Interested players can now pick up tickets for this year’s Pokémon Go Fest for $14.99.
The pass will enable players to participate in exclusive events from July 25-26 from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m local time. This includes Special Research Tasks on each day, challenges to complete with other players around the world, and more.
Niantic has not said which Pokémon will be rewarded from the Special Research, but based on past events, we usually end up seeing a cutesy Mythical Pokémon. This means that this year we could be seeing Shaymin or Manaphy, two Sinnoh-region Mythicals that have not yet been released in the game.
As stated by Niantic earlier this month, all proceeds from the Pokémon Go Fest will be donated to organizations to help fund Black gaming projects, as well as community rebuilding efforts.
This is the first time Pokémon Go Fest has been held online. The event usually takes place in major cities around the world, but it has been changed to an online event this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
