Pokemon Go Thanksgiving Event

Pokemon Go Thanksgiving Event is beginning November 23, 2016

The Thanksgiving event will feature double XP and double Stardust recieved when completing ingame actions.  There may also be changes to what Pokemon spawn but I have not been able to confirm this as of yet.

Message from Niantic on the event

It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you – and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.
So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.

The Appearance of Bird and Slowbro Pokemon!

Similar to the Halloween event that had marked increases in certain spooky Pokemon it is expected that Thanksgiving will feature some increases in Thanksgiving themed Pokemon.  So far the expectation is for the Thanksgiving Pokemon Go event to increase bird Pokemon and Slowbro.  This is not confirmed at this point and is only a rumor.

TOYLAB TIP: Use this event with a Lucky Egg to get 4x XP!

A Lucky Egg doubles XP and this event double XP so the effect of using a Lucky Egg during this event is 4 times the amount of XP you would normally receive.  This is a great time to do some evolutions and go pidgey grinding.
