The 2020 Game Awards take place tomorrow, December 10, and Pokemon Go is joining in on the festivities. Developer Niantic has announced it is holding a special event in the mobile game during the awards show, which will offer players increased bonuses and more chances to take on Team Go Rocket.
The Game Awards event kicks off at the same time as the awards show itself, at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET, and it runs for a full 24 hours. Throughout that time, any Incense that you use will attract more Pokemon than normal, and you’ll receive extra Stardust for catching monsters.
There will also be an increase in Team Go Rocket activity. Rocket grunts will appear more frequently in balloons and at PokeStops throughout the event. You’ll also be able to use a Charged TM to replace a Shadow Pokemon’s Frustration attack. You can read more about the event on the Pokemon Go website.
Trainers, tune in to The Game Awards tomorrow, December 10, 2020, at 4 p.m. PST! https://t.co/86AUyYLU3A

Shiny Celebi is also making its debut in the game starting December 14, while the Legendary Pokemon Kyurem is back in five-star Raids all December long.
