Pokemon GO Fest 2021 is the biggest-scaled annual event of the game and it appears quite confusing because of the many moving parts. These parts might also be active only for a certain period of time and can get replaced by something else. Each day of the event will focus on a different thing. While the Day 1 is all about hourly habitats, Global Arena Challenges, and costumed Pokémon; Pokemon Go Fest Day 2 will be a raid day with the feature of every available Legendary Pokemon.

Following this divide, how these PokeGo raids, spawns, as well as other bonuses, work will have a little disparity from the normal Pokemon Go event. If you are planning on joining this massive happening, here is everything you need to know, from special raids, spawns, to rewards and ticket information.

What does this year's Pokemon Go Fest offer its players?

Pokemon Go Fest 2021 raids

Go Fest 2021 will be categorized into separate portions. On Day one, players will need to catch Pokemon and complete event-made Special Research that follows the music and Mythical Pokemon. And Day two is raid-centric as previously mentioned.

1. Day one raids

The first day of Pokemon Go Fest 2021 will take place on Saturday, July 17 with these raids.

  • One-star: Galarian Zigzagoon (Shiny available), Galarian Ponyta (Shiny available), Deino (Shiny available), Shieldon
  • Three-star: Cranidos, Hitmontop, Galarian Weezing
  • Five-star: TBD
New Pokes
Trainers will see many new Pokemon and their shiny versions.

2. Day two raids

On July 18 - Day 2 of 2021 Pokemon Go Fest, Trainers have the chance to raid against all Legendary Pokemon. While ticketed players can get a maximum of 10 standard raids passes for gyms, those who get the Timed Research done can gain up to 8 remote raid passes.

Moreover, there will be a free bundle that grants you three extra remote raid passes. Every incense-drawn Pokemon on Saturday will be drawn by incense on the next day.

Pokemon Go trainers will get a bonus of 10,000 XP when having completed a raid battle. Therefore, be sure that you will use the lucky eggs for the double experience!

Pokemon Go Fest 2021 tickets

Joining this event with a paid ticket will give you an edge. The price of a 2021 Go Fest ticket is $4.99, a big reduction from the entry cost last year - $14.99.

This necessarily means that players will be granted free access to 16-hour gameplay and event-custom features for less than a movie ticket. Very reasonable it is.

The primary ticketed feature of the event is the Special Research that allows trainers to choose Rock Star or Pop Star Pikachu while also filling their band out with brand-new costume Pokemon such as Gardevoir and Flygon.
