Forget about your family, Pokemon Go is having a double XP event!


What holiday?

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Niantic is holding a double XP event for Pokémon Go. Running from November 23 until the 30th, the event will double all experience and stardust gained from catching Pokémon. Now, instead of fighting over the last leg of turkey, families can fight over the Tauros in their front yard.

Niantic is holding this event to say thanks for all the fans that supported it. "We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey," reads its official blog. "So we would like to say thank you - and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community."

I don't have a smartphone, so I haven't played a whole lot of Pokémon Go. I've tinkered with my mom and sister's phones, but I mostly enjoy walking around and spending time with my family. If a silly app about catching creatures brings families together, it really can't be that bad.
