Niantic has revealed new details about the Pokemon Go’s global events and the real-world activities for the Trainers all around the world.
Pokemon Go Fest Chicago will have all sorts of activities for the trainers, including some unique ways for the players at the event and across the globe to work together to complete challenges and earn rewards. The trainers in Europe will have a chance to team up this summer across seven cities during the Pokemon Go Safari Zone events, where they have an opportunity to catch rare Pokemon, and get some special awards.
Pokemon Go Fest will happen on Saturday, July 22, in Grant Park, which is located in the center of downtown Chicago. Throughout the day, the Trainers will participate in three Challenge Window activities, where they have to work together to catch certain Pokemon to unlock many perks for Pokemon Go players all around the world.
The Trainers outside of Chicago can participate in the celebration by catching as many Pokemon as they can during the Challenge Window. If the Trainers catch enough Pokemon, there will be a mystery challenge revealed that can unlock an extra-special bonus.
In Europe, the Pokemon Go Safari Zone events will be hosted at the selected Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers in Copenhagen and Prague on August 5, Stockholm and Amsterdam on August 12, and Oberhausen, Paris, and Barcelona on September 16.
