POKEMON GO ONE YEAR LATER

So last year the biggest craze came out, Pokmon Go, the augmented reality game which bought Pokemon into the real world, and now it is a year old. I occasionally play the game, I started playing with generation 2, the events, and the gym rework, and today marks the one year anniversary of Pokemon Go. It was interesting seeing this game take off, and for the most part, it didn't die, but in proportion to its initial player base, you could say the game 'died'. As when the game launched there were around 650 million players, now there are around 65 million people a month that play. Which isn't bad, but compared to the 650, it is a large drop.

But a mobile game lasting a year and still maintaining a relatively large player base is quite big, so Pokemon Go has the special stuff for the one year anniversary. So they are saying that the one year anniversary started off with the gym rework update which was huge, and from today until the 24th of July there will be a special edition Pikachu which is wearing Ash Ketchum's classic hat (Pichu and Raichu also come with the hat).

But it doesn't stop there, there will, of course, be Pokemon Go fest in Chicago on the 22nd of July where I am calling it, legendaries will drop, whether that be Gen 1 and Gen 2, I don't know. Sadly I will not make it to GoFest, but if you can make it, good for you.The players not attending, well Niantic said that there will be in game challenges for us to complete. Other than GoFest there are other events happening around the world, such as Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama, Japan, that's in August. In Europe, there will be events happening all over so the next few months will be lit.

So by the end of the month, we could have Legendary Pokemon in the game, as well as possible shinies, which I have not caught any. But I personally thought that gen 1 shinies would drop today, but I was wrong. I am currently standing at 175 Pokemon in the pokedéx, comment below your favorite experiences from Pokemon Go over this past year. As always thanks for reading, take care.
