I have really enjoyed Pokemon Go but it got to a point that my time and attention, which I consider as valuable as my investments, was better spent somewhere I can accrue value. I could only wish the thousands of Pokemon caught since the game launched were NFTs I could own and trade. However, these centralized platforms and games will never given up that control. Therefore, I have really only remained close to the game for entertainment purposes while trying to get some activity done outdoors.
There is still a vibrant community so I will still share the details for this weekend’s event for the benefit of those trainers still out there looking to complete their Pokédex! Below is the exclusive content that will be available this weekend as part of the Pokemon Go Fest Finale (straight from the announcement):
• Three short Special Research stories will be available in addition to the Special Research story available to all Trainers. Learn more here.
• For the first time in Pokémon GO, you’ll be able to encounter Shiny Unown N & Unown X—if you’re lucky!
• Spin Photo Discs at Gyms to earn up to nine total free Daily Raid Passes. These can be used only for in-person raids.
• Four unique habitats will be featured during this event. Each will feature a different set of Pokémon and will last for two hours.
• From 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time, various Ultra Beasts will appear in raids. Buzzwole, Pheromosa, and Xurkitree will be making their global debut after first appearing at our in-person events!
• Earn an extra 5,000 XP when you win an in-person Raid Battle!
• Incense activated during the event will last for two hours. In addition to the normal Pokémon that appear, some less-common Pokémon can appear while Incense is active during each rotating habitat.
• Earn 3× XP for spinning Photo Discs at PokéStops and Gyms. Combine this bonus with a Lucky Egg for an even bigger XP boost!
• 1/2 Egg Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event period.
• Starting at 10:00 a.m. local time, all Trainers who have caught Sky Forme Shaymin will be able to change it between its Land and Sky Formes! This also includes Trainers who attended one of our in-person Pokémon GO Fest events this year in Berlin, Seattle, and/or Sapporo.
Another reason I will not participate is that these events continue to be offered at a price. I recall that I did one last year and was underwhelmed with the value relative to the ticket price paid. That is what also doesn’t really bring me in. However, reviewing the list of content being provided, I can see why and how hardcore Pokemon Go players will be out catching them all!
