Pokemon Go: How to do a trade of over 10,000 km for the World Tourism Day Event?
The biggest challenge in completing this task is that trade needs to happen in one trade. It cannot be done in combinations. The best way to do this trade is by visiting /r/pokemongotrades/ and adding friends from far away regions.
Players can open gifts & hatch 7km Eggs from that far away region or location. Then trade those Pokemon with distance over 10,000 km.
Speaking of the event bonuses, players will get 2 x XP from Pokestops. Also, during this event, only 1/4 Stardust will be required for Trading. Under the event, Mime Jr. has also made its debut in the game. Mime Jr. will hatch from 5 km eggs in Europe.
A new United Nations World Tourism Organization T-shirt has also been added to the style shop under the event. Many regional Pokemon will hatch from 5 km eggs under this world Tourism Day event. Shiny Zangoose and Seviper are now also available for the game.
