Pokemon Go Fest 2021 to feature a musical concert
Pokemon Go Fest 2021 is taking place this year on July 17 and 18. It will be a big one this year as it's going to be a music festival where trainers have to put up a concert. It's also the 25th anniversary of Pokemon and the 5th anniversary of Pokemon Go.
Tickets for the two-day fest have been reduced to $5 from $14.99 this year. There are several events though that trainers can participate in without a ticket. The Pokemon Go team has also partnered with Google Play as the official event sponsor. On the first day, the Pokemon Go Fest will have four themed habitat hours - Jungle, Desert Mountain, Ocean Beach, and Cave. Pokemon such as Scyther, Aipom, Skarmory, Shieldon, Dratini, and Deino will be around. It will also feature Pokemon related to music such as Chimecho, Kricketot, Audino, and a special costumed Pikachu. There's also a free event shirt avatar item up for grabs.
Ticket holders will have access to the music festival that they'll have to set up with Professor Willow and the team leaders. Trainers will have to pick certain Pokemon for the music festival. The Pokemon music producer Junichi Masuda has also produced new tracks for Pokemon Go Fest 2021. The Global Challenge Arena is taking place this year too, and there will be four Collection Challenges as well.
The second day of Pokemon Go Fest 2021 will focus on raids, and it will feature all Pokemon that appeared on the first day. Ticket holders can earn extra XPs by completing raid battles, and raid passes as well. There's quite a lot in store for this year's Pokemon Go Fest. Last year almost all countries in lockdown but quite a few have opened up. It's still advisable to follow all precautions if you're going out hunting for some Pokemon.
