2 days ago Niantic announced the Pokemon GO Celebration event on their website and they also announced that Pokemon trainers will be getting double XP and double stardust which is pretty awesome!
Thanksgiving is just hours away and this is Niantic’s way of giving us gifts on Thanksgiving. They posted on their website that they are happy about Pokemon Go’s big success in such a short time and they are very thankful for the community’s support.
And for that reason, they announced “A Celebration to Say Thank You” for Pokemon Go on Thanksgiving.
here is Niantic’s direct message to us
It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise.
We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you – and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.
So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.
The Pokémon GO team ”
