Pokémon GO Friendship Weekend

Some say, “Friends are the family you choose.” I, personally, tend to agree with that. I also cannot even begin to explain how much my PoGO friends and my community mean to me. Luckily for us, Niantic is helping us out with another Pokémon GO Friendship Weekend event!
