The Pokémon GO India Wayfarer Challenge brings together both wanderers and people at home. By offering eligible players to point and review new way spots, the experience is expanded to everyone including those who don’t have the time or patience to go around.
Timeline of the Pokémon GO India Wayfarer Challenge
The event will take place from March 16 at 12:00 A.M. IST until March 26 at 12:00 A.M. IST, keeping it in sync with the Holi festival of India, as evident from the theme of the event. It allows Trainers and Agents to unlock special rewards for the reviews in Pokémon GO and also in Ingress, based on the number of approved Wayspots when the event ends. Trainers Level 38 and higher and Agents Level 10 and above are eligible.
How to participate
If you meet the conditions but have never used Wayfarer before, sign in with the Facebook or Google account linked to your Pokémon GO or Ingress profiles.
