The first European official (Niantic sponsored) Pokemon GO event is happening right now in Paris, France, in a Unibail-Rodamco shopping mall called Les Quatre Temps.
One Reddit user attended the event and shared his photos with the GO Hub in order to make this photo report possible. ScarabeeGrillage, you are beyond awesome!
Here’s a quick summary of the event: the event did features 24 hour long Lures at the mall, new sponsored PokeStops, a Pikachu mascot for taking pictures and a few people wearing Pokemon GO shirts.
There were no event specific Pokemon, or Legendaries, or new promo codes on the event.
The general feedback we got is that these events are trials for the upcoming bigger events this summer, both in terms of organisational effort and marketing budgets. You can see the dates for other upcoming European events here.
REMINDER: Unibail-Rodamco is Niantic’s official Pokemon GO partner in Europe, featuring sponsored PokeStops and Pokemon GO promotions in Unibail-Rodamco shopping malls in selected countries. This event is one of the many planned events for this Summer.
