Pokémon GO Sustainability Week: Featured Pokémon, raids, rewards and more

In recent weeks, Pokémon GO players have been able to enjoy special periods in which they have celebrated the arrival of Spring and Easter, in addition to the Rivals’ Week that is currently taking place. Along with the arrival of the recently announced Friendship Day, the new Pokémon GO Sustainability Week is coming to the game and this time around, it will be more focused on nature and caring for the environment, thanks to a collaboration with Niantic's Sustainability Campaign.
