The Pokémon Company and Niantic have revealed all the details of the Pokémon GO Fest 2022, an event that they define as "a celebration of friendship and community" and that will feature the presence of the mythical Pokémon Shaymin. It will take place between Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 and promises prizes, bonuses and many activities, which we detail in the following lines.
The developer added that during the second day, players will enjoy "a certain Pokémon will be making its Pokémon GO debut in five-star raids". Those Trainers who have purchased their tickets will receive up to nine raid passes by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms, which will help them get through the challenge.
The tickets, which cost $14.99, open the doors to the event. If that wasn't enough, for the first time at a Pokémon GO Fest, on Aug. 27 there will be "a special finale event," accessible to June ticket holders.
