Pokemon Go 1.27.3 / 0.57.3 Download Announced, Pokemon Day Event Detailed

Niantic has not only made available Pokemon Go 1.27.3 and 0.57.3 iOS and Android version for download, but also detailed upcoming Pokemon Go Day event.

Those unaware that February 27th is world Pokemon Day, and this coming Monday is a big day to Pokemon and fans of the entire franchise. In order to join in with the celebrations, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced that it will be offering something special.

Pokemon Go is the place where things like this take place, with special versions of different Pokemon being made available for a limited time. Something similar happened this past Christmas as well among other days, and assuming everyone will enjoy looking out for special Pokemon Day versions of Pichaku, complete with party hat.


Starting February 26 at 1:00 P.M. PST and running through March 6th, special Pichaku will be available within Pokemon Go, with each wearing a party hat to celebrate the occasion.

With that said, every Pichaku collected with a party hat will continue to wear that hat forever so there is no need to worry about your special Pichaku going all “normal” one day. Cons, is that these specialists will only be available during the week we just mentioned, so if you want to add one to your collection, you better set about finding one ASAP. Now that the hunt begins on the 26th so time to get those phones charged up.

What did that update change? As for the aforementioned new version of Pokemon Go, it’s independent of this Pokemon Go Day event that has been announced by Niantic and seems to only “implement performance improvements” and nothing else, and honestly, after the Gen 2 1.27.1 / 0.57.2 update released only a week ago, this was expected.


We’ve teamed up with our friends at The Pokémon Company International for their annual celebration of all things Pokémon, and we have a special treat for you this Pokémon Day! From February 26 at 1:00 P.M. PST to March 6 at 1:00 P.M. PST, special Pikachu appearing all over the world will be celebrating Pokémon Day by wearing festive party hats.

Pokemon Go 1.27.3 for iOS and 0.57.3 for Android are rolling out right away and should be available to download from App Store and Google Play shortly.
