Full details on June 2022’s Pokémon Go Fest events revealed

Posted at: 1:30pm on 27th April 2022

The details on the first of this year’s Pokémon Go Fest events have been revealed. Announced last month as a combination of in-app and real-world events taking place all throughout the summer, the first two days on the 4th and 5th June are open to players all around the world, with a third set to take place at the end of August.

Both days in June will host very different experiences, centred around catching Pokémon and battles respectively. All players can participate and take advantage of the various special spawns and bonuses, but purchasing the $15 event ticket will unlock even more. Purchasing the June Go Fest ticket will also unlock additional bonuses for August’s finale event, with a separate $11 purchase also available for just the 27th August date.

Here’s how the event stacks up across the two days announced so far:
