Now, from July 6th to July 15th, trainers can celebrate the 5th anniversary with an in-game event. On this occasion, the game will present new experiences for the Indian players. Pokemon GO introduces a super realistic real-time sky feature that will allow players to experience their exact surroundings based on weather and lighting conditions. Trainers can enjoy the view as well as find a limited edition flying Pikachu with five shaped balloons. The 5th anniversary will coincide with Pokémon GO Fest 2021 on July 17 and 18, and gamers in India can buy tickets for a special anniversary price of Rs 399.
Indian trainers playing Pokémon GO Fest 2021 will be able to take part in the Global Challenge Arena. This special feature will be available only to ticket holders and trainers in India will get a chance to connect with trainers across the world to complete a challenge every hour. If trainers complete a challenge, they will earn a bonus for the hour left. If trainers complete a total of 24 challenges, they’ll unlock time, space, and a mystery bonus in the weeks following Pokémon GO Fest 2021.
Niantic has also announced a partnership with Google Play as the official event sponsor for the upcoming Pokémon GO Fest 2021. Niantic and Google have partnered to offer players an exciting Pokémon Go Fest experience that includes all events and 3 months of free YouTube Premium membership, exclusive content with comedy content creators The Try Guys, Google Sponsored Gifts (a perfume, A Super Incubator and 30 Ultra Balls) and other amazing rewards.
