Pokemon Go News & Update: Players Get Yummy Treats, Limited Research Event, & New Shiny Pokemon Feeba
Pokemon Go was launched in 2016. Two years later, this augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic is still popular and the community continues to grow.
Speaking of community, Pokemon Go January 2019 Community Day is set for Saturday, Jan. 12. Expect that you have a chance to capture rare Pokemon and earn tons of bonuses and treats.
Aside from virtual treats, Pokemon Go players are going to enjoy the real sweet treats in reality during Pokémon Go Community Day. A Reddit user aryamao posted some of his/her homemade pokemon sweets that she/he wants to share at Pokemon Go Community. The homemade sweets look like Pokémons. These are not just pretty, but they look delicious as well.
aryamao also bakes other creative geeky dishes including, an Eevee-themed pumpkin pie, along with homemade Bulbasaur and Charmander truffles. The Pokemon Go player also made a geeky sweet concoction that pays tribute to Spider-Man. It seems the Pokemon Go Community Day seems very special to armayao as she/he shows his/her dedication.
