Niantic Labs, the developers of Pokemon GO, are celebrating their 5th Anniversary with plenty of prizes for players — but you only have a limited time to claim these rewards. The big day was actually a few days ago, but the presents are just being handed out to players. On Sunday, October 4th Niantic held a special event that’s since ended, but you still have a week or more to claim a bunch of prizes off the official Pokemon GO website.
Due to the lockdown, Pokemon GO has changed in small but significant ways. If you want to learn about some of these changes, check out our guide detailing how Pokemon GO lets you play in-doors, and even how to battle Team Rocket GO and Giovanni at home. You can also join raids remotely now! And these changes are going to stay for a very long time.
