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.

What are the rings in Pokemon go?

The ring's color indicates the difficulty level of capturing the Pokémon. A green ring indicates the capture is low difficulty, orange indicates intermediate difficulty, and red indicates extreme difficulty. You have the greatest chance of capturing the Pokémon while the colored ring is at its smallest diameter. helpshift.comSupport

Pokemon GO Fest 2021 has a special research quest that allows players to recruit Meloetta. The quest also has two variants of Pikachu to choose from: a rock star and a pop star. The annual celebration is live now, ending July 18, 2021 in the evening. Every Legendary Pokemon in Pokémon GO so far will appear in five-star raids on July 18.

This year’s featured mythical Pokemon is Meloetta. As this is a branching quest, the choices players make will affect their rewards. Players will have to complete a questline titled The Melody Pokemon to obtain their Meloetta during Pokemon GO Fest 2021. Several branches involve players picking between Zigzagoon or Ponyta, Flygon or Gardevoir, and Pop Star Pikachu or Rock Star Pikachu. To unlock this quest, players must log in during the event and purchase a Pokemon GO Fest 2021 ticket. After doing these two steps, players can complete the special research quest at their leisure because it does not have a deadline.

For the game’s 5th anniversary, Niantic is holding Pokemon GO Fest 2021 worldwide at a discounted price. Although some goodies are free, most are paywalled behind a ticket price of $5 (plus tax). The free content includes a special costumed Pikachu, raids, field research tasks, reduced hatch distance for eggs in incubators, and on-map background music composed by Junichi Masuda. Access to The Melody Pokemon quest requires a ticket.

Pokemon GO Fest 2021 is now live, ending the evening of July 18, 2021. The game is free to download on Android and iOS devices. Niantic released another themed Pikachu one month ago with an Okinawan inspiration.

Pokemon Go Fest Day 2: Everything You Need to Know

ComicBook.com 19 July, 2021 - 10:02am

Pokemon Go wraps up its Pokemon Go Fest event, with a day full of Legendary Pokemon raids for all players. After a full day of planning a musical concert and encountering the Mythical Pokemon Meloetta, Pokemon Go players will now prepare to battle waves of Legendary Pokemon during the second day of Pokemon Go Fest. Unlike the first day's festivities, which were only available to players who purchased a $5 ticket, the bulk of today's festivities are free. Players who have a ticket will instead gain access to special research quests and bonuses.

Here's everything you need to know about today's events:

Pokemon Go Fest will run from 10 AM to 6 PM local time.

Like yesterday's rotating habitats, Pokemon Go Fest's raids will appear in a rotating cycle based around various elemental themes. Each theme will appear twice during the day and are based on local times.

The schedule for the Pokemon Go Fest Raid Day is as follows:

Players with a Pokemon Go Fest ticket will also gain access to a two-part Special Research quest, which comes with some big bonuses and help explain why all these Legendary Pokemon are appearing in the game. The Special Research is as follows:

Pokemon GO Fest Day 2: Habitats, Raid Rotation Schedule, Research And More

Forbes 19 July, 2021 - 10:02am

Pokemon GO Fest Day 1 is behind us, and now it’s time to fight. Day 2 is all about Raids, with every Legendary Pokemon that has ever appeared showing up to give eager trainers the chance to fill in whatever last holes they have in their Pokedexes, as well as the chance to snag a huge amount of experience in the process. There is also a lore reason for why, exactly, this is happening, which is sort of funny considering this game has never exactly been concerned with lore explanations for in-game events before. Regardless, should be fun: let’s take a look at the schedule and research.

There’s also a giant egg in Chicago, pictured above. If you’re not in Chicago, it’s not a concern.

Just like yesterday, Raid Day is formed around rotating habitats, each with different Legendary Pokemon popping up. The timing is slightly different though—because there’s no global challenge arena, habitats are based off of local time. Here’s what to expect, in order of rotation.

Wind Hour (10:00 AM- 11:00 AM + 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM): Mewtwo, Ho-Oh, Latias, Latios, Regigigas, Altered Forme Giratina, Cresselia, Virizion, Therian Forme Tornadus

Lava Hour (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM + 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM): Moltres, Entei, Regirock, Groudon, Heatran, Reshiram, Terrakion, Therian Forme Landorus, Yvetal

Thunder Hour (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM + 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM): Zapdos, Raikou, Registeel, Rayquaza, Dialga, Cobalion, Therian Forme Thundurus, Zekrom, and Xerneas

Those raids are for everyone, but Ticket Holders get some bonusesL

There’s also a special research available to everyone concerning the aforementioned lore thing: this has to do with Hoopa, the mischief Pokemon, who you can see on your loading screen.

That’s it: get out there, and happy hunting. I went hard yesterday but will have to pull it back today. I wish that Niantic would ever have events that weren’t on weekends.

Viral Video Shows Wholesome Reaction to Pokemon GO Fest Raid

GameRant 19 July, 2021 - 10:02am

Pokemon Go has hosted a special yearly event with Pokemon Go Fest since 2017. While the pandemic hit the event hard, Niantic revealed that the event would start returning to being in-person with Go Fest 2021 in a limited capacity. Even if the event was smaller than before in-person, they still offered some great moments to remember.

