Trainers, a new Timed Research is available in Pokemon Go and to access it you must have a Go Fest 2023 ticket.
Pokemon Go Fest 2023 will run in different cities across the globe, and players can look forward to two gameplay areas in each town. The Go Fest 2023 will take place in London, England; Osaka, Japan; and NYC, USA. London and Osaka Go Fest will go live on August 4, 5, and 6, 2023, while the NYC will run on August 18, 19, and 20. Pokemon Go players can also enjoy a two-day Go Fest 2023 Global event on August 26, and August 27, 2023.
Niantic and Pokemon Go offer two different Timed Research storylines for those who have a Go Fest 2023 ticket. The first Timed Research, featuring Carbink can no longer be claimed, as the ticket is no longer available.
