Pokemon Go Fest Seattle 2022: Everything You Need to Know
Tickets are available now.
Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, announced that a Pokemon Go Fest event will take place from July 22 to July 24, 2022 in Seattle, Washington.
Tickets for this event are priced at $25, and they’re now available to purchase on Niantic’s website. These tickets are being sold on a “first come, first served basis.” This means it’s possible tickets may sell out before the event. Players can only purchase a ticket for one day of the three-day event.
Each day of the Pokemon Go Fest Seattle event will be split into two timed portions. One portion will take place in Seattle Center Park, while the other will be available in downtown Seattle.. When players purchase a ticket for this event, they’ll be able to choose whether they want to experience the “Seattle Center Park” portion in the morning or in the afternoon.
Specifically, players who purchase a ticket for the morning session will be able to experience the “Seattle Center Park” portion of the event from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. local time on their selected event day, and then experience the “city” portion of the event from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time on their selected day.
Players who purchase a ticket for the afternoon session will be able to experience the “city” portion of the event from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. local time on their selected day, and then experience the “Seattle Center Park” portion of the event from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time on their selected day.
On the Pokemon Go website, Niantic detailed the features that will be available for ticket holders during the Seattle Center Park portion of the event:
