Pokemon GO celebrates its first anniversary, details Solstice in-game event, future plans

Pokemon Go logoNiantic has just revealed new information about what's coming for Pokemon GO in the next couple of weeks. Before going into details, it's worth mentioning the game celebrates two milestones: 750 million global downloads and one year since Pokemon GO was released in the App Store.

As such, the developers have decided to host the Solstice Event starting June 13. During this event, players will meet Fire-type and Ice-type Pokemon at a higher frequency. Moreover, big XP bonuses will be offered for throwing Poke Balls accurately, while Lucky Eggs will be massively discounted in the in-game shop.

Niantic also confirmed that an update would hit Pokemon GO on all platforms soon after the in-game event ends, which focuses on collaborative group gameplay features that add new ways to spend quality times playing Pokemon GO.

Before these new updates make it to the game, the developers announced Gyms would be temporarily disabled for a short period of time.

Last but not least, the folks over at Niantic confirmed the first ever real-world Pokemon GO event would take place in downtown Chicago, Illinois, at the Grant Park on July 22. Tickets for the Pokemon GO Fest Chicago will be available for purchase on Monday 19.
