The highly anticipated Pokemon Go Fest has begun in Osaka, Japan, marking the continuation of its annual tradition. Niantic, the developer behind the popular game, introduced the first-ever Pokemon Go fest in July 2017 at Chicago's Grant Park. This real-life event was a milestone for the game, and since then, Pokemon Go has remained wildly popular, especially in Japan.

Two Fantastic Locations

This year's festival takes place in Osaka, a city known for its strong Pokemon Go community. From August 4 to August 6, players from various locations have flocked to Osaka to participate in this thrilling event. The festival promises exciting activities, including battling, collecting rare Pokemon, and exploring the city's vibrant streets while gaming.

Osaka offers an excellent setting for Pokemon Go Fest 2023, with two primary locations: the Expo '70 Commemorative Park and throughout Suita City and Osaka City. The city's urban landscape provides a perfect backdrop for trainers seeking adventure.

Tickets on Sale

To join in the fun, participants must purchase a one-day ticket for å3,500, which includes applicable taxes. The ticket grants access to the designated date, time, and location for the gameplay.
