Pokemon Go Fest Day 2: Everything You Need to Know
Pokemon Go wraps up its Pokemon Go Fest event, with a day full of Legendary Pokemon raids for all players. After a full day of planning a musical concert and encountering the Mythical Pokemon Meloetta, Pokemon Go players will now prepare to battle waves of Legendary Pokemon during the second day of Pokemon Go Fest. Unlike the first day's festivities, which were only available to players who purchased a $5 ticket, the bulk of today's festivities are free. Players who have a ticket will instead gain access to special research quests and bonuses.
