In honor of Pokémon GO’s one year anniversary, Niantic Inc. and The Pokemon Company International have released a trailer showing major updates to the mobile game. The trailer offers a glimpse into the way that Trainers will work with each other to discover, battle, and catch powerful Legendary Pokémon. Trainers will be able to search for Legendary eggs at Gym locations around their city. Players will be able to team up to battle the Legendary Pokémon and earn a chance to catch it.

The battle for the first Legendary Pokémon will require a lot of teamwork. Pokémon GO Fest Chicago at Grant Park on July 22nd will be where the Legendary Pokemon is to be revealed. While this is happening in Chicago, millions of trainers across the globe can help. Everyone must work together in order to catch Pokemon during the Pokémon GO Fest Challenge Windows to unlock in-game bonuses and for a chance for the Legendary Pokemon to appear at the festival. If trainers at the festival successfully defeat the Legendary Pokémon, it will start appearing in Raid Battles worldwide after the festival is over.

Niantic and The Pokémon Company International announced a variety of in-game and real world activities to bring Trainers together this summer to celebrate the one year anniversary of Pokémon GO. In addition to the Pokémon GO Fest Chicago, Trainers in Europe will also be looking forward to Pokémon GO Safari Zone, which has events hosted across Europe from August to September. This is in partnership with Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers. And for Japan, a unique Pokémon GO experience will also appear at the Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama in August.
