The Pokémon GO Fest is back as a global and online event in 2021. Announced in April and with more details revealed last May, trainers all over the world can enjoy the event now.

Pokémon GO Fest takes place this weekend from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. local time. The ticket pass costs $4.99. Different from the in-person Pokémon GO Fest event, one ticket will let trainers participate on both days of the event, which releases a special mission with the mythic Pokémon Meloetta as the final reward.

Although some features are only available for ticket holders, all trainers can enjoy the festival with several Pokémon appearing in the game and in raids as well.

With hourly habitats, the type of Pokémon appearing in-game is different every 60 minutes. Here are the four themed habitat hours:

Raids are featuring Hitmontop, Cranidos, Deino on day one. Galarian Ponyta, Galarian Zigzagoon, and Galarian Weezing are also appearing wearing special costumes on Saturday.

On day two, the Pokémon GO Fest 2021 will focus more on raids but trainers will be able to find in the wild the same Pokémon as the previous day. For ticket holders, here are all the exclusive features:

With a split focus across multiple days, Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is working with several different aspects of gameplay and offering specific bonuses, rewards, and content depending on what time you play the game. 

For day two, which runs on July 18 from 10am to 6pm local time, every Legendary Pokémon that has ever been available in Pokémon Go will be back in the raid rotation.

Niantic is splitting it up like the habitat rotations and will use four individual raid hours—Wind, Lava, Frost, and Thunder Hours—to define which Pokémon are appearing in five-star raids.

Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is going for a split approach again, with each day of the event focusing on a different aspect of gameplay and offering specific bonuses, rewards, and content. 

This year, the event will run on July 17 and 18, from 10am to 6pm local time. The second day focuses specifically on raids and pushing players to participate in as many raid battles as possible. 

During day two, every Legendary Pokémon that has ever been available in Pokémon Go will be back in the rotation. To achieve this, Niantic will use four specific raid hours—Wind, Lava, Frost, and Thunder Hours—that will divide up which Pokémon appear in those five-star raids.

Pokemon GO Fest 2021: Strange Rings Special Research Tasks and Rewards

GameRant 18 July, 2021 - 01:41am

Before getting into the specifics of Strange Rings, it may be worth taking a moment to clarify that it is not possible to catch Hoopa in Pokemon GO at the time of writing. Indeed, while the Special Research's focus on the Mythical Pokemon suggests that it may be added to the game in the near future, that does not appear to have occurred yet. For now, players will need to be satisfied with simply hearing about Hoopa from Professor Willow by way of the Strange Rings story.

Rewards: 5,000 XP, 1 Lucky Egg, 2,000 Stardust

Rewards: 10,000 XP, 3 Silver Pinap Berries, 3,000 Stardust

As previously indicated, Strange Rings is just one of the sets of research for players to take on during the second day of GO Fest 2021, and there is Timed Research that is simply called Raid Day. That research unfolds across eight stages, all of which are comprised of one identical task: battle in a raid. The rewards for each of these stages are identical as well, and Pokemon GO fans that complete the research in its entirety will walk away with quite a lot of Stardust, Max Potions, Remote Raid Passes, and Max Revives.

Pokemon GO is available now on Android and iOS devices.
