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.

Here’s some additional information:

Niantic has detailed the next Pokemon GO Community Day, which will feature Tepig. The event will be held worldwide on July 3.

New features are in the pipeline for Pokemon GO, Niantic has announced.

First up is the addition of a real-time sky mechanic that mimics a player’s sky light based on their geographical location. Also planned are additional Pokedex classifications that will help players keep track of different Pokémon variants and attributes.

Niantic says that some players will be able to test these features soon. They’ll be available to all later this summer.
