Thanksgiving Special: Double XP and Stardust in Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go players rejoice as Niantic has updated the game to allow players to level up their characters and Pokémon faster as a Thanksgiving celebration.

From November 23rd until November 30th, all players will receive double the amount of XP and Stardust from all sources. Be it hatching eggs, catching Pokémon or defeating gyms, players will gain XP and Stardust quicker during the duration of the event.

Niantic has also made some balance changes that will see certain Pokémon have their CP raised or lowered. Some Pokémon that will be buffed includes Alakazam, Rhydon and Gengar.

Finally, Niantic has implemented Ditto into the game. As Ditto is known to transform into other Pokémon, any Pokémon that you attempt to capture could very well be a Ditto in disguise. If you’ve been looking for a Ditto all this while, it’s probably a good idea to catch every single Pokémon you meet instead of skipping over the ones that you’ve already got.