At the end of Day 1, a Rayquaza Raid started to give attendees the chance to catch the Sky High Pokemon for themselves. In-person, the Raid was started off with a projection of the legendary beast's egg on top of a statue, letting it shake and hatch properly. As knowledgeable players may have recognized the egg in advance and known what they were getting into, one boy at the event had no idea, and was surprised that the Raid featured it.

The youngster proceeded to yell excitedly that Rayquaza was what was inside the egg, giggling and jumping around as he prepared his Pokemon Go party for the Raid. The person recording the video, @VeronicaSaron on Twitter, says in the description that after talking to the boy, or perhaps overhearing him excitedly talk more later on, that it was his first Rayquaza. The Raid allowed him to register it to his dex, and that it "made his day."

Moments like these capture exactly what makes games like Pokemon Go important. Not only was this kid excited and happy to catch such a rare Pokemon with the help of everyone around him, but even before the egg hatches, the crowd can be heard counting down the seconds before the Raid began as well. It seems that what the mobile AR title promised to be when it was announced is very much real with this sense of unity seen at Go Fest 2021.

The Pokemon Go wasn't quite as big as these events typically become in non-pandemic years, but as long as the game can bring people together, that same sense of togetherness still lives on. At the end of the day, those kinds of bonds and friendship are exactly what Pokemon in itself is all about.

Pokemon Go is available now on both Android and iOS.

Pokemon GO Fest 2021: Raid Day Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

GameRant 18 July, 2021 - 07:51am

As Pokemon GO trainers spend the day heading out with friends to battle a long list of exciting Battle Raid bosses, there will still be a handful of tasks to keep in mind if they want to get the most value out of the event. In addition to the ticketed event Special Research, there will also be an eight part timed research chain available that makes the day's activities much more affordable for players who don't have a stockpile of Remote or Premium Raid Passes stocked up...

The eight part chain quest is actually incredibly simple and feels more like a series of rewards for players who are participating in the day's activities (like defeating Mewtwo in Battle Raids), than like a challenge. In short, players just need to "Battle in a Raid" and each completion of that task (up to eight) will reward them with a new Remote Raid Pass in addition to some Stardust, Potions, and Revives.

Battle in a Raid: x100 Stardust

Rewards: x3 Max Potion, x1 Remote Raid Pass and x3 Max Revive

Battle in a Raid: x100 Stardust

Rewards: x3 Max Potion, x1 Remote Raid Pass and x3 Max Revive

Battle in a Raid: x100 Stardust

Rewards: x3 Max Potion, x1 Remote Raid Pass and x3 Max Revive

This is definitely one of the simpler timed research chains in the game's history and it should be a great way to help players gain the resources needed to get through the Raid day activities. Keep in mind that the Battle Raid bosses will be rotating each hour today, so players should think carefully about when and how they want to use their pile of "free" Remote Raid Passes.

In the coming weeks, we should learn more about what other events will be arriving during the rest of the Season of Discovery. Be sure to check back in the near future for more Pokemon GO strategy guides, news, and updates. Until then, good luck out there, trainers!

Pokemon GO is available on Android and iOS.

Pokemon Go Adds Mysterious Rings in Sky for Day 2 of Pokemon Go Fest

ComicBook.com 18 July, 2021 - 07:03am

Pokemon Go players have spotted mysterious rings appearing in the game ahead of the second day of Pokemon Go Fest. A large golden ring with a portal in its center has appeared in Pokemon Go's in-game sky, acting as a portent of sorts for the second day of Pokemon Go Fest. The ring is tied to the Mythical Pokemon Hoopa, who has the ability to create transdimensional portals and use them to summon various Legendary Pokemon. Hoopa was also added to Pokemon Go's loading screen overnight, popping in to view the musical concert headlined by the Mythical Pokemon Meloetta. You can check out a look at the ring above.

So I decided to check my spawns and I noticed the ring in the sky on my game just now @PokemonGoApp @NianticLabs what are y’all up too #PokemonGOFest2021 #PokemonGo #hoopa pic.twitter.com/uQ0JseDBlD

Hoopa will be used as the in-game reason for today's flood of Legendary Pokemon raids, which will occur between 10 AM to 6 PM local time for all players. Every Legendary Pokemon currently available in Pokemon Go will appear in raids throughout the day, with various Pokemon cycling in and out of raids based on certain habitats. While Hoopa is the cause for today's events, Pokemon Go has already confirmed that the Mythical Pokemon will not actually appear as part of the event. Likely, Hoopa will be tied to the Ultra Unlock bonuses added to the game over the next month.

The raids will be available to all players, but Pokemon Go players who purchase a ticket to Pokemon Go Fest will also gain access to a Special Research quest that comes with 15,000 XP in rewards, as well as Timed Research that ultimately rewards a total of 8 Remote Raid Passes. Players with a Pokemon Go Fest ticket also get 10,000 extra XP per raid they complete.

Day 2 of Pokemon Go Fest will start at 10 AM local time and run through 6 PM local time. The Legendary Pokemon raids associated with today's festivities are open to all players.
