What habitat is particularly noteworthy? It is difficult to answer this question this year. Above all, many possible shiny objects are waiting for you in each habitat. Truly rare and powerful monsters can be found everywhere here in vain. So, first of all, find out which shiny items you’re still missing, and then take a special gamble in these home hours.
If you don’t have a ticket but still want to catch regional Pokemon, you should first take advantage of the “Quartz Terrarium” and “Aquamarine Coast” habitats. There is a Western Scaraborn or Schallew here, which is not usually found in Germany.
Pokémon GO Fest 2023: All New Monsters and Shines – What Should You Pay Special Attention to?
There are these new Pokemon: The highlight of the new Pokemon is the version of Diancie. This monster also appears as a Mega Pokémon and is only available through a special search for ticket holders.
And it continues with Rock and Ice Pokémon Rocara, which will celebrate its debut in Pokémon GO. You will find him in raids. It is available to all trainers.
Recently, Mega Rayquaza also made its debut in Pokémon GO. Pokemon quickly becomes the best monster in the game and should not be missed under any circumstances. You’ll find him in Mega Raids all weekend, of course. We also have a complete counter guide for Mega Rayquaza in Pokémon GO.
These new Shinys are available: There will be a total of 5 new Shinys at GO Fest. Shiny hues of Wattzapf, Viscora, Unown M, and 2 Schalellos hues are introduced. You can find all these monsters mainly in the wild or through smoke in their habitats.
Which Pokemon should you catch? When it comes to Pokemon in the wild, you should especially keep an eye out for the new Shinys. Shellless, Wattzapf, and Viscora can be fairly easy to find. In general, you should also collect regional and Unown Pokémon. They can mainly be found at such events and you should not miss this opportunity.
Other than that, you should take your time and do a few raids on Mega Rayquaza to collect enough monster mega energy. It will be the best Pokemon in the game and there is no harm in investing in some Raid Passes. Even regardless of his Mega form, Rayquaza is extremely useful – so the raid passes are worth it.
Pokémon GO Fest 2023: Major rewards – what to take advantage of?
You should take advantage of these bonuses: The biggest reward in GO Fest is the Shiny chance increase. Almost every Pokemon you can find during the two days can also be Shiny as its chance increases. This is what you should take advantage of. If you play a lot and effectively, you can easily get 50 Shining Points both days.
Other than that, Niantic has removed the daily remote raid limit. So, even if you’re taking a break at home or you don’t have enough arenas in your area, you can still launch powerful raids. But caution is advised here. Trainers suspect a bad Niantic scam is behind it: Pokémon GO raises an important limit for GO Fest – fans suspect there’s a bad plan behind it
Pokémon GO Fest 2023: 5 top tips for the big event
Use these tips: First of all, you should be clear about what exactly you want to focus on. If you want to do more raids, of course you have to play effectively. But then you shouldn’t count on many shiny things from the wild.
If you’re focused on raids, it’s helpful to plan a route from arena to arena in advance. It’s even worth it if you drive that far, because you’re much faster that way.
If you are on foot and focus more on catching Pokemon, be sure to use this Pokémon GO trick to catch monsters faster. Plot a route through your city here too, where you’ll find an especially large number of PokéStops, monsters, and arenas. This way, you’ll still get enough balls to catch and get the most out of the round.
Otherwise, you should have lit the smoke permanently. Really strong Pokemon spawn here, especially for ticket holders. So without the smoke you’ll miss some monsters completely and there won’t be any shine.
A certain amount of preparation would also be nice. The more balls you have collected previously, the more monsters you can capture during the GO Festival. We recommend that you have at least 400 Poké Balls in your inventory.
