Pokémon Go Fest 2020 makeup event date confirmed

Pokémon Go Fest 2020

Niantic is holding a makeup event due to technical issues during Pokémon Go Fest 2020.

The makeup day is set for August 16, 2020. It runs from 11 AM until 2 PM local time. During the makeup event, some Pokémon featured during Pokémon Go Fest 2020 will be appearing more frequently in the wild.

“Incense will be more effective at attracting the featured Pokémon,” Niantic says, noting that incense lasts for an hour during the event. “And certain featured Pokémon will appear only when attracted by Incense, so be sure to use Incense to encounter all sorts of Pokémon.”

Each of the different habitats will last for an hour. The times for each habitat are below:

  • 11:00 AM: Fire
