Where is Pokemon GO Fest 2020 in light of the pandemic putting most large gatherings on hold?
It appears that Niantic Labs isn't about to back down from the recent COVID-19 restrictions. The company has decided to go forward with their massive annual event: Pokemon GO Fest. However, this year, things will be a little different. Instead of having trainers travel to the event site, the event programming will be coming to them wherever they are.
Trainers will still be able to look forward to everything previous years had to offer — including the exclusive merchandise.
Where is Pokemon GO Fest 2020?
The short answer to this question is: in the app.
Anyone with access to the Pokemon GO app and a stable internet connection can now take part in the first virtual Pokemon GO Fest event. Tickets are now available for purchase for $14.99 from the in-game shop. Once purchased, trainers can find their ticket in their bag as proof of entry.
Pokemon GO Fest programming will be active for all eligible trainers on July 25 and July 26 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. A few days before, these trainers will receive an in-game medal regarding their participation in the event.
Each day has a unique special research quest line that can be completed at any time once started.
More information about this event can be found on Niantic's official Pokemon GO blog.
