Niantic is celebrating the 6th anniversary of Pokémon GO. They commissioned a new piece of anniversary art drawn by Yusuke Kozaki (@kymg on Twitter).

Happy sixth anniversary, Pokémon GO!

Trainers,
Today marks a very special day—it’s the sixth anniversary of Pokémon GO! What an adventure it’s been!

Whether it encourages you to hike through mountains, discover new landmarks right in your backyard, or catch, trade, and battle Pokémon with friends, Pokémon GO continues to bring Trainers together in new and unexpected ways, all while highlighting the friendship and bonds we can make with each other—and with Pokémon!

Things aren’t going to slow down in our sixth year, either. We’ve got an Anniversary Event right around the corner to mark the occasion, and Pokémon like Charizard and Pikachu are dressed up and ready to celebrate!

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate in-person, look no further than Pokémon GO Fest: Seattle and Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo! Tickets for both events are still available. Stay tuned for more details on the global Finale event that will take place on August 27!

We’re also excited to share a new piece of anniversary art! This year’s anniversary art is drawn by Yusuke Kozaki (@kymg on Twitter), who is also in charge of character design for Pokémon GO.

We can’t wait to see what the sixth year of Pokémon GO has in store for all of us. Let’s GO!

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Ranked Battles July 2022 Season (Season 32)

Take on players from around the world to earn in-game rewards and climb the leaderboards.

The new Ranked Battles season in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield has begun, which means you can move up the global leaderboards and earn helpful in-game rewards by battling players from around the world.

Running until 4:59 p.m. PDT on July 31, 2022, the Ranked Battles July 2022 Season (Season 32) will follow the Series 12 regulations, which means you can battle with two powerful, usually ineligible Legendary Pokémon at your side.

13 new Pokémon Utility Hole Covers, or PokéLids (Pokéfuta ポケふた) were unveiled for Iwate Prefecture. The new manholes depict Isitsubute and other Pokémon and are based on images of various landscapes in Iwate Prefecture, and will be installed throughout the area.

Each PokéLids is an original design and each is unique with the aim of promoting the appeal of Pokémon and each region they are installed in throughout Japan.

The PokéLids that are installed will gradually become PokéStops for the location-based game Pokémon GO for smartphones.
