Niantic offers Pokemon GO players who were affected by various issues during this week’s Mega Kangaskhan Raid Day event, free items as an apology. Pokemon GO has held many special in-game events, either to celebrate a particular Pokemon or to promote an upcoming Pokemon. Pokemon game or movie – as well as various holiday celebrations. This year’s round Pokemon GO events have included a Ditto-themed April Fool’s Day celebration, the Festival of Colors event which featured the Gen 7 flying-type Oricorio, and Pokemon GO Lush jungle that featured grass and bug types like Tapu Lele, Fomantis, and Lurantis.
The last Pokemon GO took place earlier this week and focused on Mega Kangaskhan, an enhanced version of the popular Gen 1 Normal-type known for carrying a baby in its pouch like a real-world kangaroo. Fans were certainly thrilled to have the chance to catch Mega Kangaskhan after he was added to Pokemon GO in March, to the point that some went so far as to bake Mega Kangaskhan-themed pies in preparation for Raid Day. However several Pokemon GO players who logged in on Sunday to track down the elusive parent-child duo had their experience hampered due to the difficulty levels being too high for Kangaskhan, with less Mega Energy offered as rewards for defeating him. The game also stopped handing out free Raid Passes two hours early, meaning some players missed out on the chance to participate in the event entirely.
Developer Niantic is aware of the many issues players are experiencing this week Pokemon GO Mega Kangaskhan Raid Day and is giving everyone affected a bundle of free rewards to make up for it. According to the official Niantic Support Twitter account, Pokemon GO users from the nine regions who were negatively impacted during the Pokemon GO The Mega Kangaskhan event can claim a free bundle containing five Premium Raid Passes and a Lucky Egg in the shop from now until 5:00 PM GMT/10:00 AM PT on Friday, May 6.
