Pokémon Go players who had the chance to participate in Pokémon Go Fest 2020, had the opportunity to encounter a variety of unique Pokémon. Many of them were rare, and several notable new species receive their shiny releases, which developer Niantic had never announced, surprising eager fans who attended the virtual event. Throughout the weekend, trainers who had purchased tickets had the chance to complete 32 Global Challenges. When trainers completed eight of these challenges, they unlocked an Ultra Unlock week, which would give players a full week of unique Pokémon to capture and a research event to complete. The first week features Dragon-types, the second being Pokémon with mysterious backgrounds, and the final available week being Unova week. Because these Ultra Unlock weeks were introduced alongside Pokémon Go Fest 2020, will trainers who did not purchase the ticket have access to these exclusive weeks?
The details are not too intricate when you read the direct Pokémon Go blog about the event. The reveal of what these Ultra Unlocks are, and the rewards available for trainers, were shown in a Pokémon Go Fest 2020 tips article. Because the details of these Ultra Unlocks were revealed in a Pokémon Go Fest-related article, many believe it means only those who purchased a $14.99 ticket will be able to access these. But that’s not the case.
While the Ultra Unlock challenges had to be completed by Go Fest 2020 attendees, the rewards and benefits of the Ultra Unlock weeks are available to every trainer. These occurred in previous years with other Pokémon Go Fest events. Every trainer in Pokémon Go will have access to these weeks, so make sure you mark your calendars. All three of the weeks were unlocked by attendees, ensuring everyone could enjoy the rewards.
