The annual “Pokemon Go Fest 2021” will return this summer, originally scheduled to take place July 17-18. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s event was held online rather than in person in certain cities around the world. It looks like this year’s festival will happen again. Developer Niantic describes the Pokemon Go Fest 2021 event as a “global event.”
Niantic didn’t share much in a blog post, though it did ridicule that this year’s event may be particularly noteworthy. 2021 is the 5th-anniversary of Pokemon Go and the 25th anniversary of Pokemon. So don’t miss the event of this year.
Time to mark your calendars, Trainers! 🗓️

Pokemon Go Fest 2021 event detail
Here is all we know about the event:
- Event Date: July 17 to July 18, 2021.
- This is a remote event, all players can access it on their mobile phones by purchasing tickets.
- There will be no physical location, which means we are looking for something similar to last year’s “Pokemon Go Fest 2020”.
- Global Challenges will reappear and the GO Rocket team will participate.
For those of you unfamiliar with Pokemon Go Fest 2021, here’s what we’re waiting to see the confirmation (or really, leaked):
Last year was the cycle of the first day of the thematic period, and the second day focused on the GO Rockets. Earlier this year, Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto repeated the first day of the game. Will it return for GO Fest 2021?
What’s the new Pokémon
Last year, we landed on Victini and skipped two Sinnoh Mythicals. I bet we’ll either get back in the game this year or take a double hit from Shaymin or Phione and Manaphy. This was announced prior to the launch of GO Fest 2020 last year, so I hope we can report it soon.
Shiny New Version
We actually discovered it when Go Fest launched last year, so pay close attention to Bleeding Cool, because we’ll have a lot of coverage ahead of Pokemon Go Fest 2021 launch.
After Carnival 2020, Niantic said last year’s online Pokemon Go Fest was a great success, includes a great number of trainers in 124 countries and regions. They caught more than 1 billion Pokemon. Niantic also said that each player walked an average of 15 kilometers.
