Pokémon Go Fest: Seattle is underway, with players attending the ticketed event splitting time between Seattle Center Park and the city proper as they finish various Collection Challenges and work to encounter new Ultra Beasts. 

Specifically for this event, which runs from July 22 to 24, players can finish event-exclusive Special Research to encounter Buzzwole for the first time, while also getting some nice bonuses along the way. Go Fest: Seattle will also be the first time players can encounter a Shiny Combee and Shiny Panpour, and don’t forget about Cowboy Hat Snorlax. 

Players attending the event or playing along from home with the tie-in event will get rewards from finishing Collection Challenges, and have a shot at boosting the upcoming Hisuian Discoveries event with a Global Challenge, too. 

If you plan to participate in the event at all, here are all of the research tasks and rewards for Go Fest: Seattle.
