Eventually, players who attended ended up getting refunds and compensation for their tickets and accommodations, in addition to a free Lugia, and $100 in PokeCoins.

Pokemon Go Fest returns to Chicago from July 14 to July 15.

"A Walk in the Park" will be held in Lincoln Park with a 1.8-mile walking course.

For the uninitiated, Pokemon GO Fest 2017 was the first instance of Niantic enacting an actual festival built around the game, and the event was supposed to celebrate the one year anniversary of the title's release while marking the launch of Legendary Raids.

Single day tickets for Pokemon Go Fest will go on sale on May 11th and will cost $20.

Pokemon Go developer Niantic is hosting a number of real-world events for the game very soon. Finally, Japanese players will be able to participate in a special Safari Zone event in Yokosuka later this summer.

The new festival will be a two-day event at Chicago's Lincoln Park.

"After getting off to a bumpy start in Chicago a year ago, we hosted a number of record-setting events in Japan, Korea, and cities across Europe with attendance that ranged from tens of thousands to more than two million", Niantic head John Hanke said. There will also be "a unique and immersive gameplay experience not seen in any of Niantic's previous live events".

Together with the city of Dortmund, Niantic will host an event from June 30 to July 1 in the Westfalenpark. Niantic will also continue to hold Community Days throughout the summer. The open event will include activities throughout Dortmund. Notably, Pokemon Go was not invited to attend this year's annual Pikachu Outbreak Festival in Yokohama, so this event appears to be a replacement of sorts.
