Pokémon Go Fest is the game’s big event of the year, boosting Pokémon spawn rates and giving players two days of bonuses. Our Pokémon Go Fest 2022 event guide lists out the rotating habitats for increased Pokémon spawns, bonuses, and other info you’ll need to successfully catch ’em all (or as many as you can) during the event.


Pokémon Go Fest ticket bonuses and perks

Pokémon Go Fest is a paid event where some perks are locked behind a ticket you can buy for $14.99. A majority of the features are available to players even if they don’t have a ticket, but you’ll need a ticket for the following:

Saturday ticket bonuses

  • Unown, regional Pokémon (Torkoal, Tropius, Galarian Mr. Mime), and rare Pokémon (Galarian Weezing, Klink, Axew, Pancham, Galarian Darumaka) Incense spawns
  • Specific Collection Challenges for each rotating habitat
  • Global Challenges with hourlong bonuses
  • An increased chance to find Shiny Pokémon via Incense

Sunday ticket bonuses

  • Another Special Research Task set
  • Specific Pokémon attracted to Incense (the same ones from Saturday)
  • Team Go Rocket balloons appear more frequently, doubled Mysterious Component rewards

Bonuses for both days

  • Up to nine free Raid Passes from gyms
