Niantic have announced the details for the 3rd Pokémon GO Community Day which takes place on March 25th, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM Haiti Daylight Time. The featured Pokémon for this day is Bulbasaur and as a result all Venusaur that have evolved from Ivysaur during the duration of the Community Day will have the move Frenzy Plant, a move that no other Pokémon currently has in the game. The bonus 3× Catch XP and 3-Hour Lures will also be available that day.

Pokémon GO updated to version 0.95.3 for Android and 1.65.3 for iOS

Trainers, Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.95.3 for Android and 1.65.3 for iOS devices. Details from our development team:

Facebook Account Linking and Login Updates Coming to Pokémon GO!

Good news, Trainers! We’ll soon begin rolling out support for account linking with Facebook. Along with a simpler sign-in process, linking Pokémon GO to your Facebook account gives you more options to log in and helps preserve your progress across devices.

With this change, you will also be able to link your Trainer profile to your Facebook and Google accounts, and use any of those credentials to access Pokémon GO. For example, someone who currently logs in with Pokémon Trainer Club could link their Trainer profile to both their Google and Facebook accounts, and then they can use whichever account they prefer going forward. To link your Trainer profile to a Google or Facebook account, access the Settings menu and then select the platform you’d like to link.

Account linking is especially useful for someone who has registered for Pokémon GO using a Google Account that they may not be able to access in the future, such as one associated with a work or university email address. By linking their Facebook account, they can continue to make progress on their Pokédex, and even link a new Google account to their Trainer profile.

Please note: this feature will only be available to Trainers aged 13 and over.

February 27th, 2018 is Pokémon Day for 2018 and a number of festivities and promotions occurred to celebrate the World of Pokémon.



Fan-Focused Introductions, New Snapchat Lenses, and More, Debut for the Annual Celebration of all Things Pokémon on February 27

Pokémon Day, every Trainer’s favourite pop-culture holiday, returns today with a number of exciting new offerings from The Pokémon Company International. To help fans celebrate, Pokémon Trainers can now join Pokémon Day celebrations on social media with all-new Snapchat Lenses featuring the original first partner Pokémon—Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle—while also enjoying new opportunities to watch iconic Pokémon animation, and the chance to catch a special Pikachu in Pokémon GO.

On February 27, 1996, the first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, launched in Japan, kicking off a global phenomenon that would grow to be one of the most popular and influential entertainment brands in the world for more than 20 years. Each year, The Pokémon Company International commemorates this date with new products and promotions that give Pokémon fans around the world new ways to interact with the Pokémon brand.

“Pokémon Day is not only a celebration of the franchise, but also of Pokémon’s incredible fan community,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “This year we’re offering social media activations and more across the brand to help Trainers around the world express their love of all things Pokémon.”

The following are highlights of happenings this Pokémon Day from The Pokémon Company International.

New Snapchat Lenses: Starting today and for a limited time, three new Snapchat Lenses featuring the first partner Pokémon from the Kanto region will start to roll out around the world, beginning with Bulbasaur. Charmander will arrive later, followed by Squirtle.

Animation: Beginning today, the latest animated feature-length Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, will be available on Pokémon TV for the first time. The hit movie will be available to view on the app, available for iOS and Android, and on Pokémon.com for a week.

Pokémon GO: When exploring their world in search of wild Pokémon, Pokémon GO Trainers can keep an eye out for a special Pikachu wearing a festive striped purple hat. For Pokémon Day 2018, this Pikachu will know the move Present and will give players triple the usual Stardust when caught. Trainers can look for Pikachu wearing a party hat through February 28 at 9 p.m. GMT.

Social Media: In addition to the Snapchat festivities, fans are invited to join the conversation online with #PokemonDay. Fans who use this hashtag might have their posts featured on the official Pokémon Day hub at https://www.pokemon.com/uk/pokemon-day/ where more information about the day’s fan-focused festivities can be found.

Pikachu Talk - Have a Chat with Pikachu!


You and Pikachu will have a lot to discuss when you start the Pikachu Talk skill for Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

Haven't you always wondered what it would be like to have a Pokémon friend of your very own? Think of the adventures you would go on, the battles you would face, and the conversations you would have.

