Pokemon Go Fest 2023: London offer players the opportunity to catch Mythical Pokemon Diancie

Following April's announcement that Pokemon Go Fest 2023 would come to London this summer for an in-person event, Niantic has unveiled more details about what we can expect. Chief among those reveals is the Mythical Pokemon Diancie will debut in London and Osaka. The Jewel Pokemon will be obtainable by completing the event-specific Special Research.

Anyone who purchases a ticket can expect to see special Pokemon roaming about in the wild. You can find different habitats across Brockwell Park and Greater London. Depending on the day of your ticket, that plays home to numerous Pokemon, including Sigilyph. Additionally, you might encounter a Shiny Dewpider or Petilil if Lady Luck is on your side.

There are also a few bonuses on offer for those who purchase a ticket. These will activate at 9:00 am and stick around until 7:00 pm. You will benefit from them wherever you might be in Greater London, so long as you have a ticket for that day. Of course.

Anyway, I'm sure you want to know what those benefits are so you can check those out below:

  • If you pop an egg in an Incubator during the event, it will hatch in half the usual distance.
  • You can make up to six Special Trades regardless of where you are in Greater London.
  • The Stardust cost for Trades shall be reduced.
  • By spinning Photo Discs at Gyms, you can net yourself up to nine Raid Passes.
  • X2 Catch Candy

Pokemon Go Fest 2023: London is a three-day affair that will take place between August 4th and 6th. The event is split between two locations. One day will see players flock to Broadwell Park while the remainder of the time will be spent exploring Greater London.
