’s Grant Park. Pokemon Go Fest will bring players together to take part in “a variety of exciting activities.” Tickets go on sale here on June 19 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
