Pokemon Go Thanksgiving Event

So Niantic officially announces the Thanksgiving Day event. From midnight on November 23rd to November 30th us players will receive double experience and double Stardust for all in-game actions. Here is the original message from Niantic Labs:
It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you - and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.
So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.

The Pokémon GO team
So let's get down to business here the event starts in 2 days and we need to start preparing for it. You need to start collecting those Pokeballs, trainers everywhere are reporting that in the recent updates Niantic has reduced the amount of Pokeballs given at each Pokestop and they have increased the items received, not that this is a bad thing if your constantly taking over Gym's but now our focus is to "Catch Em All" so we need Pokeballs to do that.

What I do to stack up the Pokeballs is I purchased bag increase to be able to carry 600 items. So now when I go on a Pokeball run I fill up the bag, then I drop all the unnecessary items like the potions, etc. and I do it again until I have a bag full of Pokeballs. There are multiple places that have perfect setups for doing Pokeball runs in all areas, just because an area or town isn't a hotspot spawning with all kinds of creatures it should still have somewhere that has multiple Pokestops around. On our Hot Spot page each location has a Pokestop Map of the best way to do Pokeball runs in the area.

The other way to get prepared is buying Lure's, Incense and Lucky Eggs. I personally do not get the Incense because the places I hunt spawn so heavy there is absolutely no use for them, however I can not speak for individuals in rural areas. The incense may be a necessity for you, on the other hand if you are in a rural area maybe this would be a great time to think about taking a trip to a more Pokemon Go friendly spot, think about it there is a big event going on and most of us have a 4 day weekend from work so why not pack up and take a trip.

If you check out the Pokemon Go Hot Spot page which I linked above you can see where the best Pokemon Go hunting places are to go. What I will be purchasing to take with me is lots of Lure Modules and Lucky Eggs.

Trainers also please do not forget to complete your daily quests, remember we will be getting double stardust so that means 1400 stardust for the first catch of each day, and remember on that 7th day we will see a whopping 6200 stardust for the first catch of that day. This is just a simple little task that will rack up easy dust during this event!
