The usual Pokemon Go fest in Yokamama, Japan was hosted by Niantic this summer, this is the third year this has happened. As per the norm, Niantic held a series of global challenges for players to accomplish during this event.
As a reward for completing these challenges, the studio has decided to make several bonuses available for the mobile title for a week and is also bringing back another Legendary dog for a special Pokemon Go Raid Day this upcoming Saturday on August 17th.
Congrats on unlocking all Blanche’s Global Challenge bonuses, Trainers!
Your hard work also earned you the chance to battle the Legendary Pokémon Suicune in raids on August 17 at 4 p.m. local time. If you’re lucky, you may even encounter a Shiny Suicune! pic.twitter.com/TIHQoUuaGH

The bonuses are as follows from August 13th-20th:
- All Stardust earned from catching and hatching Pokemon is tripled.
- For participating in Raid Battles will earn you 3000 Stardust.
- Any Star Pieces used during this week will last an hour instead of thirty minutes.
Furthermore, Pokemon Go’s next Community day is getting ready for launch for September 15th. The featured Pokemon this time is the Grass-type stater Turtwig! When this event takes place, Turtwig will spawn more than anything else around, and you’ll have your first chance to capture a shiny Turtwig! Along with that, all Stardust earned from catching any Pokemon during this Community day is also tripled.
