Niantic will held its first ever world event for Pokemon GO in Chicago next month and by the looks of it, they could be possibly talking about the event that we could finally battle out with Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo.
The event is called Pokemon GO Fest which was announced last Thursday, alongside an in-game promotion for all 65 million users that starts June 13. In addition to this event, they also talked about a new "collaborative" features that will be added in the coming weeks, which also means that we could be finally seeing trading in the game,
Here are some key details about the event:
1. An in-game "Solstice" event will take place on June 13. More fire and ice-type Pokémon will spawn during the event, and there will be additional XP bonuses for throwing Poké Balls and discounted Lucky Eggs.
2. Following the Solstice event, Niantic Labs says it will release an update "focused on collaborative group gameplay," which could mean that trainer-to-trainer Pokémon trading will finally be added. The update could also pave the way for Legendaries, since multiple trainers will likely need to use their strongest Pokémon that normally sit in gyms to take down Legendaries together.
3. The first-ever "Pokémon Go Fest" is happening in Chicago's Grant Park on Saturday, July 22. Tickets and more information for the event will be made available online starting Monday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m. PST. Niantic has previously teased that Legendaries will be released during real-world events where lots of players are gathered, and Grant Park is capable of holding more than 10,000 people.
4. Chicago won't be home to the only Pokémon Go event this year. Niantic says it will host real-world celebrations in shopping centers across Europe starting this month and a special "Pikachu Outbreak" event in Yokohama, Japan in August.
