Another successful fan fest
It’s hard to believe it, but Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo has already come and gone. Niantic wanted to thank Trainers for coming out in full-force to enjoy the event, which is why they’ve put together a recap of the event that shares both pictures from and facts on the gathering.
When all was said and done, Trainers caught over 16,700,000 Pokémon during Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo. On top of that, Trainers collectively explored over 678,000 kilometers (421289.668 miles).
Attendees explored four real-world habitats—Athletic Park, Dreamy Mindscape, Frozen Lake, and Living Meadow—while learning about Sky Forme Shaymin via Special Research tasks. Trainers at this event were among the first to encounter Shiny Pansage and Shiny Swirlix!
Throughout the event weekend, Pikachu and friends marched through the city of Sapporo in a festive parade. Some Trainers even managed to snag a special photo with Pikachu, Vulpix, and Alolan Vulpix. Against this festive backdrop, Trainers joined Rhi in investigating the Ultra Wormholes—and the Ultra Beast Xurkitree made its Pokémon GO debut.
Remember, there’s still one more event to go this Summer. Pokémon GO Fest 2022 culminates with a global finale event on Saturday, August 27, 2022!
