Part 4: FAQs About Pokemon GO Fest 2024

1.What Time Does Pokemon GO Fest 2024 Start?

The online Global Event takes place on July 13 and 14, 2024, lasting 2 days. And if you want to participate offline in person, then you can join in GO Fest 2024 in Sendai, Japan from May 30 to June 2, 2024; in Madrid, Spain from June 14 to 16, 2024 and in NYC, USA from July 5 to 7, 2024.

2.Is It Worth Buying a Pokemon GO Fest Ticket?

Yes, the Pokemon GO Fest 2024 ticket price stays the same as before, which is $14.99. You can get an exclusive GO Fest 2024 T-shirt after buying a ticket. More importantly, you can enjoy more benefits during the event with a ticket, like the themed special 7 km egg, exclusive special research, "DAY NIGHT" Unown, more shiny Pokemon, more free Raid Passes, and so on.

3.Can You Participate in GO Fest without a Ticket?

Yes! Every Trainer can participate in this global event even if without buying a ticket. You can still get bonuses such as 1-hour Lure Module Duration, increased themed-Pokemon spawns and taking snapshots (cute Pokemon appear in your real photos). But in general, your privileges will be less than those who have a ticket.

4.What Should I Do to Prepare for Pokemon GO Fest 2024?

Suggestion 1: Prepare enough Poke Balls, including Ultra Balls and Premier Balls, so that you can avoid running out during catches. Try to use fewer Potions and Revives.

Suggestion 2: Prepare for raids during GO Fest 2024 and ensure you have raid passes. Use free raid passes first, otherwise, you may need to buy Pokemon GO Pokecoins.

Suggestion 3: Clear your eggs in incubators and begin incubating new eggs. If you want to hatch Shiny Pokemon, you can consider purchasing items.
