Niantic’s annual Pokemon Go celebration, Pokemon Go Fest 2020, is only a few days away. The event takes place this weekend, on July 25 and 26, and for the first time in its history, it will be a global experience open to players around the world. Go Fest 2020 will also feature a number of new gameplay elements specific to the event, including rotating habitats, and Niantic has now shared more details on how those will work.
Virtual Habitats And Rotation Schedule
There will be five themed virtual habitats available throughout the first day of Pokemon Go Fest: fire, water, grass, battle, and friendship. These will rotate every hour during the event and bring out certain kinds of Pokemon to catch; for example, Grass types will appear more frequently when the grass habitat is active.
Although Pokemon Go Fest runs from 10 AM to 8 PM local time, habitats will rotate out at set times. You can see the full rotation schedule below:
