Pokemon Go Fest will take place on July 25 and 26 from 10 am to 8 pm each day. Tickets are on sale now for $14.99 and can be purchased from the in game shop. One ticket will grant you access to both days of the event. Unlike previous years, the event will take place entirely online. Because of this, there is no limit on the number of tickets and you will be able to participate in the event from anywhere.
There will be two special research stories that you will have access. You will have to open the game on each day of the event to start the special research story.
Each day there will be rotating habitats featuring Pokemon themed around fire, water, grass, battle, and friendship. Habitats will rotate each hour, so that each one is featured twice. There will be a total of 75 unique Pokemon featured.
Ticket holders will also have access to the Global Challenge Arena. The Arena will feature a new task for each hour during the event. Players around the globe will have to work together to complete the challenges. Progress can be tracked in game and once a challenge is completed a bonus will be unlocked for the remainder of the hour.
