Niantic has announced the 6th anniversary event details which will take place from Wednesday, July 6th, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, July 12th, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

Celebrate six years of Pokémon GO during the Anniversary Event and Battle Weekend!

It’s time to celebrate Pokémon GO and party like it’s 2016! To help kick this anniversary into high gear, we’re having a sensational six-themed celebration—including a special emphasis on Charizard, which is #006 in the Pokedéx. With event-themed Field Research and a Battle Weekend taking place, there’ll be plenty of fun for Trainers everywhere to enjoy!

What’s more, our intel suggests there may be components to this event that will only be revealed after certain Ultra Unlock conditions are met. Could Pokémon GO Fest: Berlin have something to do with this?
