The first round of Professor Willow’s Global Challenge took place on June 30 and July 1 during the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event in Dortmund, Germany. Since all of the requirements of the challenge were met, players have unlocked XP bonuses for catching Pokémon, hatching Eggs and participating in Raid Battles. Trainers have also unlocked a bonus to make Lucky Eggs last for one hour until July 9.

In addition, Trainers worldwide are able to receive five free Raid Passes when they spin a Photo Disc at a Gym for Articuno Day, featuring the Legendary Pokémon Articuno. It’s officially July 7 in various territories, which means Articuno is now available in Raid Battles around the world for a three-hour period. You may be able to encounter its rare Shiny form as well. See below for event hours in your region:

  • The Asia-Pacific region: 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST (GMT +9)
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: 9:00 a.m.to 12:00 p.m. UTC (GMT +0)
  • The Americas and Greenland: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PT (GMT -8)

Pokémon GO developer Niantic has postponed the Articuno Day event in Japan due to extreme weather conditions. A new date has yet to be announced, but the developer is apologizing for canceling it right before it was about to begin.
