Pokémon GO Fest 2020 is upon us! This exciting event will take place on Saturday, July 25, and Sunday, July 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in your local time zone each day. Both days will be filled with activities for players around the globe. Some activities, such as exclusive Special Research lines, will be available only to players who have purchased a ticket, but there will also be plenty of fun for players who don’t purchase a ticket, too.

On Saturday, look forward to rotating habitats that feature a wide variety of Pokémon to battle and catch. The habitats—themed after fire, water, grass, battle, and friendship—will rotate hourly throughout the day. Trainers who have purchased a Pokémon GO Fest ticket will also be able to join the Global Challenge Arena, where players around the world can work together to unlock rewards.

New Pokémon that are available during Pokémon GO Fest 2020 include:

  • Pikachu Visor Bulbasaur (can also be Shiny)
  • Pikachu Visor Charmander (can also be Shiny)
  • Pikachu Visor Squirtle (can also be Shiny)
  • Wash Rotom (GO Fest ticket holders may find Wash Rotom after taking a GO Snapshot during Pokémon GO Fest)
  • Victini
  • Shiny Tangela
  • Shiny Tangrowth
  • Shiny Unown G
  • Shiny Unown O
  • Shiny Qwilfish
  • Shiny Woobat

Sunday’s features are still under wraps, but ticket holders can expect a special experience that day. In addition, a special Pokémon GO Fest hub will feature activities you can check out when you’re taking a break from catching Pokémon. It’ll have live updates, giveaways, and much more throughout the weekend. Plus, the hub will also have downloadable Pokémon GO Fest paper crafts and decorations that you can assemble to liven up your Pokémon GO home base.

Tickets for Pokémon GO Fest 2020 are now available in the in-app shop. Each ticket is US$14.99, plus taxes and fees where applicable. Tickets cannot be purchased with PokéCoins. You need to purchase only one ticket to fully access both days of the event. Your last chance to purchase a ticket will be July 26, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. in your local time zone, but be aware that if you purchase your ticket after the event starts, you may miss out on some of the earlier content.

Meanwhile, Niantic is investigating the current issue affecting some Trainers that causes lag and other problems with gameplay. The developer apologizes for the inconvenience and says it will provide an update via its official channels when it more information.
