Pokémon GO Fest and Upcoming Live Events!

Today has been a huge day for Pokémon GO announcements. Not only are we getting another in-game event, but Niantic has announced its first live event, Pokémon GO Fest Chicago (that Knight Foundation thing didn’t count)! Niantic also teased upcoming live events in Europe and Japan.

Pokémon GO Fest Chicago

The event will be taking place at Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois, USA on July 22, 2017. It looks like this will be a paid event and details of what will happen at the event or if there will be legendary Pokémon have still been left vague. As we mentioned in the Knight Foundation article, Promo codes have been added recently. It’s very likely we could see legendary Pokémon released at this event and redeemed via a Promo code vs actually catching it.

More details coming on Monday, June 19 at 10:00 A.M. PDT, which is also when tickets are for sale.


Europe Unibail-Rodamco Events

In partnership with Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers, Pokémon GO celebrations will be hosted from June through September. More details to come.


Japan Pikachu Outbreak Event

The Pokémon Company is hosting a “Pikachu Outbreak” event in Yokohama, Japan! The event will be held in August and they be “exploring a unique Pokémon GO experience. More details to come.
