September is fast approaching, and Niantic has now given a heads up about the next Community Day. Oshawott will be featured in the mobile game next month, it’s been announced. The event will take place on September 19.

Below is some additional information:

Recently, Niantic issued a change in Pokemon GO reducing the radius that players could interact with Pokestops and POI. This was something that was implemented due to COVID-19 safety concerns and is now being rolled back as many people are able to re-enter public spaces. 

However, the Pokemon GO community felt that having a larger Pokestop/POI interaction radius greatly benefitted the game (not only in the gameplay, but also for safety/accessibility reasons) and pushed back against its removal with an open letter to Niantic. This letter talked about what the extended Pokestop radius meant to the community and how it improved many players’ experiences.

Niantic has announced that new creatures from Pokemon Sword/Shield will soon be added to Pokemon GO. Zacian and Zamazenta will be appearing in their Hero of Many Battles forms, and we’ll also be seeing Skwovet, Greedent, Wooloo, Dubwool, and Falinks. Players may also encounter a Shiny Galarian Meowth, a Shiny Galarian Farfetch’d, a Shiny Galarian Weezing, or a Shiny Galarian Stunfisk if they’re lucky enough.

August is almost here, and that means there’ll be plenty of new activities to find in Pokemon GO. Niantic is planning another Community Day, Ultra Unlocks, GO Battle Night, and more.

July is just around the corner, and Pokemon GO has some new events in store for the month. Between the game’s anniversary celebration and Pokemon GO Fest (plus much more), there’s a lot to look forward to in the weeks to come.

Players can expect the following:

When the coronavirus pandemic exploded last year, Niantic implemented a number of changes in Pokemon GO given how many people were quarantining. The goal was to let players experience the mobile title more easily while staying at home. Now, however, Niantic is looking to implement a few changes.

Pokemon GO will be adding new exploration bonuses that make it more rewarding to play outside “over the next several months”, removing/changing some bonuses introduced last year, and keeping a few ones. Testing will take place in the US and New Zealand starting at the end of July before rolling out to other regions.
