Announcing: The Russia Wayfarer Challenge
Thank you to all our Wayfinders that have participated in our Poland and India Wayfarer Challenges! We have received a lot of great submissions and added many new Wayspots through those initiatives, and we want to maintain this momentum as we move to our next destination: Russia.
We are proud to announce our next initiative: the Russia Wayfarer Challenge! From 1 June 2021 at 00:00 a.m. MSK until 16 June 2021 at 00:00 a.m. MSK, eligible Wayfinders in Russia or those who review Russian Wayspots (via your home/bonus location ) can participate by reviewing Wayspot nominations in the country. For this challenge, we will be reducing the cooldown periods and increasing the limit to change your hometown settings if you are a local but living abroad.
This collaborative challenge also enables Trainers and Agents to unlock special rewards (for your Wayfarer reviews) in Pokémon GO and Ingress, based on the number of approved Wayspots by the end of the initiative. Trainers Level 38 and higher and Agents Level 10 and above are able to participate.
If you are eligible but have not used Wayfarer before, get started by signing in with the Facebook or Google account linked to your Pokémon GO or Ingress profiles. After you have signed in, check out the Criteria page and take a quick quiz to learn the basics of Niantic Wayfarer, such as nominating and reviewing Wayspots. You can also check out our onboarding video here. Over the next few weeks, we will be publishing new resources for beginner Wayfinders to use and get accustomed to the Wayfarer program.
For this event, each game will provide special rewards on 18 June 2021 based on a singular Wayspot approval goal:
Rewards - 3000+ New Wayspots Accepted
- Pokémon GO: 50 Pokéballs, 1 Super Incubator, 1 Incense, and 1 Premium Raid Pass
- Ingress: 20 Resonators, 20 Hypercubes, 3 Rare Heat Sinks, 3 Rare Multi-Hacks, and 3 SoftBank Ultra Links
We are very excited to be experiencing this challenge with our Russian community and helping them improve and enhance their gameplay experience. If you have any questions, please ask them in the Russia Wayfarer Challenge category.
See you out there!
