Niantic has announced that Pokémon GO version 0.75.0 for Android and 1.45.0 for iOS is now available to download. In addition, they also announced an Equinox Event where players can earn double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs.

Image

Celebrate the Equinox!

Trainers, With cool autumn nights quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and sunny spring days arriving in the Southern Hemisphere, we thought it would be the perfect time to celebrate the coming equinox with an in-game event. New seasons mean new adventures!

From 1:00 P.M. PDT on September 22 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on October 2, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to earn double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs as you walk around your neighborhood discovering new sights. While you’re out exploring, be sure to visit your local PokéStops and Gyms to collect special 2 km Eggs that have the opportunity to hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more. You’ll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker!

Registering a new Pokémon to your Pokédex during this limited-time celebration will earn you triple the normal XP. So that makes this a very good time to battle against the Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region. Don’t forget that Raikou, Entei, or Suicune will each travel to a new part of the world on September 30, so make sure to battle the Legendary Pokémon currently in your area while you can!

Pikachu Dons a Classic Chapeau

The official Pokémon website has revealed the code to get one of six exclusive Pikachu. The code is: PIKACHU20 but it can only be used once.

Pikachu Dons a Classic Chapeau

This exclusive Pokémon distribution grants Trainers a Pikachu wearing Ash’s original hat.

With the 20th Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, making a limited theatrical run, we're celebrating by giving Trainers the opportunity to receive one of six exclusive Pikachu into their copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. These Pikachu are unique as they are wearing one of Ash's hats—each one reflecting the hat Ash wore in the various regions that the famous duo has explored in the twenty years of Pokémon TV and movies.

The first of these Pikachu is wearing a hat in the style of Ash's first adventures in the Kanto and Johto regions. Ash's simple and iconic original hat is instantly recognizable by Pokémon fans, and looks perfect on Pikachu, too. Enter your code by September 25, 2017, to get a Pikachu wearing this hat.

In addition to wearing Ash's original hat, this Pikachu is equipped with a set of moves inspired by the attacks it would frequently use in the Kanto and Johto regions. This Pikachu also, amusingly, comes inside a Poké Ball, a nod to the one that the Pokémon constantly refuses to travel within in the animated adventures.

PLEASE NOTE: Although there are six different behatted Pikachu to choose from, you will only be able to get one of them via this special code. The Pikachu you get will vary depending on when you enter this code. To receive Pikachu wearing Ash's original hat from the Kanto and Johto regions, you must enter the code between 0:00 UTC on September 19 and 23:59 UTC on September 25, 2017.

To get original hat Pikachu via a special code:
  • Open your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game.
  • Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  • Select Receive Gift.
  • Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, then Yes again to connect to the internet.
  • Enter the code PIKACHU20.
  • Watch as you receive your Pokémon.
  • Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to receive your Pokémon.
  • Be sure to save your game.

Pikachu Details:

Level: 1
Nature: Hardy
Gender: Male
Ability: Static
Moves: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Thunder, Agility

Standing with the Global Goals - Global Goals shirt in Pokémon GO

To help promote the Global Goals initiative, Niantic has announced that a Global Goals shirt will be available for all player's avatars to wear in Pokémon GO.

Image

Standing with the Global Goals

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which set out to end extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. Earlier this year, we announced a set of Pokémon GO game locations in collaboration with Global Goals during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Each of these 17 PokéStops represented the individual Global Goals, shedding light on the causes that they stand for and on our mission to foster discovery around the world.

Soon, we’ll be adding an all-new avatar item to your wardrobe–the Global Goals shirt. This free shirt gives you and the millions of Trainers around the world the opportunity to stand with us as we look to show our support for initiatives that make the world a better place like the Global Goals.

We hope everyone will join us in having their avatar wear the Global Goals shirt proudly to show their support and spread awareness for these critically important Goals.
