Three cities have been announced as hosts for Pokémon Go Fest 2024, with one in Asia, one in the U.S., and one in Europe. Each venue has its own weekend of focus before the final worldwide event brings Pokémon Go Fest 2024 to a close.

The event kicks off in Sendai, Japan on May 30, a location dubbed “The Greenest City” in Japan, before switching to Madrid, Spain on June 14 for the second weekend where players can explore Spain’s capital city.

The penultimate weekend of Pokémon Go Fest 2024 takes place in New York City beginning on July 5, where I sincerely hope the city becomes known as “The Big Flapple,” before concluding with the worldwide event on the weekend of July 13.

You can see all the dates and locations below:

  • Sendai, Japan: May 30 to July 2
  • Madrid, Spain: June 14 to 16
  • New York City, USA: July 5 to 7
  • Worldwide: July 13 to 14

The highlight of Pokémon Go Fest 2024’s in-person events will be the appearance of Marshadow, which can also be earned by those who purchase a ticket for the worldwide event via Special Research.

Special Pokémon will appear across all events, including Pikachu and Eevee wearing a sun or moon crown, Lapras wearing a scarf, different forms of Cherrim, and various Oricorio styles, all of which can be Shiny.
