Pokémon GO Fest 2020: Upcoming makeup event for players who purchased a ticket

A makeup event to apologize for technical issues

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 was a blast for many, but there were some hiccups along the way. In order to make up for that, Niantic has announced another event as an apology for the issues. Check out the full details on that event below.

Due to technical issues that occurred during some of the Pokémon GO Fest 2020 habitat blocks, we’re holding a global makeup event on August 16, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time. During this makeup event, some Pokémon featured during Pokémon GO Fest 2020 will be appearing more frequently in the wild. Note that this makeup event will be available only to players who purchased a Pokémon GO Fest 2020 ticket.


Pokémon featured during the Pokémon GO Fest 2020 Fire, Water, and Friendship habitat hours will be appearing in the wild.

Incense will be more effective at attracting the featured Pokémon, and certain featured Pokémon will appear only when attracted by Incense, so be sure to use Incense to encounter all sorts of Pokémon!

There’ll be a special free box featuring two Incense and two Remote Raid Passes. Please note that players can claim this box only if they have fewer than three Remote Raid Passes in their Item Bag.

Gifts opened during the event can contain Rare Candies.

Incense activated during the event will last for one hour.

Date + Time

Sunday, August 16, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, wherever players who purchased a Pokémon GO Fest 2020 ticket are in the world. Three different habitats will be featured during this event, each lasting for one hour.

11:00 a.m.: Fire
12:00 p.m.: Water
1:00 p.m.: Friendship

Thank you for your understanding, and we appreciate your continued passion for Pokémon GO!
