Get your jazz hands ready for Pokémon GO Fest 2021 trainers – this year the event is going to be musical themed! It will be happening on July 17th and 18th.

This year’s event will also be celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary for the Pokémon franchise, and the fifth year of Pokémon GO! As a result, ticket prices are now $5 instead of $14.99!

As mentioned earlier, Pokémon GO Fest 2021 will be taking place over two days, with each one providing a unique experience. The first day focuses on catching Pokémon, whilst the second on raiding.

Also if you didn’t guess already – this year will have a musical theme! I guess that explains the Pokémon Malone music event and Katy Perry’s song Electric.

Pokémon Post Malone Music Event

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 is a music festival, and you’re the show director! Help Professor Willow and the team leaders put on an incredible concert celebration by choosing between certain Pokémon to join the festivities. Complete this Special Research for special rewards, including an encounter with a Mythical Pokémon, a shirt avatar item, and an exclusive avatar pose! After you complete the Special Research, take a snapshot for a surprise!

This event will also have you choosing between either a Rock Star or Pop Star Pikachu. This decision will determine the in-game music that plays during the event.

The legendary Pokémon music producer Junichi Masuda has even produced brand-new tracks just for Pokémon GO Fest 2021!

Pokémon GO Fest will also feature the return of unknowns. There’ll also be a Global Challenge Arena and four Collection Challenges!
