Pokemon Go Fest 2020 Day 1 Schedule, Dragon, Enigma and Unova Week, Shiny Pokemon and More

Trainers, this is HUGE! Niantic revealed the schedule for the first day of the Pokemon Go Fest 2020, and it’s going to have a heap load of stuff. The one to thank for this is a Pokemon Go player and video games columnist Gieson Cacho who was kind enough to share it on the official TSR Reddit.

With the event, you will be able to catch your sought-after shinies with the rotating habitats and the more important part of the event will be the traditional Ultra Unlock bonuses that are tied to the event.

With that, it is shown that even if you aren’t participating in the event you will still benefit from what happens at Pokemon Go Fest 2020.
