  • Pokémon GO Fest 2018 And Safari Zone 2018 Announced

A second major event dubbed Pokemon GO Fest 2018 will return to Chicago, the city where a similar event went terribly wrong. According to an announcement on the popular mobile augmented reality game's website, this year's festivities will take place in Lincoln Park on July 14 and 15, and will include "a 1.8-mile walking course" that is meant to have "exclusive activities for Trainers of all ages". Niantic hinted at additional upcoming events in Asia. The developer has announced the Pokemon Go Summer Tour 2018, a series of real-world events that will be held across the globe this summer, the first of which kicks off in Germany next month.

The debut of Pokemon Go Fest a year ago at Grant Park ended up being a debacle that led to organizers paying a $1.575 million settlement to unhappy attendees.

Two storm systems to have impacts on the Valley Sunday
Sunday isn't so nice as more clouds extend across the area and even some scattered showers move in with highs in the lower 60s. If you live south of the 20/59 corridor, you are likely not going to see the rain until we get later into the day.

Single-day tickets will go on sale May 11 for $20 each. Finally, Japanese players will be able to participate in a special Safari Zone event in Yokosuka later this summer. As reported by Eurogamer, the festival will feature Pokemon GO's gameplay, physical installations, exclusive activities, and the appearance of rare Pokemon. For those who can't make it to this year's celebration, much like with last year's event, Trainers not at the gathering will still have the opportunity to "engage in a variety of activities and challenges".

In addition, the next few Community Day dates have been revealed. Pokemon Go officially announced a new Safari ZOne event in Dortmund, Germany. After settling a lawsuit that essentially resulted in all players receiving a refund for their tickets (and transportation for many), Niantic has set up a new location for Pokemon Go fans to gather. While even less is known about this event than Dortmund's event, if it's anything to go by, it should also be free to attend.
