You’ll receive huge XP bonuses for successfully catching Pokémon with Nice, Great and Excellent Throws, as well as Curveballs and First Throws. Also, you’ll earn even more XP for hatching Eggs. Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop.

This event ends on June 20, 2017.

It truly is no ordinary day in Stella City. You walk around and the first thing you notice are–

… Spoons?

That’s right. They are hanging everywhere. Plastic and silver spoons alike. They’re made into tinsels that hang from shops and trees, scattered across the place, or simply planted in the ground.

Legend says that if you find the golden spoon, something good will happen to you. Alas… That’s merely a story the shopkeepers will tell you.

Once you reach The Ram, you find it has a banner hanging from its neck:


     children play,
     during the longest day

    enjoy the light,
    until the shortest night

summer has come

Now nothing is making any sense anymore.

Anyway… Happy Summer Solstice?

It doesn’t look like anything specific is going on in town. You do notice, however, that bus tickets to the beach are free this weekend. That’s a little suspicious. Maybe something is happening on the Saturday, the 24th…

anonymous asked:

Steven, you're put in charge of creating some holidays for the major religions of Planetos. What significant events from each religion's history would you choose?


For the Faith of the Seven, I’m thinking significant events: the Anointing of Hugor of the Hill, the first landing on the shores of Westeros, the Battle of Seven Stars, the founding of the Starry Sept, the crowning of King Aegon I, the birth and/or death of Baelor the Blessed. Oh, and days to praise each of the Seven, which we already knew about. 

For R’hllorism, I’m going to guess more solar-based events: the solstices, the equinoxes, the eclipses, etc. 

The worship of the Old Gods seems too decentralized to have holidays, but I could see holidays around the changing of the seasons, the harvest cycle, etc. 

The Drowned God thinks that holidays are for the weak.

Summary: Jack remembers this time of the year fondly, or at least he used to. When he’s begrudgingly dragged out to a place full of memories Jack doesn’t think anything good could come of it. Turns out he was wrong, and is not only reminded by his friends, but by the person he’s missed the most.
