Pokemon Go Fest 2022 should come as a relief to Pokemon Go fans, as it is both an in-person and virtual event. The 2021 event was virtual and cheaper, but even it's reduced $4.99 price wasn't worth the price of admission, and it disappointed in comparison to the virtual 2020 event. This year's event should be better for one simple reason: it's possible to attend in person. That's great news as the world slowly emerges from the unrelenting grip of the COVID pandemic, and the in-person event will be held in three separate places: Berlin, Seattle, and Sapporo. Let's get to it, shall we?
What's going on with Pokemon Go Fest 2022?
The fest will be a two-day global event held on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and Sunday, June 5, 2022, with a bonus finale event being held on Saturday, August 27, 2022. That's all well and good, but the in-person events are what get the people going, so here are the details for Pokemon Go Fest events in the three following places:
Friday, July 1, 2022, to Sunday, July 3, 2022: Berlin, Germany.
Friday, July 22, to Sunday, July 24, 2022: Seattle, WA, USA.
Friday, August 5, 2022, to Sunday, August 7, 2022: Sapporo, Japan.
It's been almost three years since Pokemon Go Fest 2019 was in Dortmund, Chicago, and Yokohama, and now it's time for Pokemon Go Fest events to be held in-person again, which I'm sure is great news for those who have been waiting for the past three years. The global event can be celebrated by anyone virtually, so it looks like Pokemon Go fans are getting the best of both worlds when they can either join in from afar or in-person if they're close enough or can otherwise make it.
The key thing to note is that these events are sorta kinda up in the air still. COVID won't go quietly into the night, so if it rears its ugly head that could mean the cancellation of the in-person events. So, until then, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more information.
