Pokemon GO Plans Community Events in Public Places for US Players
  • Pokémon GO and Ingress Plans to Host Community Events in Restricted Public Areas Around the US

The company Niantic is to arrange for restricted areas in cities of the United States where fans could play Pokemon GO.

Niantic plans on sponsoring a Pokemon GO event that is unique in that it is the first one of its kind. Niantic has done other events before in its history but not at such a scale or level. One of the earlier events was in order to raise funds for the victims of the Japanese tsunami.

This one though involves a live game scenario. Niantic and Knight Foundation have joined forces to arrange for a series of “Open Streets”. The urban blocks and neighborhoods will be sealed off to all traffic. Instead parties will take place there for all the gaming enthusiasts.

According to Forbes, the first event in the series will take place in North Carolina two days from now. There will be more than a dozen PokeStops and two gyms along the route which goes on for a distance of 2.5 miles.

Since video games are an excellent and harmless way to pass the time and they build better coordination and also sharpen the reflexes, this is an ideal platform for promoting the Pokemon GO phenomenon.

Niantic may have much more up its sleeves than it has revealed up until now. Such events will be a common thing in the future as well. As for this one, it will be a fun-filled fiesta of revelry and enthusiasm.

According to 9to5mac, Niantic excels in augmented reality games such as Pokemon GO. It will not let this chance of appealing to the popular tastes of the game-loving crowds go to waste. This is a perfect example of allowing people an opportunity to connect with the world around them using the latest entertainment technology.

The public space reserved for the event will provide a safe haven for gamers. They can gather there and enjoy themselves for awhile.

According to Polygon, this event is just the barest peek into Pokemon GO’s future status as a craze that has taken the world by storm. Via this drive, the gaming community will also get to know their respective cities better.

They can thus become street-wise and take in some fresh air in the Great Outdoors. To find the object of your desire in a certain corner of your city by just going in search of it through all sorts of obstacles also allows for some healthy physical exercise.

The public events lined up for the summer by Niantic will be fun and fantastic. They are meant exclusively for all the freedom-loving Americans who long to explore their environment and are a curious bunch to boot.
