Additionally, Pokémon Go is offering some special enhancements to celebrate all of the Pokémon caught during the game’s special Challenge Windows. The following enhancements will be activated until July 24th at 5:00 pm PDT:
These enhancements should really help players improve their Pokémon and prepare to battle the legendary Pokémon Lugia and Articuno. So if you’re a Pokémon Go player, get out there and start catching Pokémon!
