Believe it or not, Pokémon GO is coming up on its 8th anniversary! With such a milestone ahead, it’s not surprising to see Niantic gearing up with some big celebrations. The developer has announced all sorts of fun and exciting things, and it all kicks off June 28th, 2024.

From June 28th to July 3rd, 2024, Pokémon GO’s 8th Anniversary Party will be underway. Here’s some of what you can expect to see in-game.

New costumed Pokémon will appear during this event!

  • Grimer wearing a party hat
  • Muk wearing a party hat

When you use the Mystery Box during this event, you might encounter Shiny Meltan—if you’re lucky! In addition, you’ll be able to open the Mystery Box more frequently.

Event Bonuses

  • Increased chance to become Lucky Friends.
  • Increased chance to get Lucky Pokémon in trades.
  • Friendship levels will increase faster than normal through opening Gifts, trading Pokémon, or battling together in raids, Gyms, or Trainer Battles!
  • Chance of finding 8 or 88 (or maybe more!) Gimmighoul Coins when you spin a PokéStop with a Golden Lure Module.

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the 8th anniversary celebration. You can find a complete breakdown of what’s on the way at the official Pokémon GO blog.
