In an effort to help drive sales of mobile devices and data plans worldwide, Niantic is pleased to once again provide events in two of its titles on October 12th. We our calling this our “Buy Another Device” initiative.
From 11AM-2PM local time, trainers will be treated to rare opportunities to catch a large number of an as-yet unannounced Pokémon and obtain a special moveset. Additionally on October 12, the Umbra AM Anomaly will take place in 9 cities around the world, bringing together agents to compete for control of the XM universe. The shapers have not yet determined exactly when the XM Anomaly will occur in each city, but we can confirm that if you want to maximize your opportunities to evolve powerful shiny monsters and do your part to fight for your faction, agent-trainers would benefit from using two devices to play both at once.
Stay tuned as we unveil more opportunities to offer overlapping events, such as combining a Wizards Unite Community Day with Ingress Mission Day. In the coming months we anticipate announcing additional partners in our Buy Another Device concept, so stay tuned for more exciting developments.
