Pokemon Go Fest 2020 is less than a week away, but there’s still one more set of challenges to complete before the event arrives. The third and final batch of Go Fest challenges is now live in Pokemon Go, giving players around the world one more chance to unlock additional Pokemon to catch during Go Fest weekend.
Whereas last week’s challenges revolved around defeating Team Rocket (including Jessie and James), this final batch is all about friendship. The tasks for this set involve earning hearts with your Buddy Pokemon and sending gifts to friends. If enough players on all three teams are able to complete the challenges, Niantic will make three more rare Pokemon–Togetic, Dratini, and Litwick–available to catch during Pokemon Go Fest next week.
The Pokemon Go Fest friendship challenges will be available until July 22, 10 PM local time. Coinciding with the challenges, Niantic is also holding a summer event in the game right now. For the next few days, summery Pokemon–including the debuting Petilil, a summer-style Pikachu, and Shiny Bellsprout–will be appearing more frequently in the wild and in Raid Battles.
Pokemon Go Fest 2020 takes place July 25-26. Tickets for the event are available to purchase from the in-game shop and cost $15 USD. Unlike previous Pokemon Go Fests, this year’s event will be a digital experience open to all players around the world, and there will be global challenges to complete as well as rotating virtual habitats that will cause different types of Pokemon to appear at certain times. Niantic has also teased that the Mythical Pokemon Victini will make its debut during the second day of Go Fest.
In the meantime, the Legendary Kyurem is available in five-star Raids. There’s also still time to complete July’s Field Research tasks, and the reward for each Research Breakthrough you achieve this month is an encounter with Larvitar.
