Pokemon GO Fest 2020

Release Dates:

July 25th - 26th 2020

Cost:

Due to the global circumstances in 2020, Pokémon GO Fest shifted from a fixed location event to a play at home event. Players who purchase the ticket get new Special Research, bonuses and more Pokémon spawns. Players with the ticket can play for both days.

On Day 1, the event rotates every hour with different habitats going through the following, before rotating again and again. The habitats and challenges are as follows, with the challenge unlocking rewards for the rest of the hour:

If 24 of the challenges are completed, all three weeks of Ultra Unlocks are activated.

During the event, confetti will rain down on the map as an aesthetical choice, this will display an icon of the current challenge if not complete. It also culminates in fireworks at night. Your Buddy Pokémon may pick this up as a souvenir.

Day 1 and Day 2 ran different concepts.
