Niantic has confirmed today that it is running a special celebration event to say thanks to the millions of people who have downloaded and played Pokémon GO since its launch in July.

Between November 23rd and November 30th, players will earn double XP and Stardust:

It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you - and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.

So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.

Will this get you back into the game if you've stopped playing? Let us know with a comment.
