The warm weather is here again. The soft, fragrant winds bring a single question: Will you get back into the Pokémon GO groove?
Niantic has a bit of motivation in store for you. The app publisher is teaming up with the Knight Foundation (a national organization dedicated to fostering "informed and engaged communities") to bring neighborhoods together via Pokémon GO and Niantic's first augmented reality app, Ingress.
The collaboration kicks off in Charlotte, North Carolina on May 7 as part of the Open Streets 704 event, a car-free day in the heart of the city. Pokémon GO players can visit 16 PokéStops and two Gyms selected by the City of Charlotte.
The car-free route covers 2.5 miles, and the aforementioned PokéStops and Gyms will bear physical identifiers, too.
The press release distributed by Niantic earlier today states the Charlotte event will be "experimental," but if all goes well, we should see similar events take place across the United States. Find out more at the Knight Foundation's official website.
