Once you've got the Stardust out of your eyes and pockets, be sure to catch up on the other recent happenings in the world of Pokémon GO. At the end of last month, Pokémon storage was finally increased to 2,500, so Trainers have plenty of space for storing their various critters. The Team Rocket invasion is still going on, so if you haven't had the chance to take back any gyms or fight any corrupted Pokémon yet, this is your chance.

Pokémon Trainers in Canada should be aware that the Safari Zone Montreal event is happening soon, with ticket prices and other information going up in the near future. Even if you're not able to go to the actual ticketed event, there'll be plenty of bonuses you can access during the period in which the event is happening, from September 20 through September 22, 2019.
