Last week Niantic issues a week-long challenge to the world. If everyone can collect a total of 3 billion Pokemon, new rewards will be unlocked worldwide. The Pokemon GO community reached this goal with about 30 hours to spare.

With the final goal reached, the final reward is ours. for today and tomorrow only, Farfetch’d can be found worldwide, a Pokemon previously region-exclusive. In this same span of time, you will now be able to find Kangaskhan in East Asia, compared to the previous restriction of only Oceania.
The previous rewards leading up to this final goal were double XP, double Stardust, 6 hour long lures. These were unlocked at the halfway mark of 1.5 billion Pokemon and will be available until Friday, December 1.
Great job anyone and everyone who helped reach this goal, it was a fun and exciting event to take place. Odds are next we will have another Christmas event coming to this December. Be sure to stay tuned for any exciting news until then.
