The year 2017 marked the year the first Pokémon Go Fest was held. It was held in Chicago’s Grant Park. The fest continued to be held in the next two years, 2019 being bringing a major surprise to Pokémon Go players from all around the world; the fest was planned to be held in three separate cities: Chicago, Dortmund and Yokohama. The events in Chicago and Dortmund finished, but the Pokémon go fest in Yokohama have just started on August 6th and is scheduled to continue until August 12th.
The peaks of Pokémon Go Fest Yokohama
While the real pinnacle is being there at the fest, the rest of the world that were unable to participate at the events in the three cities, regardless of whether you did not have the means to travel to these places or you live too far away from them, also has something to gain from the global challenges planned by the organisers.
- The participants of the event are challenged to complete 2 million research assignments in order to unlock 3xCatch Stardust
- Members of Team Instinct are challenged to complete 25 million research assignments all over the world in order to unlock 3,000 Stardust for each attack
- Members of Team Valor are challenged to complete 25 million research assignments all over the world to unlock 3xHatch Stardust
- Members of Team Mystic are challenged to complete 25 million research assignments all over the world to unlock 1 hour Star Pieces
Global spawns and Shinies
Pidgey, Poliwag, Horsea, Sneasel, Swinub, Wingull, Anorith, Yanma, Piplup, Snover, Drifloon and many more Pokémon are expected to be seen. Also, many Shiny Pokemon can be found if you pay attention.
There are a multitude of new special hats available until August 12th.
Even though they are basic assignments, players can enjoy these tasks even more together with all the participants at the fest.
