The yearly Go Fest event features raids at certain real-world locations. Those event-exclusive Pokemon are eventually released globally/worldwide so that everyone can have a chance to battle and catch them. This year, the featured Pokemon is Necrozma.

I recently watched Mystic7's video where he caught Necrozma at the Go Fest which got me wondering: when are the Necrozma raids being released globally? Or did I already miss it?

According to official news:

In-person raids were available at Go Fest 2024 in Sendai City, Madrid, and New York City, in early May.

Globally available raids will start on July 13th/14th with Pokemon Go Fest Day 2: Global.

  • Next month, right?

  • Yes, about 28 days from today (as they use local time for players, so timezones matter).
