What does Pokemon Go Fest give you?
Pokémon Go Fest 2021 celebrates the fifth anniversary of Pokémon Go and is themed around music. If you purchase a ticket, you'll be able to add a new mythical Pokémon to your Pokédex and have the opportunity to catch either Pikachu Rock Star or Pikachu Pop Star. Eurogamer.netPokémon Go Fest 2021 start time, ticket price and Go Fest 2021 activities explained
Shiny Pokémon aren’t something exclusive to Pokémon Go Fest 2021, but Niantic has made sure that the event isn’t lacking in new variants for players to try and catch.
Not only are there 10 new Shiny Pokémon available during the event, which runs from July 17 and 18 from 10am to 6pm local time, but for ticketed players, their base Shiny encounter rates have been boosted. This applies to all Shiny Pokémon, too, not just the new ones being added for Go Fest.
Some new Pokémon, like Pop Star Pikachu and Rock Star Pikachu or Meloetta, won’t be available as shinies yet, but you can still try and collect some of the other, readily available ones. The boosted odds don’t guarantee players will encounter a shiny during their Go Fest experience, but it gives them a higher chance to do so.
If you plan on participating in Go Fest 2021, here are all of the Pokémon that have boosted spawn rates for Pokémon Go Fest 2021 and are also available as a shiny, and how to get them.

Pokémon Go’s annual event, Pokémon Go Fest, has gone live for 2021. The first part of the world is starting their journey and will likely be posting about the rare and elusive Pokémon that they’re capturing on social media, giving players a small glimpse of what to expect when the event rolls around their local area.
Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is a two-day event from July 17 to 18 that will be happening from 10 AM to 6 PM in your local time zone. This is a ticketed event, so if any players wish to participate in the event, they will have to buy one to participate in it. The big draw for Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is the daily activities. The first day is all about capturing Pokémon in rotating habitats that appear every hour. The second day will have players working together to complete five-star raids to capture a variety of legendary Pokémon. There’s also the opportunity for players to catch a mythical Pokémon, Meloette, by completing an exclusive Special Research quest.
A big surprise that will be happening on the second day of Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is the appearance of Hoopa, the mythical Mischief Pokémon. Unlike Moletta, the mythical Pokémon appearing for the event, Hoopa was not teased at all and turned out to be why all of the legendary Pokémon are showing up on the same day.
While Hoopa is making an appearance, Niantic had to go out their way to make sure players understood that Hoopa would not be available for players to capture. This is likely happening at a later date, during a special event exclusively centered around Hoopa.
Players are likely not too disappointed about being spoiled about it, especially if they can’t capture Hoopa. However, the biggest concern for most is seeing what they can learn from people who are participating in Pokémon Go Fest before them and learning about the spawns and rewards they’re going to receive.
We have all of the Pokémon habitats listed out, the raid day rotations that are happening, and the exclusive Special Research project you need to complete to capture Meloetta. The big event will only be available from July 17 to 18, so players need to act fast if they want to obtain all of the rewards and benefits for having participated in it.

The Pokémon Company has been going big with its 25th anniversary celebrations, and not just with upcoming game releases. A high profile project has been its year-long music collaborations, which are all gearing up to a 'P25 Music' album release this Autumn / Fall. Before now it's included tracks like Electric by Katy Perry.
The latest track to be unveiled is performed by BRIT award winner Mabel; you can watch it above. Called 'Take It Home', it's a relatively breezy track that drops a Jigglypuff and Pikachu into the music video; it's another slick effort.
Mabel was quoted as being very enthusiastic about the whole thing in the press release.
I’ve been a fan of Pokémon for years, so I jumped at the opportunity to join the P25 program. I had so much fun working with Pikachu and my all-time favourite Pokémon, Jigglypuff, for the ‘Take It Home’ video. I hope the fans love the song as much as I loved working on it to celebrate 25 years of Pokémon!
The Pokémon Company, along with Universal Music Group, is continuing to build up an impressive roster of music stars for this album.
Let us know what you think of Take It Home in the comments!

Every time I see these huge uninspired marketing things by the pokemon company I get depressed. I just want a game that isn't awful.
Father Ted "My lovely horse" reference, but isn't she supposed to love jigglypuff, not be in love with jigglypuff?
@noobish_hat "Who the hell is mabel"
This music video was solid, and a fun enough song if you like that kind of pop music. But man, this is the 3rd one that's just the singer kinda doing their own thing with a bit of Pokemon interaction.
I'm just itching for more along the lines of that Bump of Chicken animated music video some months back.
there are no words for how bad this is. The good thing about the video game industry is the extent to which it has not yet spiralled into total junk garbage like the music and film industries have. Pokemon company , or whoever is behind this mind numbing trash, doing a good job at brining things down though. It is like it is intentionally trying to moronize the audience. Heck, maybe that works for long term addiction and consumption strategies...
@nessisonett Oh really? I ***** love Neneh and Eagle-eye Cherry. Woman and Save Tonight are two of my favourite songs of the 90s.
No interest for these pop songs that keep being pushed out this year. I just want gamefreak to reveal more information on the two games coming out soon.”.
This song and video are both Trubbish.
A Gastly rendition that was so Slow,bro, it made me Drowzee.
Now, maybe I'm being a little Krabby, but I can't Bayleef this is the best they could Budew.
I love pop music and Mabel has some songs I really enjoy, but this isn’t it. IMO, there’s no identity here whatsoever and the lyrics are lacking as well. 😩
Subjectively, this just isn’t my cup of tea. I’m not entirely sure who the target audience is for the song.
When is there going to be an inspirational song that stars bagon? I need that music video in my life right now.
Every time I hear the name Mabel I think of the terrible pro wrestler from the 90s.

Rotating habitats is a feature that Niantic likes to use during bigger Pokémon Go events as a way to split up content into smaller sections that are easier for players to handle and potentially keeps them playing longer.
This is exactly the case for habitats in Go Fest 2021, which is using a rotation to feature different bonuses, content, and Pokémon at different times from 10am to 6pm local time on July 17.
This includes the Go Fest 2021 Collection Challenge, which has been split up into four parts, one for each of the habitats, in an effort to make it easier to complete them all.
In total, there are four different habitats that will be active at different times: Jungle, Desert Mountain, Ocean Beach, and Cave. Pokémon appearing during each hourly habitat will coincide with the overarching theme.
For the Cave habitat, which will rotate twice at 1pm and at 5pm local time, here’s how you can complete its corresponding Collection Challenge.
Total rewards: 1,000 Stardust, one Incense, and 20 Ultra Balls
