Pokémon Go Celebrates its first Birthday with Pokémon Go Fest Around the World
The world mania, called Pokémon Go, will soon celebrates one year from its launch. The developer Niantic has revealed that is organizing a special Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago.
In addition to Pokémon Go Fest, Niantic will also hold several Safari Zone events in Europe and Asia featuring monsters previously unavailable in the region.
During Challenge Windows, people in Grant Park will have to catch monsters that will give them different privileges, such as reducing the distance needed to hatch an egg.
Here’s a breakdown in detail of what exactly Niantic is prepared for Grant Park:
Increased Pokémon Encounters
