This is not today’s regularly scheduled upload. I actually have a video that I shot yesterday and edited that I was planning on uploading today, but then Niantic announced what they’re doing for the Pokemon GO! one year anniversary… And I figured I should get this video out before that one because this is sort of time-sensitive. So let me just warn you now that this video is going to be kind of short, it’s going to take place right here at the desk, and I’m sorry if this is underwhelming, if this is not what you’re expecting; Tomorrow’s video will be a little bit more exciting, but I just didn’t have the time and energy to shoot two videos yesterday because I’m leaving for camping in like two hours. So I’m trying to get this up to let you guys know what’s going on. So here we go. Today marks the one-year anniversary of the official launch of Pokemon GO! and to celebrate, Niantic is giving us another Pikachu with a hat so the official announcement starts, “Happy Birthday Pokemon GO! Trainers, it’s hard to believe that Pokemon GO! launched just a year ago, and what an amazing year it’s been. I’m just going to skip all this. We’ve caught a hundred twenty five billion Pokemon combined worldwide. That’s kind of crazy.But the post continues. Just a few weeks ago, the one-year anniversary- Can you guys keep it down? Sorry, it’s just so loud living in downtown. The post continues. Just a few weeks ago, the one-year anniversary Celebration kicked off with a bang. So this event that they announced today is not the only thing they’re doing for the anniversary. The anniversary celebration is everything that’s happening this summer, so there’s a lot more to it. Keep that in mind as I continue to read. Please. You and millions of other trainers went outside to battle in revamped gyms and participate in raid battles with family and friends for the first time, but this was only the beginning of an action-packed couple of months. The celebration continues with a special Pikachu wearing a familiar hat appearing all over the world, from July 6th at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time – that’s two hours from the time this video goes up – to July 24th at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time – one week later. Pikachu – just-that’s-no, that’s not a week. That’s a long as – that’s like, but that’s almost three weeks. That’s almost three weeks, that this Pikachu is going to be hanging out with us. Pikachu discovered in the wild will be wearing Ash’s famous hat – which unfortunately I don’t have – from the Pokemon animated series, so make sure you don’t miss out on your opportunity to catch one. You’ll also be able to stock up for raid battles and events ahead with a special limited time anniversary box which will include incubators, max revives, ultra balls and raid passes at a discount in the in-game shop. So besides the Pikachu with a hat we’re also getting a box – a sale box – in the shop that includes Incubators and Raid Passes and then also Max Revives and Ultra Balls which depending on the price of the box may or may not be worth buying. Raid passes are a very hot commodity right now. Everyone wants them. Incubators have sort of fallen off a little bit. I would say people are far more interested in raids than hatching eggs at the moment. But if the deal is good enough on those, the Max Revives and ultra balls are sort of just a bonus. The post ends with “Stay tuned for even more exciting news over the coming weeks including additional information on Pokemon GO! fest in Chicago this July – that’s July 22nd – events hosted at select Unibail-Rodamco locations this August and September in Europe and PokemonGO events at the Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama, Japan this August. And just a reminder for anyone who’s not going to make it to GO fest in person, Niantic has said that there are going to be in-game events going on during GO fest, so even people who aren’t there at GO fest will be able to participate in whatever they have going on in the game. So even if you’re not going, there will be something special for you to do in the game on that day and probably for a little while – after or before – you know. It’s going to be ok. I know, we’re only getting a pikachu with a hat, but remember everything that’s going on this summer is part of this one year anniversary celebration. So please try not to be too disappointed with this anniversary celebration announcement. There is a lot more to it. We just got a huge content update with gyms and raids GO fest is this month, Pikachu outbreak’s next month. There’s a lot more planned throughout the summer for Pokemon GO! So again, I’m sorry that this is all I have uploaded today. Like I said, I’m heading out of town. I have another video for you tomorrow. Go out, catch some Pikachus with a hat today while it’s still exciting. They’ll be around for almost three weeks, so you’re probably going to get tired of them. But if you’re excited about this and the rest of the Pokemon GO! anniversary celebration use rock smash on that like button and if you hate the news then use body slam on the like button because I’m really not looking forward to reading all the comments from people who are disappointed so positive feedback, please! Thanks for watching, see you guys tomorrow. For a regular – regularly scheduled upload. And then after the weekend, for an exciting, out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere episode.
