Thank you from Pokémon Go! This year was such a successful year as it was the first time the GO fest came to us and was available on a on global platform!
Here are some of the reports on what was accomplished last weekend:
Along with the global event, a new feature was added, The Global Challenge Arena! This allowed all trainers from around the world to connect towards one common goal, win your challenges and unlock bonuses!
Needless to say, it was a fun and successful event! Now we can all look forward to the next event.......Ultra Unlock! Look for the announcement coming soon........
Today is the day, Pokémon Go Fest 2020 has begun!
What we've seen so far is every hour there has been a different habitat spawning long with a coordinating challenge. Each hour you need to catch 20 pokémon of whatever habitat is present that hour. The confetti falling down from the sky will give you a clue as to what habitat the game is on.
Watch out for Friendship hour and save up giving and receiving gifts until this hour starts as you'll benefit more from opening them up!
We've seen some pretty rare Pokémon so far. Lots of unknowns, a flareon popped up and a rare Rotom!
Get out there and enjoy the day!
Every hour new research challenges are coming up. Each challenge is connected to a certain Pokémon habitat!
From July 17th to July 22nd, Pokémon Go has announced their last week of the friendship challenge!
During this event you'll see these Pokémon's spawn in the wild.
Also, keep your eye out for Bellsprout's evolution in shiny form!
In the 'Today's View Research', if one million players from each team complete the research, more Pokémon will spawn during Go Fest!
