Pokemon GO Giving Double XP Through New Thanksgiving Event

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, and Niantic Inc. is celebrating with an in-game event for Pokémon Go. Players can earn double XP and Stardust when the update goes live this week.
The event kicks off at 6 p.m. Central on November 22, through 6 p.m. Central on November 30. The last event, which was based around Halloween, also increased the odds that certain ghost Pokemon would appear. At this time, it doesn’t look like a similar boost in Pokemon appearances will be included. But who knows, maybe there is a secret mythical Turkey Pokemon out there that we just haven’t found yet?
Are you still playing Pokemon Go? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
