Still, this is truly an event that Pokemon fans everywhere can take advantage of while still playing Pokemon GO while practicing social distancing. While practicing and playing safely, they can also celebrate the events of Pokemon GO Fest.

The days where Pokemon GO Fest 2020 will be held are over the weekend from July 25th and July 26th, the time frame on when events will take place are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. to wherever the player’s local time zone take place during the hours of the event.

Each day, the player will be given specific instructions that the player can accomplish for special field research that will include a special story. Trainers will only be able to access these events with a purchase of a ticket to participate in Pokemon GO Fest.

To purchase the ticket, the player must make an in-game purchase through the shop. The ticket price is totaled at $14.99 (or local currency equivalent) which will ask the player to purchase through the app store account. Once the player makes the purchase, they have the freedom to participate in the weekend’s events that await them.

The Agenda for the Days Events for Pokemon GO Fest 2020

Day One of Pokemon GO Fest will be loaded with content for the player to participate in. From the hours of the event beginning, the special story field research will go underway along with the days featured events.

There will be five rotating habitats themed for specific Pokemon that will be available each hour on the hour for trainers to possibly catch. The five habitats include fire, water, grass, battle, and friendship that will feature special Pokemon that feat each special habitat.

Trainers will actively work together in the Global Challenge Arena, which will be a collaboration with other trainers that will change each hour. If the trainers are successful with completing each challenge, trainers can receive bonuses until the end of the hour when the challenge took place. Trainers will encounter over 75 different species of Pokemon in the wild, raids, and completing the Special Research tasks throughout the day.

Day Two of Pokemon GO Fest will be very different from the first day. In fact, nothing has been reported to what will carry on during the hours of the second day of the event. Niantic has kept it a secret and is holding a surprise for the trainers participating in Pokemon GO Fest who have purchased tickets.

There will be an additional field research story that carries their events. One can assume that these special research events will change every hour like the day before. It is unknown what Pokemon will be featured the next day or if they will change at all from the 75 species. Since the introduction of Unova Pokemon, the total Pokemon from the National Pokedex cap off at 649, it is very possible that the variety of Pokemon can change from the day prior.

There has also been a handful of legendary and mythical Pokemon that have not made their appearance in Pokemon GO, perhaps they will be featured in raid battles for the first time at Pokemon GO Fest?

Since the debut of the first time of Pokemon GO Fest, the event would normally be held in a city for trainers to travel to and participate in; which was also similar to small city events that feature Safari Zone events. The unfortunate turn of the events of the international pandemic forced Niantic and host cities to cancel future events like this that were planning on hosting these events.

The creators have approached these obstacles and have made playing Pokemon GO more effectively for trainers to participate in events so that they can continue playing responsibly during a pandemic.
