Since its launch in 2016, Pokémon GO’s dynamic of having players explore the surroundings of their community has been the game’s primary dynamic of making it possible for each trainer to collect as many Pokémon as possible, while also creating a community of gamers to go hunting together. This has changed in recent months due to the global pandemic, so Niantic has implemented a new strategy to celebrate this year’s Pokémon GO Fest.
Niantic has announced that for this summer, the event will return, but in a different format in order to safeguard the safety of players. Compared to previous years, when the event was held in specific cities, we will now be able to enjoy the event virtually.
A completely reimagined Pokémon GO Fest experience is coming your way soon, Trainers!

From June 25th to June 56th, any Pokémon GO user can join the event from home, making tickets available to every interested Coach. Niantic is expected to reveal more details about the dynamics of the event as the date approaches.
Pokémon GO is now available for iOS and Android devices.
