'Pokémon GO' announces EU Marill Day make-up event date

True to its promise, Niantic finally confirms the date for the Pokémon GO Marill Day make-up event in the European region.

On April 12, Niantic hosted “GO Battle Day: Marill” to celebrate the launch of the GO Battle League leaderboard globally.

It was a milestone event; however, there were some server issues in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. Nevertheless, Niantic addressed the concern and promised a make-up event for the affected trainers.

Indeed enough, almost two weeks after the original GO Battle Day event, the Pokémon GO maker finally gives its EU players a date for the Marill Day re-do.

Make-up date for EU trainers

On its official Twitter page, Pokémon GO marks April 26 for the make-up GO Battle Day: Marill event across Europe.

Not only is Niantic repeating the event for the sake of the affected Europe-based trainers, but the mobile game giant also has something in store for all its players globally.

Accordingly, there’s going to be two GO Battle League sets, on top of the five regular sets on that day.

If the same event mechanics apply, EU trainers will be able to enjoy 20 sets of GO Battle League battles from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time on April 26.

Make sure to use a Premium Battle Pass to secure Marill as a guaranteed Premium Reward for every GO Battle League win.

Other Pokémon GO events and updates

Niantic has been quite busy making sure its players will be able to continue enjoying the game despite the unfortunate circumstances.

The San Francisco-based company has been hard at work to adjust its gameplay to a more indoor-conducive structure and coming up with many interactive events.

Before the make-up Marill event on April 26, trainers all around the world will have the previously canceled Abra Community Day on April 25.

In view of the Abra event, Niantic introduces “Community Day: Play at Home Edition.” This special event will have a “Community Day–exclusive Special Research story” entitled “Investigating Illusions!” with big rewards such as 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar, and more.

During the event, the time duration of the Incense will be extended up to three hours. Also, the whole Abra Day celebration will last for six hours instead of the usual three.

Meanwhile, the Buddy Up event still ongoing until April 27. The “Landorus in raids,” on the other hand, is extended until April 28, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7).

Lastly, the 1 PokéCoin rotation has been refreshed, and this time, the discounted purchase will get players 50 Great Balls.

The offer will only be available until Monday next week, April 27, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7).
