Pokemon Go Fest 2020 has come to an end, and it seems that fans have been quite happy with the event! This year’s Go Fest was held as a digital event thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, but it seems that players were pleased with the format, regardless. Over the last few months, the developer has made a number of major changes to the game to make it easier for fans to enjoy while social distancing, and it seems that this weekend’s event was the latest success story, despite some early technical hiccups. While fans might not have been able to celebrate in person, this might make newcomers more interested in attending future events!

Some are already asking for a virtual event next year!
Hey @NianticLabs @PokemonGoApp, Global Go fest was great! But it’ll be a bummer not having something similar next summer… Would you guys consider doing another virtual go fest along with the (hopefully) regular in person Go fest that comes back next year? Sell a lot more tix!?
