Trainers attending the GO Fest will have the opportunity to unlock worldwide bonus rewards by participating in timed capture challenges. These challenges last for 30 minutes and happen 3 times during the GO Fest.
GO Fest Catch Challenges
GO Fest attendees have the following three opportunities to unlock the rewards (times are in Chicago time-zone):
|Challenge window #1||11:00||11:30||22/07/2017|
|Challenge window #2||12:00||12:30||22/07/2017|
|Challenge window #3||15:00||15:30||22/07/2017|
In order to complete a challenge, it’s required to reach a GOLD Tier in one of the type catch medals. It’s not yet clear what is the exact number of Pokémon required to reach the limit.
The following worldwide rewards will be available:
Phase 1: In-game bonuses
|electric||Egg Distance Bonus|
|rock||Buddy Distance Bonus|
|normal||Encounter Rate Bonus|
Phase 2: GO Fest Mystery Challenge
From 18:00 to 19:00
Mystery Challenge will appear for GO Fest attendees if attending and worldwide players manage to obtain the Gold Tier rewards in Phase 1. We expect this to be related to Legendary Pokémon.
Phase 3: Major Global Reward
From 23/07/2017 to 24/07/2017
If GO Fest Attendees manage to complete the Mystery Challenge, a major global reward will be unlocked. It’s unclear what this mean.
