In 2016 the internet was filled with quirky news about Pokémon Go. That a Koffing had appeared in a controversial place, that someone had stumbled while trying to capture a creature, that a person had fallen off a cliff for not taking their eyes off their mobile screen... seven years afterward, those kinds of news have disappeared. Still, the game is more present than ever. The Pokémon Company and Niantic have shared a series of curious facts to celebrate their anniversary.
7 years in a game like Pokémon Go goes a long way. The title has received multiple new features and has been constantly renewed. In all this time, players have fought thousands and thousands of battles and raids, hunted millions of Pokémon, and traded more creatures than anyone could imagine.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, the 7th birthday party will allow you to enjoy different bonuses that will change throughout the event, shiny Gimminghoul coins and other Pokémon, as well as the return of the the Masterwork Research story, All-in-One #151 (which will net you a chance to get Mew). The official website provides all the details about it.
Pokémon GO is a free-to-play title available on iOS and Android devices. Niantic’s augmented reality game has been a success from the beginning and continues to have a bright future, despite the problems raised by the recent price increase of the Remote Raid Passes.
