Niantic Updates Players On "Pokémon GO" Event Changes

In the wake of what's going on in the world right now, Niantic has updated its players as to what's happening with a few events in Pokémon GO. The company briefly released details yesterday about a few events, which you can read below. Some have been extended to give people more time to play while one has been canceled outright.

  • Cobalion in five-star raids and as GO Battle League rewards: This event has been extended until Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7).

No word yet how many other events will be affected, or whether or not Pokémon GO will even have continued events in the months to come with cities being put on lockdown. But if you have the ability to go out and get some exercise and fresh air while practicing social distancing, please do it.
