Community Ambassador Program and The Silph Road Transition

Community Ambassador Program and The Silph Road Transition


For the past year we’ve had the pleasure of partnering with the Silph Road on the Community Ambassador Program. It’s been great working with the team on this project, and it has also been incredible watching the passionate contributors at the Silph Road grow a truly amazing community hub. While we’re sad to see the Silph Road closing its doors, we want to thank them for all they’ve done for the Pokémon GO community in the last six years.

The Community Ambassador Program will continue to move forward into its next iteration. While we are closing applications for the month of May during the transition, community leaders will have expanded opportunities to apply to be a Community Ambassador outside of the Silph Road. Soon, Trainers from across the globe will be able to apply to this revamped program via Campfire, providing opportunities to share and grow their community and receive rewards for gathering in-person to play. We’ll continue to add more opportunities into the program, such as providing unique access and rewards for Community Ambassadors and their fellow Trainers. You’ll still be able to use the Pokémon GO map to share where you can find your local community and play together during special events.

Stay tuned for more updates as we get ready for the future of the Community Ambassador Program, and thank you again to the team at the Silph Road for their energy, passion, and dedication.
