Professor Willow’s Global Challenge!

So now we have a full line-up of the Pokemon Go Fest challenges throughout the summer period. I also want to note that this is the year where the team leaders are taking more of a driver’s seat and they are each getting their own themed tasks – Spark (Instinct) will get a candy theme in Chicago, Candela (Valor) will get an XP theme in Dortmund and Blanche (Mystic) will get a stardust theme in Yokohama.

I sadly will not be able to attend any of the Go Fests – this is the issue as someone who is unemployed without money, and sadly I don’t get paid to blog this content. However, I would like to give my feedback on these tasks. I’ve divided them into a table because I found it so difficult to read the list of things needed while looking at the announcement. Now that I’ve broken it down, it should be simpler to understand.

Go Fest Task Reward
Blanche (Yokohama) Go Fest

1 million Research tasks

2x catch Stardust
Team Instinct

15 million Research tasks

3,000 Stardust guaranteed per raid
Team Valor

Team Mystic

15 million Research tasks

1 hour Star Pieces
Unlock Bonus: All bonuses will run from Tuesday August 13th until Tuesday August 20th. If all are unlocked, Suicune will be available in raids (date TBC) and shiny Suicune will be released.

All in all, I’m excited to get the tasks done to get the rewards, as well as have potentially three ‘Chaos Days’ with each of the Legendary Beasts – with shiny forms. I’m most excited about Raikou, as it is my favourite of the Beasts. I’m indifferent to Suicune, just because of its uselessness in the current Pokemon Go meta.

This was reminiscent of last year, where we had a lot of rewards taking place for Go Fest. That was how we managed to have the Legendary Birds for ‘Chaos Days’ as well as Mewtwo outside of EX Raids (although I wish they released shiny Mewtwo then).

I think it’s a good set-up, and hopefully one year I might actually afford to go to a Go Fest. That would be nice.

Until then, I hope that everyone that goes has a brilliant time!

    I do enjoy that this setup is returning from last year. Hopefully the weather will cooperate well for me like it did during most of last year’s days.
