A Pokémon GO Fest 2021 Near You?

Pokémon GO has just announced some additional, and pretty exciting, news for GO Fest 2021! 

We’re excited to announce that real-world Pokémon GO Fest celebrations will be held in more than 20 cities this year. While we can’t all gather on the scale of previous Pokémon GO Fest events, these outdoor and socially distanced experiences will still certainly be worth attending if you’re nearby!

This news comes just over two weeks from the start of the event so it may be time to change some plans, or not?

What to Expect

If you already have a ticket and not near one of the listed cities, do not fret! The GO Fest experience will still be the same around the world. Trainers who are able to attend one of the in-person, socially distanced, events can look forward to various photo-ops while exploring the city and playing.

How do I Join

If you want to attend one of these in-person events, you MUST REGISTER by visiting the following website or go to the “Events” section of the app.

Registration is free, but spots for each city are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please attend the in-person experiences only if you have a confirmed registration. If you are unable to register, please help us keep crowd sizes at reasonable and safe levels by not traveling to participate in the in-person experiences. _Note: An in-game Pokémon GO Fest 2021 ticket will not grant admission to these real-world celebration experiences.

If you live in one of these cities but are unable to register for the event, don’t worry, you can still play GO Fest in your city.

Our Hot Take

Ok, let’s be honest here…this is exciting that we are headed in the right direction when it comes to in-person events but is it me, or does this just feel forced? 16 days away and we get the news for photo-ops?

Personally, if you live in one of these cities, planned to play in one of these cities, then go for it! Don’t change your plans based on this news. It doesn’t seem that there are any in-game benefits by registering for these in-person gatherings, nor are you going to be turned away from playing in your city. 

As always, be safe out there Trainers and please obey your local laws and guidelines! Let us know your thoughts about this news and be sure to share your GO Fest photos with us on Twitter or our Discord Server!
