Pokémon GO celebrates seven stellar years, and it’s time to celebrate!

Pokémon Go turns 7 this month, and Niantic is celebrating with an event that will focus on several fan-favorite Pokémon, including all of the starter Pokémon currently available in the game. Players will also have the opportunity to get a guaranteed Shiny Mew by accepting the challenge of some new Master Investigations.

For those who have participated in previous anniversary events, the Pokémon Go 7th Anniversary Party will feature similar content, but will also include new faces. From July 6-12, players will see a slew of starter Pokémon, the three Legendary Birds of Kanto, and have a chance to earn Mega Energy for six Starters that can access Mega Evolution.

The main attraction for players who are not interested in those encounters is a new Master Research set, All-in-One #151, which will guarantee you the chance to get a shiny Mew.

Mew and you

For $5.00 USD (or the equivalent local currency price), you can claim the master research story “All in One #151”.* Upon purchase, you will have access to a master research story that is designed to be completed over time.

Holders of this ticket will have access to the master research story during the 7th Anniversary Party. To receive the Master Research, you must open Pokémon GO sometime between Thursday, July 6, 2023 at 10:00 am and Wednesday, July 12, 2023 at 8:00 pm (local time). After receiving the master research, you will be able to complete it at your leisure.

Initial Pokémon

Throughout the celebration, players will be able to encounter Starters from Gen I to Gen VII, but with a little twist. As the event lasts seven days, each day will increase the number of encounters with a generation of Starters, starting in Kanto on July 6 and ending in Alola on July 12.

Each day will also have its own special bonus. Here is a complete list of all the bonuses and boosted spawns for each day of the event.

  • July 6 More chances of finding Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Double XP for catching Pokémon
  • July 7 Increased chances of finding Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile. Double Stardust for catching Pokémon
  • July 8 Chances of finding Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip increase. Double candy for catching Pokémon
  • July 9th Chances of finding Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup increased. Egg hatching distance halved when using incubators.
  • July 10th Chances of finding Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott are increased. Friendship level will increase twice as fast.
  • July 11 Chances of finding Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie increase. Double candy transfer
  • July 12 Chances of finding Rowlet, Litten and Popplio are increased. Double XP for evolving Pokémon

No new Pokémon will debut during this celebration, but players will be able to get Wartortle and Blastoise with a Party Hat for the first time. This will tie in with the Classic Community Day: Squirtle, which will also be held on July 9.
