Niantic has announced a brand new Pokemon GO event that will allow users to come across grass-type Pokemon more often in the wild.
This Weekend is Your Perfect Chance to Catch a Grass-Type Pokemon - Hurry Up
If you are still hooked to Pokemon GO even after the initial hype dying down, then you'll be pleased to learn that Niantic has announced a brand new event for the game. Starting today, and ending on May 8, players will be able to come across and catch grass-type Pokemon on a much more regular basis.
Professor Willow's research into Pokémon habitats around the world has uncovered some interesting findings. His initial reports indicate that we’ll see an influx of Grass-type Pokémon sometime this weekend. These Pokémon will appear in the wild more frequently starting the afternoon of May 5, but only for a short period of time. We anticipate that Pokémon will return to their normal habitats on May 8, 2017 PDT.
Help us contribute to Professor Willow’s ongoing research by catching as many Grass-type Pokémon as possible this weekend. While you’re out with friends and family, don’t forget to document your findings using the Pokémon GO AR camera and share your screenshots on social media using #PokemonGO.
This is great news for those who live right next to the seashore and are somewhat tired of catching a Magikarp rather than any sort of grass-type Pokemon at all. So, if you wanted to break the trend, then it's highly advised that you pick up your smartphone or tablet right now, go out in the wild, and catch some Pokemon.
The Pokemon GO game is absolutely free to download and play. But there are in-app purchases thrown into the mix if players want to boost their gameplay. Just tap on the links below and kick off the download immediately.
Despite daily active users seeing a downward trend, Niantic is not stepping down when it comes to appeasing users. Since the past few weeks, there have been a number of events to lure players back into the game. While the move might not be doing wonders, but it is great to see that the game is not left to dry out completely.
Good job, Niantic.
