Niantic has announced the Pokémon GO Travel and the Global Catch Challenge which aims to get players to catch 3 billion Pokémon in a week from November 20th, 2017 until November 26th, 2017.

Pokémon GO Travel and the Global Catch Challenge

Trainers, Ever since Pokémon GO launched, we've loved hearing stories of Trainers venturing abroad and playing together with new friends from different countries. That's what inspired us to create Pokémon GO Travel, a new video series to see the world through the eyes of a Pokémon Trainer. To kick things off, Pokémon GO Travel is taking a diverse group of Trainers from around the world to Japan to host our first-ever Global Catch Challenge.

Join us as we discover new places, meet new people, and work together in an attempt to catch 3 billion Pokémon in just 7 days. Play along with IHasCupquake, Coisa de Nerd, and Rachel Quirico as they learn more about Japanese culture, inspire the world to play together, and update you on the amazing rewards the community unlocks along the way.

Potential rewards and bonuses include:

Stock up on Poké Balls, Trainers. The Global Catch Challenge starts now and concludes with a special celebration at the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event in Tottori, Japan, on November 26.

We can’t wait to take you along on this amazing adventure and hear what you think about the Pokémon GO Travel tour. We’ll be posting daily updates on Rachel, Tiffany, Gabi, and Leon’s adventures and are curious to see your updates, too! On a trip? Venturing to a new part of town? Share your #PokemonGOtravel story with us this week on your favorite social media channels.

Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Canada have announced Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon Starter Trainer’s Packs which includes the game, 12x Revives and a keychain! They will be sold at select retailers in the United States and Canada. Despite the packaging stating that the keychains are Solgaleo and Lunala respectively, they are technically Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma keychains. Nintendo of America has taken down the posts announcing these packs due to the box art error.

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.

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.
