Trainers,

Looking to make a difference this Earth Day, April 22? Like to play Pokémon GO? In collaboration with Mission Blue, we’re hosting local cleanup events around the world for Pokémon GO players, and you’re invited! Earth Day is a time to appreciate the places in which we live, and to find ways to help care for the planet. To help do our part, we will be hosting cleanup events around the globe!

Mission Blue, an organization dedicated to protecting the oceans, needs the help of Pokémon GO Trainers. If enough Trainers globally attend and partake in the cleanup efforts, they will unlock the following rewards worldwide:

  • 1,500 attendees: 2× catch Stardust for Grass-, Water-, and Ground-type Pokémon for 48 hours
  • 3,000 attendees: 3× catch Stardust for Grass-, Water-, and Ground-type Pokémon for 48 hours
