Pokemon GO is a mobile title that continues to grow on its own without much effort. Just recently, the game crossed 2.5 billion on sales via its microtransactions. And its year-to-year totals are up 40%. And that was during the down season via winter. Now that Spring and Summer are coming, things are about to get even more packed. Which is why Niantic has outlined what is coming up for the Summer.
In 2018, we had an incredible year of live events for Pokémon GO, with our return to Chicago for Pokémon GO Fest as well as 4 Safari Zones, 12 Community Days, and tons of fun events for Trainers in between. This year, you can look forward to even more events in more locations!
We kicked off 2019 with South America’s first-ever Safari Zone event in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and we’ll have another Safari Zone in Sentosa, Singapore, in just a few weeks. Next, we’re excited to reveal that Pokémon GO Fest is coming to three cities around the world!
The dates for these events are as follows:
- June 13–16: Pokémon GO Fest Chicago
- July 4–7: Pokémon GO Fest Dortmund
- 2019 Summer: Pokémon GO Fest Asia (To be announced)
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for details on how to secure tickets to this summer’s biggest Pokémon GO events. A number of Safari Zone events are coming up in the second half of 2019, so keep your eyes peeled for more!
If you can’t make it in person to any of our summer events, don’t worry! There will be plenty of ways to participate in Pokémon GO Fest no matter where you are around the world. Stay tuned for more information on this soon!
So as you can see, the game is going to have quite a busy Summer.
