In 2022, Pokémon Go Fest will return to its roots with three in-person events across the world. After the two-part global experience to take place on June 4 and 5, players from three different cities and countries will have the chance to participate in physical events.
Niantic picked Berlin, Germany, Seattle, Washington, and Sapporo, Japan as those host cities, with Berlin up first. You can already buy your tickets for the in-person event, which takes place in July; all the details are available now.
We have compiled everything you need to know about each aspect of the event below.
Pokémon Go Fest: Berlin will run from Friday, July 1, 2022 to Sunday, July 3, 2022. For general admission ticket holders, it starts at 11am local time, while early access ticket holders can begin two hours earlier, at 9am local time. The event ends at 6pm local time. Players need to be at Britzer Garten in Berlin to participate. Each ticket grants access to one day of the three.
The event page also details how to get to the event from Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), lists parking options nearby, and details general guidelines and park rules. Information on what entrance should be used for the event will be indicated on the tickets themselves, and you can choose an entrance when you buy your ticket.
General admission tickets, which grant access to Pokémon Go Fest: Berlin from 11am to 6pm local time, cost 24.99, including applicable taxes. As for the early access tickets that allow players to enter the event two hours earlier, they cost 32.13also including applicable taxes.
This year, there are two optional add-ons, Raid Lover and Critical Hatch!, which cost 10.06 each. In the last section we will explain how each of them works.
To purchase your ticket for Pokémon Go Fest: Berlin, all you need to do is enter Niantics Official Ticketing site. You will get a screen that looks like this:
You must sign in using either Facebook or Google. If you use a different method to enter your Pokémon Go app and havent linked accounts yet, you must do so before you continue the process. You dont need to connect both accounts, one will be enough.
After signing in with your preferred method, you will see a list of future events containing, at the time of writing, Pokémon Air Adventures and Pokémon Go Safari Zone: Seville. Depending on when you are reading this, they may have already left the list. Scroll until you find Pokémon Go Fest: Berlin and click anywhere in that section, from the image to the orange button.
The next page will contain a brief description of the event and a bigger orange button with Get Tickets on it. Click that button and you will be prompted to select a day (July 1, 2 or 3), then a time (9am to 6pm or 11am to 6pm), then your mobile service provider (O2, Telekom, Vodafone, or Other). Click Next after each of those to confirm, or click Back to return to the previous selection.
On the next step, you will get to choose up to four players to get tickets to. Type their username, then click the orange Add button next to the text box. You must be at least Great Friends to do this. If you only intend to buy a ticket for yourself, you can skip that. Your username will already be typed for you, and all you need to do is click the Add button.
You will then see four options of entrances: Tauernallee, Buckower Damm, Massiner Weg, and Mohriner Allee. This is where you pick the entrance you will be using when you get to Pokémon Go Fest: Berlin. You must choose one and click on it to proceed. This is also where you select if you want to include any of the two add-ons (Raid Lover and Critical Hatch!). After youve made your choices, click Next and Continue, and you should be good from there!
