As part of Niantic’s extensive Pokémon GO Summer Tour 2018, the second Pokémon GO Fest is set to take place on July 14 and July 15 in Chicago, Illinois, with tickets available from tomorrow, May 11, at 9 a.m. PDT. While Pokémon GO Fest 2018 will take place over the course of a weekend, participants will only be able to interact with the Pokémon habitats within the park for a single day. In other words, a Trainer who purchases a ticket to the event on Saturday will be unable to catch Pokémon within the park on Sunday–even if they’ve purchased a Sunday ticket. Tickets to this event are $20 per person for a single-day experience.
How do I purchase a ticket to Pokémon GO Fest 2018? The link to purchase single-day tickets to Pokémon GO Fest 2018 will be found here, and Trainers will be able to purchase them starting on May 11 at 9:00 a.m. PDT. You will be able to select the day of attendance and your starting location in the park, subject to availability. There is no difference in the experience of the two starting places, but if you have friends joining you, make sure to coordinate to buy tickets for the same day and location.
After purchase, each ticket will require a unique Pokémon GO Trainer Nickname and a shipping address in order to confirm the purchase via email registration. Failure to register could result in your purchase being cancelled with a full refund.
How many tickets can I buy? You are allowed to purchase up to six single-day tickets total to Pokémon GO Fest 2018. Remember: Each ticket will require registering a unique Trainer Nickname after purchase, so you must register six confirmed Trainer Nicknames in order to obtain the maximum number of tickets.
How do I pay for my tickets? Tickets are only purchasable via Visa, Mastercard, or American Express debit or credit card. Unfortunately, we are not supporting any other payments at this time. You will have 10 minutes to complete the purchase of your reserved tickets. After that, your reserved tickets may be released back to the sale.
