The first day of GO Fest 2020 will bring ticket holders access to a Special Research story that can only be accessed during DAY 1 but may be completed anytime after! You MUST open the game on Day 1 in order to load and receive the research.
Personally, one of the most exciting aspects of the 2019 GO Fest, was the different habitats we were able to travel to for different spawns.
Rather than having the geolocations locked with spawns, Niantic has found a way to offer five habitats that will rotate spawns and special features related to each habitat on an hourly basis! Allowing each habitat to be featured twice throughout the day. Sound familiar?
The 5 rotating habitats will be as follows: Grass • Battle • Friendship • Fire • Water •
SPAWNS, RAIDS, & EGGS
Niantic has promised OVER 75 different species of Pokémon to be released in the wild, raids, and special research on Day 1 of GO Fest 2020. While we won’t keep track of every. single. one. right here, we will definitely highlight the most popular of the bunch! Keep checking back as we will update as quickly as our little fingers will let us!
