Pokemon GO fireworks appeared in the skies toward the end of Niantic Lab's annual Pokemon GO Fest—Day 1.

Niantic Labs are doing everything they can to make this year's localized Pokemon GO Fest feel just as special as the previous. Due to the global pandemic situation that has shut down most of the world, Niantic decided to bring its annual festival event directly into the hands of its audience. For the first time ever, trainers can enjoy Pokemon GO Fest programming from the comfort of their own homes.

Pokemon GO Fireworks Explained

There's not much to say about the firework effects dominating much of Pokemon GO trainers' skies during the night. Much like the confetti that falls during the day, the fireworks are purely cosmetic and essentially serve no other purpose than to make the area look pretty. They're simply available to provide an extra layer of visual intrigue for those continuing their adventures at night.

In fact, trainers will likely see them again tonight after foiling Team GO Rocket's takeover.
