Pokemon GO is treating its players to an eventful summer. Trainers will get to enjoy the most legendary Pokemon GO Fest as well as a bunch of new encounters and spotlight hour bonuses.

Even though the legendary Pokemon GO Fest, 2021 is set to kick off on July 18, Trainers of Pokemon GO won't be twiddling their thumbs for the first couple of weeks of July. Niantic has a full month of encounters, rads and spotlight hours ready to go now that the game is slowly but surely rolling back the restrictions brought on by the worldwide pandemic.
