Pokemon GO Fest Makeup Event

The final Ultra Unlock event, Unova Week, will be starting soon but that's not all!

To make up for some technical issues that took place during Pokemon GO Fest 2020, a unique event is happening.

Niantic will be giving GO Fest tickets holders access to this event Sunday 16th of August.

This will give them the chance to catch GO Fest Pokemon that they may not have had the opportunity to do so and more.

The event will run from 11 am to 2 pm local time.

Here are the features and habitat rotations, courtesy of Pokemon Go Live (source):


  • Pokémon featured during the Pokémon GO Fest 2020 Fire, Water, and Friendship habitat hours will be appearing in the wild. Incense will be more effective at attracting the featured Pokémon, and certain featured Pokémon will appear only when attracted by Incense, so be sure to use Incense to encounter all sorts of Pokémon!
  • There’ll be a special free box featuring two Incense and two Remote Raid Passes. Please note that players can claim this box only if they have fewer than three Remote Raid Passes in their Item Bag.
  • Gifts opened during the event can contain Rare Candies.
  • Incense activated during the event will last for one hour.
