Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced a new double experience event to kick off for the popular mobile game starting November 23.
Mimicking a similar promotion held earlier this month, those that log into Pokemon Go at any time from November 23 to November 30 will enjoy not just double experience rewards for completing in-game actions, but double Stardust too, so you’ve really got no excuse not to jump back in or even make an account – although we imagine there aren’t many people left in the world who haven’t spent at least a few minutes in-game already.
Interest in the augmented reality title may have dropped off considerably in the months since launch, but Niantic appears to be doing its best to keep players engaged, offering small content updates post-launch that introduce new features as well as special events like this one.
In the announcement post on its blog, Niantic thanks fans for ensuring Pokemon Go‘s continued success, further adding that its been “humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey.”
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.
Judging by the most recent update to the game, Niantic appears to have big plans for the title going ahead. Data miners managed to discover various assets for Generation 2 Pokemon, as well as files concerning the elusive Ditto, which is currently unobtainable in-game.
Of course, for Trainers who aren’t particularly interested in mobile gaming, you’re probably aware that a certain Pokemon Sun and Moon are now available on 3DS, both of which are the most pre-ordered games in Nintendo’s history. Hardly surprising: we think they’re the best main entry games to be released in, well, forever.
