Pokemon Go Gives Thanks With Double XP and Stardust

Pokemon Go Gives Thanks With Double XP and Stardust

Do the same amount of work in half of the time until the end of November.

Niantic has announced another special holiday period for its hit mobile title, Pokemon Go. From 7pm ET/4pm ET on November 22 until 7pm ET/4pm ET on November 29, the game will be offering double experience and Stardust for all actions in-game.

"It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you - and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community," the team said in a statement.

That's it. No turkey-esque Pokemon additions like Farfetch'd, Unfezant, or Ho-Oh. No Thanksgiving-themed uses for all those Pidgeys you have in your Pokedex. At least you'll have that sweet experience while you're trying your best to avoid your family.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
