Gone are a days where Seattle’s streets were flooded with Pokémon GO players, indicating their phones during augmented-reality beasts and perplexing to “catch ’em all.” But loyal fans are entrance together once again to applaud a app’s initial birthday.

Pokémon trainers are assembly during noon Saturday during Bellevue Downtown Park for a anniversary event. So far, 200 people are formulation to go, with roughly 500 some-more fans expressing interest, according to a Facebook page for a event.

To symbol a anniversary, a association that combined a game, Niantic, unleashed a chronicle of Pikachu wearing his dear tutor Ash Ketchum’s signature hat. If a tutor finds one in a wild, a limited-time Pokémon will lay alongside Pikachus wearing Santa hats and celebration hats that were expelled during prior celebrations.

The Pokémon GO Seattle Facebook organisation is hosting a Bellevue gathering, and organizers Jasmine Hayes and Jesse Rieke contend they’ll be lighting adult a park with lures for hours. To make it easier for those who have put their app aside over a past year, a lures will be trustworthy to Pokéstops that should attract a lot of Pokémon to one place.

The game’s central recover date was Jul 6, 2016, yet Rieke pronounced a weekend was improved for bringing people together. “We did a check in mixed PoGo pages, and even yet a central one year is on a 6th, Saturday worked best for a meet-up,” he pronounced in a contention on a eventuality page.

Hayes and Rieke contend a park has 5 in-game gyms (three shown here on a map) for members of Team Valor, Instinct or Mystic to take over and acquire come coins.

Despite a illusive liquid of Pokémon critters during a park, trainers still won’t be means to locate them all. Niantic has teased players with reports about a mythological Pokémon such as Mew and Mewtwo, yet even after a year, they haven’t been released.

Frustrated that spots 150 and 151 on their Pokédex are still blank, some fans are speculating that these beasts will make their entrance during Niantic’s Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago on Jul 22. Niantic has kept still on a matter.
