Pokemon Go launched four years ago, and since the launch, Niantic has offered several events and made plenty of changes to improve the playing experience. To keep Pokemon Go always exciting and fresh, Niantic keeps launching new events and upgrades. December 2020 is about to end soon, but several surprises are waiting for the fans to enjoy. Pokemon Go will host this year’s annual Game Awards, and for this celebration, Niantic has decided to bring an event of 24hr.

There are already several events going on, and adding one more will not sunrise the trainers. However, this event could help many players who want to have a wide variety of rewards. So here are some important details of the event.

Basic Bonus

The Pokemon Go events are always unique, and the special Games Awards bonuses are unexpected for players. During the event, players will get extra Stardust for catching Pokemon. Stardust is among the most important Pokemon Go items that help the trainer power their Pokemon, purchase new moves, purify Shadow Pokemon, and trade. The spawn rate of Pokemon in the wild will also increase.

However, if anyone is living in a rural area where Pokestops are not available, they can activate incense to spawn the Pokemon. The good news is that incense timing will be increased too, so whoever wants to earn Stardust can rely on incense. Incense can be purchased from the in-game shop, but if anyone doesn’t want to spend money, they have to complete Special Research Tasks.

Face Team Rocket Grunts

Apart from the extended incense effect and Stardust, players will also see many Team Rocket Grunts.  The main motive of Team Rocket Grunts is to defeat the trainer. They appear in Pokestops and Team Rocket Hot balloons. They will arrive even more during the event, so make sure to challenge them and win the battle to get powerful Shadow Pokemon.

After catching a Shadow Pokemon, players can purify them. By purifying the Pokemon, its Frustration charge move will change in Return charge move. Purifying a Pokemon increases the CP of the Pokemon. However, if anyone doesn’t want to purify the Pokemon but wants to change the Frustration charge move, they can use Charge TM. Usually, Charge TM does not change Frustration charge move. It takes an Elite Charge TM to change the Frustration move, but players can do it by normal Charge TM during the event. Players should take advantage of this limited-time feature and change the Frustration move of their Shadow Pokemon. The Shadow Pokemon deals 20% extra damage than Normal and Purified Pokemon.


Niantic earned a huge profit in 2020, but more than that, they earned many new trainers. The biggest reason for the success of Pokemon Go is its events and challenges. Niantic changes the events every week, which means trainers get new challenges and rewards every week.  In the recent announcement, they confirmed the return of Regis in Raid Battles.