Wait…conversations? Yes, indeed! With the Pikachu Talk skill for Amazon Alexa or Google Home devices, you can now experience the joy of chatting with the famous Pokémon. You can talk to Pikachu about anything, and you're sure to hear all sorts of wonderful and charming responses. What good is having a partner if you can't shoot the breeze with them every once in a while?

Ask Pikachu to “use Thunderbolt,” and hear if it's in the mood to use its electrifying move! Say “tell me a funny story,” and Pikachu will spin a yarn as only it can. If it's your special day, just ask Pikachu to sing “Happy Birthday to You.” Even something silly like “say ‘pizza' 10 times” will get Pikachu chatting!

There's plenty more for you and Pikachu to talk about—to get started, say “Open Pikachu Talk!”

A Premium Raid Pass can be obtained by using PokéCoins at the shop in-game.

Kyogre and Groudon Join Rayquaza for a Legendary Week of Raid Battles!

Niantic has announced that from February 23rd, 2018 until March 5th, 2018, players of Pokémon GO will have the chance to catch the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza in Raid Battles.


Kyogre and Groudon Join Rayquaza for a Legendary Week of Raid Battles!

Trainers, Now is the time to test your strength! Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon return to Raid Battles alongside Rayquaza for a limited time. Now is an excellent chance to finally catch all three ancient Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region!

Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza each have their own strengths and weaknesses, so challenging all three will take skill! Power up your strongest Pokémon, grab your friends, and head to nearby Gyms for a chance to battle and catch them from February 23 until March 5.

We’re in for some legendary battles, and the overall result will be exciting! If Rayquaza is defeated more than Kyogre and Groudon combined, Pokémon that typically prefer windy weather (for example, Bagon) are more likely to hatch from Eggs from March 5 to March 16. If not, Pokémon that prefer sunny or rainy weather (like Trapinch or Lotad) are more likely to hatch.

These battles will be tough, so we have new special boxes debuting on February 24, containing Raid Passes to help you prepare. Visit the in-game store to find out more.

Did you know Pokémon is celebrating a ‘legendary’ year in 2018? You can learn about more about these and other Legendary Pokémon at Pokemon.com/Legendary.

Don’t miss this opportunity to add these Legendary Pokémon to your team. Stay safe, and happy exploring!

Honoring Lunar New Year: Chiayi Lantern Festival with Pokémon GO

For thousands of years, the Lantern Festival has symbolized good luck and fortune. See beautiful lights and honor the New Year with Pokémon GO during a special Safari Zone event at the Chiayi Lantern Festival in Taiwan, hosted by the Chiayi County government from February 26 to March 3.

Dratini, Mr. Mime, Growlithe and many other Pokémon will be appearing at the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event among the lanterns during the daytime, starting at 7:00 AM. At 5:00 PM, as the lanterns begin to glow, Trainers will see Chinchou and Lanturn in the wild! There will also be Pokémon to discover around Puzi City and the rest of Chiayi County, so make sure you walk around and enjoy all that Chiayi has to offer. And of course, don’t miss the beauty of the lanterns, which will bring good health, wealth and love in the New Year.

We also want to extend our thoughts and condolences to those affected by the nearby earthquake. We hope those lanterns will bring the people of Taiwan comfort, and we sincerely wish you healing and a strong recovery.

This Pokémon GO Event Is a Howl!

Celebrate the Year of the Dog in Pokémon GO during the Lunar New Year event.


February 16, 2018, marks the start of the Lunar New Year and the beginning of the Year of the Dog. To celebrate this festive occasion, Pokémon GO will be hosting a special Lunar New Year Event from February 15–17 highlighting Pokémon that resemble real-life canines.

During this time, expect to see plenty more Poochyena, Growlithe, Eevee, Snubbull, and Electrike appearing in your area. As an extra bonus, you will receive three times the usual amount of Stardust when you capture them, which will come in handy when you're looking to power up your Pokémon.

Step out and catch as many of these Pokémon as you can during the event—the more you collect, the faster you'll be able to evolve them. It's a good way to add the likes of Mightyena, Arcanine, and Manectric to your team.

And hey, while you're out playing Pokémon GO, you could take your favorite furry friend for a nice walk, too! It's a win-win for everyone involved—human or pooch!
