Niantic released the Legendary Pokemon after players caught over three billion Pokemon during the Global Catch Challenge. The challenge ended on November 26 but the rewards for double Stardust, double XP, and Lure Modules lasting six hours will last until December 1 at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET. Players were also treated to a 48 hour worldwide appearance of Farfetch’d, usually an East Asia exclusive Pokemon, while East Asia got an appearance by Australia exclusive Kangaskhan.
The Global Catch Challenge was meant to coincide with the launch of a new video series known as Pokemon Go Travel where trailers travel the world to catch Pokemon. The series starts with a group of trainers including IHasCupquake, Coisa de Nerd, and Rachel Quirico traveling to Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, and Tottori in Japan. The Global Catch Challenge concluded with a celebration at the Pokemon Go Safari Zone event in Tottori on November 26.
