Pokemon GO Fest Returning in July; New Safari Zone Event Announced
Niantic has officially revealed the first details about this year's Pokemon GO Fest, as well as two Safari Zone in Germany and Japan.
If you didn’t get to be a part of last year’s Pokemon GO Fest, or you were just disappointed by how it was handled, then you’re in luck. Today Niantic announced two brand new, real-life events for the popular mobile game, and one of them is the return of the Chicago-based event.
While the event originally took place at Grant Park last year, this year’s version will be located at Lincoln Park. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown what special offers or Pokemon will be made available to attendees, however, Niantic did say that the event will “offer a unique, immersive play experience unseen anywhere else.”
The event is set to last from July 14, 2018, to July 15, 2018. Tickets will be available for $20 starting in just a few days, on May 11, 2018. It’s unknown how many will be available.
Niantic also announced that two new Safari Events will be making their way around the world later this year, with one coming to Germany at the end of June, and one coming to Japan soon after.
Pokemon GO was originally released in 2016 and is available on iOS and Android devices.
