This year, Pokemon GO players around the world have experienced four separate Pokémon GO Fest events—from the global experience that kicked everything off back in June, to the unique in-person experiences hosted in Berlin, Seattle, and Sapporo. But the fun isn’t over yet! Niantic has shared more information on the fifth and final event—the Pokémon GO Fest Finale!
On Saturday, August 27th, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. your local time, players around the world are invited to join this special global event. Tickets for the Pokémon GO Fest Finale event are available now for US$10.99* in the in-game shop and include access to special event gameplay on Saturday, August 27th, 2022. Please note that if you purchased a Pokémon GO Fest ticket for the main event on June 4th and 5th, 2022, you already have a ticket to this event, which means no further purchase necessary!
Pokémon GO Fest is best experienced alongside friends and family. To encourage groups to play together, we’re excited to announce a special discounted gifting option for ticket holders. All Trainers who purchase a standalone ticket for the finale event—or those who purchased a ticket for the global Pokémon GO Fest event in June—will be able to gift up to three tickets for the finale event for the reduced price of US$4.99 each.
