The Pokémon GO Fest Celebrates Several Milestones

The Pokémon GO Fest was announced by Niantic as a happening that's set to take place on July 22 as a way to celebrate two huge milestones for the company. This includes the one-year anniversary since the augmented reality app game was released as well as a global download number of 750 million.

The event will take place in Chicago and be focused on providing patrons with a number of fun, interactive ays to celebrate their love of the gaming app. The event comes as the first official real-world event that has taken place and comes at a strategic time to commemorate such impressive milestones.

The Pokémon GO Fest is also being celebrated with in-game events such as the Solstice Event that's taking place on June 13.
