We wanted to provide an update on the status of the rewards following the completion of the challenge.
Thanks again for everyone’s contributions to this event. I will provide an additional update as soon as possible.
As has been previously reported, participants in the India Challenge who are not geographically located in India didn't experience the full intended rewards within Pokémon GO. On behalf of the Wayfarer team, I'm very sorry for those of you who were impacted by this issue.
I have been working with the Pokémon GO team to come up with an alternate reward for participants, unfortunately we will not be able to repeat the Murkrow reward event. As a makeup for this and in appreciation of the participants, these users will receive the following:
These rewards will be distributed to participants over the next few days.
Again, my sincerest apologies for the situation and thanks for your patience and understanding while I worked with the Wayfarer and Pokémon GO teams to sort through everything.
