Pokémon Go Fest 2020 took place this past weekend, but the online event didn’t go off without a hitch. Some players experienced technical difficulties on Saturday, July 25, so developer Niantic is offering a brief makeup period.

On Sunday, Aug. 16, Go Fest activities will return to the mobile game, letting players experience what they might have missed.

The Pokémon Go Fest 2020 global makeup event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time on Aug. 16. During the three-hour window, Pokémon that were featured in Go Fest’s Fire, Water, and Friendship habitats will appear more frequently for players who purchased tickets. Go Fest 2020 ticket holders will also get some extra freebies: two Incense and two Remote Raid Passes, as well as Gifts that can contain Rare Candies. (Incense will also last one hour.)

During Go Fest, a series of themed habitats rotated in and out, letting players catch a variety of Pokémon that may normally be hard to find.

Here’s the schedule for Pokémon Go Fest 2020 global makeup event. All times listed are local:

  • 11 a.m.: Fire
  • 12 p.m.: Water
  • 1 p.m.: Friendship
