There is a ton of news to cover this week as we prepare to say goodbye to the Season of Alola. With the Water Festival giving way to a last chance at Seasonal Spawns before the Alola to Alola event sweeps in, we still have plenty to do before we close the month. First we look back over the last week and how both the Water Festival and the Safari Zone in Seville have gone over great with the Community. This may have been the first week in a while where the general social sentiment was on the positive side of the fence.
Two announcements came this week involving Amazon Prime Gaming. First is a collaboration with Prime Student to bring May Community Day activations to select Universities. We think this is a great initiative and an awesome way to execute on some grass roots marketing. Next up is PGO being added to Prime Gaming Loot which will give Prime users some items to redeem every month.
In massive news, Niantic Social will be seeing a ton of new features come to Pokémon GO in the near future, some of which will be part of a stand alone Niantic App. We could see “near” in game communication and coordination come with this new app, which has been tested by select Ingress Agents in a closed beta over the last few months. It will be very interesting to see how the community adopts this tool and how it may disrupt existing Discord servers.
With Ticket Gifting going live in game we move on to the Alola to Alola event which will close out the month. While we still have questions on how the bonus ticket will work, Trainers will have some agency in how they choose to complete their last Special Research of the Season. Will it cause fomo or will Trainers not care? TIme will tell!
