Video games - Pokémon Go launches new tasks in December 2020
Pokémon go launched on July 6, 2016, and from the first moment, it was a hit. The success of this game is based on the use of Augmented Reality, making it one of the most striking mobile video games.
Starting December 1, players will receive Darumaka for completing a week of stamp collecting, which evolves into Darmaitan, a pretty good fire-type attacker.
Completing individual tasks also generates better rewards. Rare Pokémon like Aerodactyl can be task rewards, as well as significant loot like Rare Candy or Golden Razzberries, so we expect to see quite a few “Trainers” out on the streets trying to get these rewards.
