This occasion will happen on the 22nd of July, 2017, and between at times we’ll be operating down the small print – like learn how to get a ticket.

Chicago is the place the place Pokemon GO may have its first correct real-life occasion hosted by Niantic. This occasion is going down only a couple weeks after the sport formally turns 1-year outdated – that’s one yr after the sport was launched previous Beta mode for each iOS and Android gadgets. Right here after a yr is full, Pokemon GO Fest will happen in probably the most superior parks in the USA: Grand Park, Chicago.
The occasion is geo-fenced to the park through the occasion – and clearly not each individual on this planet will be capable of attend. As such, Niantic is making ready options that’ll go dwell for the sport through the occasion – someday solely – that we’ll be capable of share quickly. Those who’ll be going TO the occasion, however, will be capable of participate in an entire mess of superior mini-event happenings.
Lounges for every of the three essential groups within the recreation will probably be positioned on the park. This consists of Mystic, Valor, and Intuition – and we’re crossing our fingers there wont be any unhealthy blood. This would be the first and/or greatest alternative many individuals have to attach with individuals from their group for the way forward for the Pokemon Gymnasium! The identical goes for Raid Battles for Legendary Pokemon.
So-called “Particular PokeStops” will probably be within the park for the occasion – and doubtless for a little bit of time past the occasion’s finish. These particular stops may have “Particular 2km Eggs which might solely be obtained in Grant Park.” We’ll cross our fingers they’ll don’t have anything however Heracross inside and never simply the blob that’s Ditto – however we’ll see!
On that be aware – a “large number of Pokemon” will probably be within the park for the occasion, “together with some which have by no means been seen earlier than in Grant Park.” The picture utilized by Niantic to advertise this occasion has a Heracross within the cross-hairs of the person, so it’s secure to imagine this implies Heracross will probably be there. As we speculated earlier than, this occasion may also possible have just a few Unown launched within the park.
There’ll be an unique in-app medal accessible for being on the occasion. This Pokemon GO Fest Chicago medal will seem within the person’s profile web page with the remainder of the in-game medals. It’ll be very fancy.
Through the occasion there’ll be a sequence of what’ll very possible embrace Pokemon GO Raid Battles. As Niantic places it: “work along with hundreds of Trainers within the park and hundreds of thousands world wide to finish challenges all through the day and unlock superb in-game rewards globally.” Whereas they don’t recommend Raid Battles particularly, the timing traces up with what Niantic suggests will probably be Raid Battle releases this season.
Have a peek at our @TeamPokemonGO Twitter Portal for extra data on learn how to get tickets – when accessible – if accessible. Additionally keep in mind – Pokemon Gyms will briefly shut beginning later immediately.
