The Pokémon GO Fest 2022 announcements continue. With the global remote GO Fest 2022 now just a week and a half away, Niantic has revealed details for yet another in-person event. Pokémon GO Fest: Seattle will take place in Seattle, Washington, and Seattle Center Park from Friday, July 22, 2022, to Sunday, July 24, 2022, with trainers who purchase tickets splitting their day between event experiences in the park and in the larger city of downtown Seattle. Let's get into the details.
Here's everything you need to know about Pokémon GO Fest: Seattle now that tickets are on sale:
- Tickets: On sale here.
- Shiny releases: Two! We're getting Shiny Panpour and Shiny Combee.
- Park experiences include the following:
- Special Research: Just like the other in-person GO Fest 2022 events, trainers will complete this questline to encounter Sky Forme Shaymin.
- Habitats: Cloud Sanctuary, The Oasis, Dreamy Mindscape, Electric Garden. One of these will be unique to Seattle.
- Trading Post & Battle Grounds: Niantic has announced that Trainers will be able to visit the Trading Post, a location to trade with Trainers at the event, or even challenge them to battle at a specified Battle Post for PVP fans. Trading will have a buff for the event, as Trainers will be able to make up to six Special Trades during the park event experience. It is also noted that all trades made during the park event experience will also have a reduced Stardust cost.
