Pokémon Go Fest: confirmed the dates of the 2021 edition

Pokémon Go Fest: confirmed the dates of the 2021 edition

The Pokémon Go Fest 2021 will be held in July on the days 17 and 18. The event, similar to last year, will take place entirely digitally.

The annual event inherent in the world Pokémon Go, known by the name of Pokémon Go Fest, is preparing to return again in this pandemic year. Precisely because of the latter, last 2020 forced the event to take place online in order not to worsen the global health situation which, unfortunately, will cause the 2021 show to be repeated in digital format for a second year in a row. The same developer Niantic however, he wanted to describe the event as “global” precisely in reference to streaming that will give everyone the opportunity to be “present”.

The Pokémon Go Fest this summer will take place from 17 to 18 July, and the development house particularly wanted to emphasize the 2021 event through a small communication:

2021 marks both Pokémon’s 25th anniversary and Pokémon Go’s fifth anniversary, so trust us when we say you won’t want to miss out on Pokémon Go Fest 2021!

After the success achieved last year, it is legitimate that Niantic wants to continue to pursue this format, especially in consideration of the fact that 25 years since the Pokémon anniversary. Below is the message left by the same company on the occasion of the future event:


Mark this date on your calendar: the Pokémon GO Fest, the two-day global event, will be held from 17 to 18 July 2021!

Last year saw the debut of a new format worldwide, which allowed Trainers from around the world to work together to complete challenges, unlock rewards and defeat Team GO Rocket. From the launch of the global challenge arena to the exciting quest that led us to Victini, the Pokémon GO Fest 2020 was a truly memorable event. What does this year’s event have in store for us? Well, wait and see. In 2021 there are two anniversaries: the twenty-fifth of Pokémon and the fifth of Pokémon GO, so trust us, don’t miss the Pokémon GO Fest 2021! We can’t wait to celebrate another summer with you. Stay tuned for more details.
