Comments Off on Here are the Details for Next Month’s Stay-at-Home Pokémon Go Fest!

Niantic has released loads of details for the Pokémon Go Fest that will take place next month over two days on Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th, which will encourage you to play at home, though you can of course venture outside with family and/or friends, hopefully away from big crowds.

To take part in the two-day event, you’ll need to purchase a ticket via the in-game Pokémon Go Shop for £14.99/$14.99 UDS, which will give access for both days over the weekend.  Trainers will get access to a Special Research Story on day one that will have five rotated themes such as fire, water, grass, battle and friendship.  These themes will rotate every hour during the day one event, twice over and will be available for all Trainers.  The day one event will run from 10am to 8pm local time.

Also on day one, is a Global Challenge Arena, which will be exclusive to ticket holders.  In this task, players will work together globally to complete the challenge and once completed, you will unlock a bonus for the remainder of the hour.  During day one, you will also encounter over 75 Pokémon in the wild, as well as in Raids and via Special Research tasks.

Then for day two, there will be plenty more to look forward too, though Niantic are keeping details close to their chest as they want it to be a surprise for Trainers.  This surprise will be exclusive to ticket holders over the weekend.  As a bonus, you’ll also be able to download printable paper crafts and decorations for your favourite Pokémon via

Also leading up to the Pokémon Go Fest, whether you purchase an event ticket or not, there will be weekly challenges in the form of Pokémon Go Fest 2020 Time Research lines, which will unlock Pokémon encounters, further details on these tasks will be revealed at a later date.

Niantic has also pledged to donate a minimum of $5 million of the proceeds generated from Go Fest ticket with half of the donations going to help fund new projects from Black gaming and AR creators “that can love on the Niantic platform” and the other half going to US non-profit organisations to help local communities.
