while we’re ​waiting for the Grass event to start, Niantic surprised us with a promotional email recapping the past few weeks in the game.

Interestingly, they shared top 5 countries that participated in the Eggstravaganza event. Here are the top five countries in order of distances walked by local Pokémon Trainers:

  1. United States
  2. Japan
  3. Taiwan
  4. United Kingdom
  5. Germany

Among other things, they shared more information about the loading screens and the process behind them:

Pokémon GO’s famous loading screens are created by Mieke Hutchins, who is on the Niantic design team.

Mieke designs each piece in collaboration with a cross­functional team, and each screen goes through several versions before the final artwork becomes part of the game.

Soon, the Pokémon GO loading screens will be available for download to be used as wallpaper on your phone. We’ll post a link in the official Pokémon GO blog and pages when they become available.

In other words, nothing major was shared, but its nice to get an email anyway.
