This Year's Pokémon Go Fest Will Be Held In Your Backyard

by Andrew Reiner on May 27, 2020 at 09:26 AM

This year's Pokémon Go Fest will be held on July 25 and 26, and you don't need to travel to any particular location in the world to play it. Developer Niantic is turning this year's Fest into a global event that can be played anywhere by anyone. Tickets will be made available to as many players as possible.

The previous years' Pokémon Go Fests that were held in Chicago and other places around the world only allowed players to participate for one day. This year, players can play on both days.

If this year's Fest plays out like those in the past, this will be a great time to catch shiny Pokémon and possibly a new mythical tied to a quest. For more details on what the event may be like, check out my impressions of last year's Fest.
