Happy 7th anniversary to Pokémon GO!

Happy 7th anniversary to Pokémon GO!


No matter when you started your Pokémon GO journey, we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate our seventh anniversary with you!

We’ve been overjoyed seeing Trainers from across the world and all walks of life come together with their passion for exploring, catching, battling, making new friends, and learning more about Pokémon over the last seven years.

We’ve also continued to grow Pokémon GO with features, events, new ways to discover Pokémon, and more! Here are a few of our favorites from this past year.

Team GO Rocket’s latest scheme: Shadow Raids

Glittering Gimmighoul Coins

Powerful Primal Reversion

Pokémon Sizes, from XXS to XXL

Regional Scatterbug and Vivillon patterns from Postcards

Otherworldly Ultra Beast raids

Daily adventures with Daily Adventure Incense

We hope you’ll keep taking us along for the ride, wherever your future journeys take you.

We’re also excited to share this year’s anniversary art! This piece is drawn by Yusuke Kozaki (@kymg on Twitter), our character designer for Pokémon GO.
