Pokemon Go Fest Makeup Event Is Today

Go Fest ticket holders will have another chance to encounter Pokemon from July's event this Sunday, August 16.


Pokemon Go's final Ultra Unlock bonus, Unova Week, is now underway, but that's not the only event happening in the game this week. As a make-good for some technical issues that occurred during Pokemon Go Fest 2020 last month, developer Niantic is holding a special event for Go Fest ticket holders today, August 16, giving them another chance to catch Go Fest Pokemon and more.

The makeup event runs from 11 AM to 2 PM local time. Much like during the first day of Go Fest, there will be rotating virtual habitats each hour of the makeup event, which will bring out different types of Pokemon.

The habitat rotation schedule is as follows:

  • 11 AM: Fire habitat
  • 12 PM: Water habitat
  • 1 PM: Friendship habitat

On top of that, players will be able to claim a free box from Pokemon Go's in-game shop that contains two Incense and two Remote Raid Passes. Any Incense that you use during the event will also last for one hour instead of the usual 30 minutes, and certain Pokemon will only appear when Incense is active.

Finally, any gifts that you open during the makeup event can possibly contain Rare Candies. You can read more about the Pokemon Go Fest makeup event on the game's official website.

In the meantime, the aforementioned Unova Week runs until August 21. During that event, Gen 5 Pokemon such as Sewaddle, Cottonee, and Emolga will appear in the wild much more often than usual, and the Mythical Pokemon Genesect will be featured in five-star Raids. You also still have some time to complete August's Field Research.
