The Pokemon Go team has announced more real-world events and global rewards that are coming soon to its hit mobile game.
Pokemon Go Fest, which takes place on July 22 in Chicago, IL, will feature three Challenge Windows, during which players in Grant Park will work with each other unlock global rewards. According to a post on the game’s official site, by catching certain types of Pokemon during these Challenge Windows, players will unlock different perks for players around the world. For example, catching an Electric-type will provide an Egg distance bonus, while catching a Grass-type will provide a Stardust bonus.
Those who aren’t able to attend the event, meanwhile, will be able to try and catch as many Pokemon as they can during the Challenge Windows to increase the length of the bonuses unlocked by those at the event in Grant Park. If enough creatures are caught, a mystery challenge will open up in Grant Park that will unlock a global bonus once it has been completed.
The Pokemon Go team also announced that several Safari Zone events will be held at select Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers in Europe this August and September. The events will feature Raid Bosses for players to take on, as well as Pokemon from the Kanto and Johto regions, including ones that have never been available in Europe before. See the schedule below:
- Fisketorvet—Copenhagen, Denmark
- Centrum Cerny Most—Prague, Czech Republic
- Mall of Scandinavia—Stockholm, Sweden
- Stadshart Amstelveen—Amstelveen, The Netherlands
- CentrO—Oberhausen, Germany
- Les Quatre Temps—Paris, France
- La Maquinista—Barcelona, Spain
Additionally, a special Pokemon Go experience will be held in Yokohama, Japan during The Pokemon Company’s annual Pikachu Outbreak event, which takes place from August 9-15. Details about the event will be revealed at some point in the near future.
