Rumors of Price Hikes on Remote Raid Passes: Is Pidgey Pandemonium a Joke?

Niantic has announced a new quest named “Pidgey Pandemonium” which will be available from April 1st, 2023 as an April Fools day prank, which is a crude joke amidst rumors of price hikes on remote raid passes. The event will start on April 1st and end the same day at 11:59PM local time.

The timing of this prank event has raised some eyebrows, given the ongoing rumors of price hikes on remote raid passes. These passes allow players to participate in raids from the comfort of their homes, which has become increasingly important due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Some players have expressed concerns that Niantic may be raising the prices of these passes, making the game less accessible and affordable for many.

The highlight of this is that perhaps you can find a shiny pidgey.
