The wait is over—in-person Pokémon GO Fest events are back!
Pokémon GO Fest: Live events will be taking place in three cities over three different weekends:
- Pokémon GO Fest: Berlin: Friday, July 1, 2022, to Sunday, July 3, 2022 in Britzer Garten
- Pokémon GO Fest: Seattle: Friday, July 22, 2022, to Sunday, July 24, 2022 in Seattle Center Park
- Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo: Friday, August 5, 2022 to Sunday, August 7, 2022 in Nakajima Park
For individual event details, please see the event site. For information on how to purchase tickets to live events, please see this article.
As a new addition to our live events, we’re offering Trainers the chance to enhance their event experience with special, optional add-ons. These add-ons can only be purchased when you purchase your live event ticket and cannot be added later.
Add-Ons will be active during the entire Pokémon GO Fest: Live weekend regardless of which day for which you have purchased a ticket and are valid within the city to which you purchased your Pokémon GO Fest: Live ticket (e.g. buy a ticket to Pokémon GO Fest: Berlin and your add-on will work in the city of Berlin during the event weekend).
- Raid Lover add-on – This add-on grants up to 12 in-person Raid Passes total for each day by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms, an additional 5,000 XP after every raid you complete successfully, and six additional Candy and three additional Candy XL after catching Pokémon in five-star raids.
- Critical Hatch! add-on – Hatch Eggs in 1/4 the normal distance (this bonus does not stack with other similar bonuses), and earn double the XP, double the Candy, and double the Stardust for hatching Eggs.
Trainers attending Pokémon GO Fest: Live events in Seattle and Sapporo will be required to select from two gameplay sessions to guide their gameplay throughout the day. All attendees will receive two separate Special Research stories, one during Park Gameplay and one during Citywide Gameplay, to help guide their event experience.
With a Morning Session ticket, Trainers will start their day off in either Seattle Center Park (Seattle) or Nakajima Park (Sapporo) and explore all the park has to offer. From 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. there will be an intermission without gameplay, to allow transit from the park to your preferred play location within the city.
Then, in the afternoon, Trainers will begin the Citywide Gameplay portion of their experience! During the Citywide portion of your experience you can enjoy event gameplay no matter where you are located within the city.
Note that Morning Session start times vary by location:
- Seattle: 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. local time
- Sapporo: 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. local time
With an Afternoon Session ticket, Trainers will begin their day by enjoying event gameplay anywhere in Seattle or Sapporo. From 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. there will be an intermission without gameplay, to allow transit from your preferred play location within the city to the park. Then, starting at 2:30 p.m., Trainers will enjoy the Park Gameplay portion of their experience, enjoying all that Seattle Center Park (Seattle) or Nakajima Park (Sapporo) has to offer.
Note that Afternoon Session end times vary by location:
- Seattle: 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time
- Sapporo: 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time
