Parting words

We applaud Niantic for setting up this Challenge during a pandemic, regardless of the health and safety implications of higher-level raids. We felt there were enough easier raid bosses to allow everyone to do a solo raid to help the cause.

We’re a bit saddened by the fact that it took almost the entire event to unlock the bonus, but it says a lot about the current state of the game in Pokémon GO. COVID is taking its toll on the active player base, and raids have been particularly hard hit, remote pass or not.

We hope to see more global initiatives in the coming weeks.
