Pokémon Festa & Pokémon Go Week in South Korea

*This article was based on roughly translated work, as there is no English announcement for Pokémon Festa and Pokémon Go Week in South Korea (yet). Do not take these details as law until there is more information! This serves only as a rough outline of the event as we know it now.

Here is the link to the official Pokémon Festa announcement from Pokémon Korea

Pokémon Festa

This event will be held at the Starfield Hanam Store, and Coex Mall in South Korea from May 3rd – May 12th. Features of the event include a Pop-Up Store, a Pikachu Parade, and Pikachu photo ops! These events will be live as follows:

  • Pop-Up Store (Every Day)

    • Starfield Ha-Nam: 10am – 10pm
    • Starfield Coex: 10:30am – 10pm
  • Pikachu Parade

    • Starfield Ha-Nam: May 5th, 2019
    • Starfield Coex: May 4th, 2019
  • Pikachu Photo

    • Starfield Ha-Nam: May 12th, 2019
    • Starfield Coex: May 11th, 2019
  • Detective Pikachu Photo Ops

    • Starfield Ha-Nam: May 5th, 2019
    • Starfield Coex: May 4th, 2019
  • Main Series Bonuses

    • Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee and Pikachu are mentioned in the announcement, though as of right now (with our rough translations) whether or not the ‘prizes’ will be winning the games, or winning in-game our real-world prizes for completing ‘missions’. Korea has also had many in-game distributions in the past, so it is not too much of a stretch to wonder if there will be a special distribution.

Pokémon Go Week

  • Pokémon Go Bonuses

    • May 4th – May 6th: Pokémon spawn rates will be boosted all across South Korea. At the actual event areas, Starfield Ha-Nam and Coex Mall, players will be able to find the regional Pokémon Corsola, Unown spawns, and boosted Wailmer and Combee.

Final Notes

While this article will be updated with more details as soon as they come through, we are happy to see Niantic taking part in the Pokémon Festa event once again, with large events like this.
