The 2022 Pokemon Go Fest finale event will go some way to addressing player disappointment over bad shiny luck during the first Global Go Fest weekend, Niantic has said.
“When we created the design for the entire Go Fest experience, we wanted to keep all 3 live event days in mind.
2022’s Global Go Fest was also plagued by a bug that made Pokemon attracted to Incense appear on the map when they had already despawned, further exacerbating the problems for shiny-hunting players. “I don’t think we underestimated how interested players are in shiny Pokemon,” Michael Steranka, Director of Live Product for Pokemon Go, told VG247 at a recent Q&A event.
While it has not been officially confirmed that the Ultra Beasts will make an appearance at the Global Go Fest finale, it could fit the timeline.
