Pokémon Go Fest is upon us! ‘what the fuck are you talking about?’ you might ask. Well, Niantic, the developers of the hugely popular mobile game, have decided to host their first ever real world festival.
Taking place in Grant Park, Chicago, the festival has promised rare Pokémon, mystery challenges, global rewards and photo opportunities. Niantic have teased the arrival of Legendary Pokémon since the games release in 2016, and this festival would be the perfect way to show them off to the world.
You don’t even have to be in Chicago to take part in Pokémon Go Fest! There will be 3 worldwide catch challenge windows, in which players across the world must work together to catch as many Pokémon as possible. If the Global Challenge is completed, this could mean the legendary Pokémon being released worldwide.
The catch windows are as follows:
- Window 1: 17:00 – 17:30 GMT
- Window 2: 19:00 – 19:30 GMT
- Window 3: 21:00 – 21:30 GMT
