Pokémon GO Fest 2022 is returning as a two-day global event. This time, there will also be in-person events in the US, Germany, and Japan during the summer. Here’s everything we know so far about GO Fest activities this year.

According to a press release shared by Niantic, Pokémon GO Fest will be a two-day global event taking place on June 4 and 5, which is a weekend. There will also be a bonus finale event on Saturday, August 27.

Information about which Pokémon will be featured are still unclear. Usually, Niantic waits a bit longer to start promoting the event. One monster will for sure be featured: Unown.

Apart from these three Pokémon GO festivities, Niantic will also hold again in-person events this summer. Here are the cities and dates:

  • Friday, July 1, 2022, to Sunday, July 3, 2022: Berlin, Germany
  • Friday, July 22, to Sunday, July 24, 2022: Seattle, WA, USA
  • Friday, August 5, 2022, to Sunday, August 7, 2022: Sapporo, Japan

Last time Niantic held an in-person event was nearly three years ago with Pokémon GO Fest in Dortmund, Chigado, and Yokohama. This kind of event is very lucartive for the company and is also a great experience for trainers everywhere.

Last year, the global event made over $21 million in two days. Data show that trainers caught over 1.5B Pokémon, spun over 900 million PokéStops, completed over 23 million raids, and walked over 125 million kilometers.
