What are anomalies?


I have been playing for more than a year and I still have many doubts regarding the game. One of these doubts is ANOMALIES. I regularly see a lot of players who have anomaly medals and I wish I could get some.


What are anomalies?

How can I participate?

Thank for the info.

    Anomalies are faction vs. faction events put on by Niantic on specific dates in specific cities. The most recent ones were held in autumn of 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on in-person events. Only Niantic can say when and where the next ones will be held.

    In the meantime, the following links might give you a sense of what the mechanics of anomalies are like:

    There's also a huge social component. If you know anyone who's participated in anomalies, ask them for their stories. 😃
