With the launch of Season of Discovery, Niantic is kicking their flagship mobile game into Summer overdrive. There’s a ton of events coming in June. Players can expect the same type of events for the most case. There’s a spotlight series of events on various days. During each Spotlight Hour, CP-boosted spawns of the chosen Pokémon will be seen across the game. Other events include special Research Breakthroughs throughout the month. Players can complete these to earn special item packs and encounters as rewards.
Next month, the fifth anniversary will be kicking off for Niantic’s game. During that month, the 2021 iteration of Pokémon Go Fest will kick off for fans. Pokémon Go Fest obviously won’t be an in-person event in 2021, thanks to COVID-19, but that hasn’t stopped Niantic from putting on the show anyway. Now running as a digital in-game event, Pokémon Go Fest 2021 will be run over a course of days, with players buying in to take part in raids and other events.
In the lead-up to that event, players will have plenty of opportunities to catch some new entries to the roster.
