Pokemon GO Travel introduced with Global Catch Challenge

21 November 2017 3

If you thought Niantic did a good job with adding new features to Pokémon Go like the inclusion of Halloween update, you’ll be blown away by what they have just announced. The company has revealed what it has in store for the popular game and it’s something which hasn’t been done before. Pokémon GO Travel is a new video series which will allow fans to have a glimpse of the world through the eyes of a Pokémon Trainer. In order to boost its appeal and rake in more views, it will feature online stars like IHasCupquake, Coisa de Nerd and Rachel Quirico who are sent on a trip to Japan where the game’s first challenge will be hosted.

The Global Catch Challenge is a new feature that has been added to the game and which can be accessed by all players. The challenge has started and will continue until the 26th of this month. The goal is to catch as many Pokémon as you can. Catching Pokémon will result in unlocking three different tiers of rewards. These rewards which the players can unlock have been classified into three different categories:

• Bronze (500 million Pokemon): Double XP, 6-hour lures, more Pokemon appear globally

• Silver (1.5 billion Pokemon): Double XP, 6-hour lures, double stardust, even more Pokemon appear

Gold (3 billion Pokemon): Double XP, 6-hour lures, double stardust, Farfetch’d will be available worldwide for 48 hours, Kangaskhan will be available in East Asia for 48 hours

Players can even share their travel stories on any social media platform by making use of the hashtag #PokemonGOtravel. If you have never tried playing this game, maybe now would be the perfect time to start.
