After a disastrous inaugural event previous year in Chicago, Niantic has announced plans to bring Pokémon GO Fest back to the city this summer July 14 and 15, this time at Lincoln Park. The studio has announced a summer tour for 2018. According to Niantic, "each event will include unique ways for players around the world to create adventures of their own and complete challenges together".

On June 30 and July 1, Niantic will hold a special Safari Zone event at Westfalenpark in Dortmund.

If you're in Germany, there's another event you can look forward to. The area will be settled with various cultural themes which will help lure in families and kids, it will also include a Japanese garden, a playground and more. "Single-day passes go on sale on May 11 for $20", reads the official blog post.

Pokemon GO is available now for Android and iOS devices. That will be followed by the second annual Pokemon Go Fest, which will take place in Chicago's Lincoln Park on July 14-15. Here, attendees are going to take an nearly two-mile trail that will have physical guideposts, rare Pokémon, and "exclusive events". While the event was supposed to mark the launch of Legendary Raids, players who attended the event ended up getting refunds for their tickets and accommodations, plus a free Lugia, and $100 in PokeCoins. Again, more details are expected to be revealed on these soon.

Last year's festival in Chicago's Grant Park went awry when technical glitches prevented many fans from logging on to the augmented reality game. "We are excited to be returning to Chicago for our United States event".
