Watch the Pokemon Go Fest livestream from Chicago at Grant Park here
The Pokemon Go Fest is in full swing in Chicago at Grant Park and you can watch the festivities unfold from the comforts of home and grab three, special bundles for purchase and a free t-shirt for your Trainer.
Matter of fact, the first Challenge Window kicked off 30 minutes ago. The next one starts in another 30 minutes. Hopefully, the folks at Grant Park unlocked perks for players around the world by catching set types of Pokemon.
Those elsewhere in the world can participate in today's festivities by trying to capture as many Pokemon as possible during the set Challenge Windows. Doing so will extend the duration of the bonuses unlocked by those attending the event.
Unlocking the bonuses will also provide a chance at the first Legendary Pokemon to appear at Pokemon Go Fest. Those at the Chicago event will need to successfully defeat it for the Legendary to start appearing in Raid Battles around the world after the festivities end this weekend.
