Pokemon Go Fest - Full Chicago Event Details
A number of special events are planned for the Chicaco-based Pokemon Go Fest, many of which featuring exclusive and envy-inducing rewards. In particular, Pokemon Go players across the globe will be able to participate with those trainers on-site in Chicago during special Challenge Windows in order to unlock special prizes. Challenges can be completed by catching specific Pokemon types, and each type will be linked to a specific perk, meaning players will have to be choosy with which Pokemon they try to capture.
To make matters even more interesting, trainers that aren't on-site in Chicago will be able to frantically catch Pokemon in order to increase the Challenge Window duration. By participating globally, players will be able to increase the possibility of triggering a special worldwide bonus event whose details have yet to be revealed. For a full look at how the system will work, check out the lengthy infographic provided below.
