Pokemon Go Fest 2020 will take place in July, but it will be a virtual event this year.

Niantic Labs has announced the dates for Pokemon Go Fest 2020, alongside news that it will be a virtual global event.

The event will take place July 25-26, and it will allow players to participate no matter where they play. Ticket holders will also be able to attend both days of the event, a first for the annual event.

“While we’ll miss the traditional congregation of Pokemon Go fans, we’re thrilled to bring a special Pokemon Go Fest experience to Trainers,” reads the announcement.

“Not only are you in for an exciting weekend of bonuses, Pokemon encounters, and Special Research, there will also be exciting ways to connect with other Trainers and experience other fun surprises throughout the entire summer.”

More news and updates on the event and the game will be announced in the coming weeks.

Last year’s event took place in Chicago, Dortmund, and Yokohama and saw over 600,000 players attend.
