How does Pokemon Go Fest Work 2021?

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.

A mysterious egg installation was erected in Maggie Daley Park in Chicago this week leading many to speculate what it could be. It turns out its part of an extra special Pokemon Go Fest 2021 for the Windy City.

The egg will be part of a Legendary Night raid egg event at the park running from 9 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. According to a news release, “Attendees will see Legendary Pokémon raids take place live, with Trainers all over the world and in Maggie Daley park teaming up to catch some of the rarest Pokémon live, projected onto a 50-foot-tall Pokémon Egg.”

I have a mystery. This is for people in Chicago. An egg has appeared! Is this a part of the upcoming #PokemonGO5YearAnniversary #pokemongofest ? pic.twitter.com/010LOEk6zq

In addition, Chicago’s event will be the biggest. Niantic will have street teams doing giveaways to players around downtown. It will also have the special photo-ops in Navy Pier and Ogden Plaza. Niantic said brand ambassadors will be distributing wristbands to the first 1,000 people at Maggie Daley Park on Saturday. Attendance is limited to offer socially distance space for all participants.

As someone going to San Francisco’s Pokemon Go Fest 2021 City Activation, I’m a little bit jealous of our friends over in Chicago. Niantic will have its own photo-ops along the Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach and Union Square. Chicago gets the extra special treatment because of its relationship with Niantic, holding the past few Pokemon Go Fests in the U.S.

Mabel's Take It Home is the Next Pokemon 25 Song

TechRaptor 16 July, 2021 - 10:26am

A new track for the Pokemon 25 music album, commemorating 25 years of the classic creature-catching franchise, has just been released. The song is "Take It Home" by the British singer Mabel McVey, which released its music video this morning.

In the music video, the 25-year-old singer and BRIT award winner comes home to watch a movie featuring Pikachu and Celebi on TV until she falls asleep. When she wakes up, she follows a Jigglypuff around a fantastical building and dances on a stage while Pikachu and the Jigglypuff watch. The song features beats by superstar producers Tommy Brown and Mr. Franks, while the playful and colorful music video was directed by Sophia Ray. The music video, which was just released this morning, can be seen below:

Speaking to People, Mable said that it was "epic" to be a part of the project, and as a big Pokemon fan, she wanted to create something fun and playful. "I wanted to create these parallel worlds of reality versus fantasy because I'm a big dreamer," she said. "I had so many imaginary friends when I was a kid, and it was honestly a childhood dream to just be dancing with Pokémon." Among the other musicians who will be in the Pokemon 25 album are Post Malone with a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish's "Only Wanna Be With You," an unknown song by J. Baldwin, and Katy Perry's "Electric." No word on if Bump of Chicken's "Acacia" will be on there.

The Pokemon 25 album, which will be released by Capitol Records, has no solid release date other than beyond Fall 2021. It will feature 14 songs by 11 artists.
