POKEMON GO news this week includes another major update release from Niantic, while fans prepare for the end of the mini Moltres event and the start of Zapdos phase.
A big Pokemon update will be followed by the launch of Zapdos
A new Pokemon Go update has been launched by Niantic this week, which is going to prove very popular with European players.
Since the start, certain Pokemon have been made exclusive to certain regions around the world.
And now it appears that Niantic are ready to change things up a little.
Starting today, Niantic are set to allow both Kangaskhans and Unowns to spawn in certain European cities, up until August 21.
“While you’re out looking for these Pokemon, consider stopping by your local Unibail-Rodamco shopping center,” a message from Niantic teases.
“In addition to being a great place to find these Pokémon, we’ve heard that Lure Modules will be activated at many PokéStops found at these locations throughout the weekends of August 12 and August 19.
We’ve heard that as early as this weekend, some Pokemon rarely seen in Europe, including Kangaskhan and Unown, may begin appearing in certain European cities. This unusual occurrence is predicted to last until August 21.”
It appears the new launches are tied to nearly every major capital city in Europe, a list of confirmed locations can be found at the bottom of this article.
Nothing has been confirmed for the United States and this new Pokemon Go Event looks to be a form of compensation for the delayed Safari Zones that were supposed to go live.
While this will make a welcome boost for Pokemon Go players in the 45 locations confirmed, there are also other big event happening in the coming days.
This will also be the last weekend in which Pokemon Go players will be able to go out and catch Moltres.
As confirmed by Niantic, Team Mystic’s Articuno was released on Saturday, July 22 and was removed from the game on Monday, July 31.
