Tomorrow, Geoff Keighley will be presenting this year’s The Game Awards across 45+ streaming platforms. Livestreaming from Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo, we can expect a variety of video game announcements, deals, and special events to be announced. Sure, some news has leaked this week and we’ve been given hints as to what will premiere tomorrow. Now, though, we have a special and surprise partnership between The Game Awards and Pokémon GO.

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, December 10th, at 4 p.m. PT, you can partake in a special Pokémon GO event while watching The Game Awards from the comfort of your home. For 24 hours, the following features will be active in Pokémon GO:

  • Incense will be more effective at attracting Pokémon.
  • You’ll earn more Stardust from catching Pokémon.
  • You can use a Charged TM to help a Shadow Pokémon forget the Charged Attack Frustration.
  • Team GO Rocket Grunts will be appearing more frequently at PokéStops and in balloons.


Take advantage of these perks before they disappear on Friday, December 11th, at 4 p.m. PT.
