Pokemon Go fans are getting ready for a brand new Thanksgiving event, which is expected to start soon.
During a recent blog post, Niantic told fans to expect big Pokemon Go news next week.
“Niantic is actively expanding the Pokemon Go development team to build many more amazing updates in 2018,” the post reads. “Stay tuned for news next week about upcoming improvements to certain features.”
It’s thought Niantic will announce details of a Thanksgiving 2017 event, which is likely to run for a week.
Last year’s event started on Wednesday, November 23 and ran until November 30.
Based on those timings, the Pokemon Go Thanksgiving 2017 event could have a Wednesday, November 22 release date.
It’s possible the Thanksgiving event will include double XP and Stardust, and potentially the release of Smeargle, Delibird and Ho-Oh.
Pokemon Go fans have been treated to a special bonus ahead of the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon release date.
With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon coming to 3DS earlier this week, fans can dress their Pokemon Go avatars in new gear inspired by the Alola region.
“We’re excited to announce that new avatar items are now available,” reads a Niantic post.
“To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, you’ll be able to dress your Pokemon Go avatar in brand-new outfits inspired by the tropical Alola region.”
Pokemon Go trainers can access the gear by selecting the player icon in the lower left portion of the screen.
The free outfits can be found in the Style section of the profile.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic has issued a warning to iOS users.
The development team will end support for iOS 8 users from November 20.
“iOS 8 was initially released in 2014. In the time since the release, there have been some major improvements to the iOS operating systems,” a message from Niantic explains.
“By removing support for iOS 8, we are able to streamline our development process and focus resources on supporting newer operating systems and technologies.
“A vast majority of Apple users have migrated to iOS 9 and above. As players migrate from older operating system versions to newer ones, we periodically update our supported device requirements to focus on the devices our player base use.”
