Coming 2020: GO Battle League

Trainers, Battling has been a core part of the Pokémon universe since the very beginning. We’re excited to announce the development of a feature that will build upon Trainer Battles, the current form of player vs. player battling that exists within Pokémon GO. This feature will be called GO Battle League.

Like many Pokémon GO features, GO Battle League will encourage players to get out and explore the world with Pokémon. Trainers will be able to walk in order to earn entry into the GO Battle League, then battle opponents from around the globe through an online matching system and rise in the ranks of the league. We hope this feature will make the Pokémon GO battling experience more competitive and accessible to more Trainers.

GO Battle League is slated for release in early 2020. We’ll be sharing more details in a special Dev Insights video soon. Stay tuned, Trainers!

Niantic have announced the details for the 22nd Pokémon GO Community Day which takes place on November 16th, 2019 at 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM EST. The featured Pokémon for this day is Chimchar. Chimchar will appear in the wild more frequently for three hours that day. The 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance and 3-hour Lures bonuses will also be available that day.

Pokémon GO’s November Community Day Features Chimchar and a Special Move

This month’s Pokémon GO Community Day event features Chimchar, and you can get an Infernape that knows a special move.

The Fire-type Chimchar is the hot Pokémon for November's Pokémon GO Community Day, and you'll definitely want to catch as many of this Pokémon as you can during the event. This month's Community Day event will happen on Saturday, November 16, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time.

Chimchar will appear much more frequently in the wild during this time, and if you're lucky, you might even find a Shiny Chimchar! If you evolve Monferno (the Evolution of Chimchar) into Infernape during the event or up to two hours afterward, the Infernape will know a move it can't normally learn. Also during this time, Lure Modules will last for three hours and Eggs will hatch in one quarter of their usual distance.

Check back soon to find out the name of the special move, and have fun on Chimchar Community Day, Trainers!

An exciting Safari Zone New Taipei City finishes up!

Hi Trainers! The Pokémon GO Safari Zone event in New Taipei City, was a great success! Thank you to the Trainers who visited New Taipei Metropolitan Park and numerous exciting local attractions throughout the four-day event.

Over 327,000 Trainers from all over the world joined us at New Taipei City, walking 4.5 million km and catching a total of 50 million Pokémon. Perhaps attracted by the greenery and waterways at the New Taipei Metropolitan Park, many Water-, Grass-, and Bug-type Pokémon such as Oddish, Heracross, Marill appeared. In addition to catching these Pokémon, attendees also enjoyed a wide range of Taiwanese food from over 200 stalls at the Food & Beverage area, Pokémon dance show and even fun photo opportunities.

Image Image

Going beyond the park, some Pokémon such as Oddish appeared around local attractions such as historical old streets and scenic mountain areas in New Taipei City. Reports show that Trainers even caught Shiny Oddish while touring around the city!

Stay tuned for more information about upcoming events—and until then, let’s GO!
