posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Niantic Labs' global marketing product lead Archit Bhargava said during his speech at the 21st Annual Webby Awards on May 15 that "this summer will be legendary." The event awarded Pokémon Go with "Best Mobile Game." (Jump to 19:07 in the video below.)
While some players were briefly able to acquire Legendary Pokémon in the game before, Niantic removed them to promote "fairness," and then announced that they were not intended to be in the players' possession.
The Pokémon Go app launched in select countries including the United States on July 6, and has since launched in more than 50 countries.
