Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Ultra Beasts


The Ultra Beast Nihilego was recently released in Pokémon GO, and the GO Fest in-person events are introducing three new Ultra Beasts to the game. Pheromosa in Berlin, Buzzwole in Seattle and Xuriktree in Sapporo will be encounterable upon completing the Special Research for the corresponding event. These will later be released to the rest of the world, but being at one of the events means early access to these Pokémon.

Also being introduced to the game are Beast Balls, which are a special type of ball used in the Pokémon world to help catch an Ultra Beast. These will presumably have a similar function in Pokémon GO, but Niantic are yet to announce how these will be found or used.

The following bonuses will be live during the event hours listed above for players attending in-person:

– ½ hatch distance for eggs placed into incubators during the event
– Surprise snapshot appearances

These bonuses are also available to players attending in-person during the park experience for Seattle and Sapporo, and all day for Berlin:
