Building a Better World Through Games

In January 2018, we began hosting monthly Pokémon GO Community Days enabling Trainers around the world to come together wherever they live and play together. We’ve seen great success from this series of events and are excited to see so much enthusiasm from millions of Trainers worldwide. We have been equally excited learning about what Trainers have done with Pokémon GO Community Day to give back to their own communities.

Each month we’ve seen Trainers come together to not only play the game but also to give back to their community. In April, Trainers across Argentina organized donation drives in 14 different cities across the country, each focused on the needs of local communities including non-perishable food, clothing, pet food, and cleaning supplies.

In aggregate, 948 Trainers who ran the events across Argentina collected 1,700 kilograms of donations for organizations like Suma de Voluntades and Puente Vincular.

We are excited about the upcoming Earth Day events where Pokémon GO players will come together to clean up beaches, waterways, and parks around the world while unlocking great in-game benefits for Trainers around the world. We can’t wait to see what inspiring acts our Trainers undertake next!
