Niantic Announces Pokémon Go Thanksgiving Event

- in News

Niantic is giving thanks to Pokémon Go players by launching a Pokemon Go Thanksgiving miracle! On the 23rd of November, players will get double XP and double stardust until the 30th.

Here is the official blog post:


It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you – and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.

So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.

The Pokémon GO team

In order to take advantage of this event, you’re going to want to hatch as many eggs as you can, keep up you daily bonus streak, and use a lucky egg whenever you can. Here is Pokémon Go Hub‘s Thanksgiving event guide:

There’s a plethora of options Trainers can do in order to maximize their XP and Stardust gain during this event. Essentially, this event will act as a permanent Lucky Egg buff in regards to XP gain (it stacks with Lucky Egg also) with added Stardust drops.

Players should engage in following actions:

  • Lucky Egg evolution is now 4x efficient (2x Lucky Egg + 2x event bonus)
  • Make sure your daily Pokémon streak is up and running, as it now will reward the following:
    • 1000 XP and 1200 Stardust for First Catch of the Day
    • 4000 XP and 4800 Stardust for 7 day streak
  • Of course, catching Pokémon and Hatching Eggs is a must

Have fun!
