According to the creators of the application, they managed to collect 145 tons of garbage around the world. Volunteers worked in problem areas such as Mexican dams, wholly clogged with waste.

The developers also noted that everyone who participated in the large-scale cleaning was presented with unique prizes and awards at Pokemon Go. The players gathered in teams and performed the gathering in different territories, the number of such campaigns amounted to 176 meetings.

At the same time, Niantic stressed that the action was held for the second year in a row, the last time they managed to collect only 6.5 tons of garbage. But now the Orden de Guadalupe A.C. organization collaborated with them, which was able to attract other participants from Mexico and collect 30 thousand tons of waste on the same territory.

The action also served as a pretext for holding several educational events in which children were told about the need to save the Earth.
