Pokémon Go Gets Thanksgiving Bonuses

Pokémon Go Gets Thanksgiving Bonuses

Pokémon Go – the augmented reality monster catching game – is hosting a Thanksgiving-themed event to thank the fans that supported it. Even if you don’t celebrate the American holiday, everyone should get access to the bonuses detailed.

“We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey,” reads developer Niantic’s blog. “So we would like to say thank you - and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.”

The event is starting November 23 1PM NZT, until November 30 1PM NZT. During that window, you’ll get double XP and double the stardust you normally would. Those appear to be the only additions. We'll update this story if we hear otherwise.

Are you still playing Pokémon Go? Or are you waiting for Gen 2 monsters to become available? Let us know in the comments below!
