Pokémon GO Fest Chicago was held in downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA at the beautiful Grant Park on July 22nd, 2017 but the event did not go as planned as it was plagued with technical issues. Cell phone networks from Verzion, Sprint and AT&T were overloaded and did not function properly causing people at the event to be unable to play the game. The Pokémon GO Fest Live Stream was also plagued with technical issues from audio static that made people sound robotic, to video streaming issues and also video quality issues. Hopefully Niantic will learn from this mistake and order and require portable cell phone towers from all providers that are now common at major sporting events and concerts like Coachella. Junichi Masuda also attended the event.

Niantic Pokémon GO Fest Chicago Update

Today at Pokémon GO Fest in Chicago, technical issues created problems for a large number of players attending the event. From everyone at Niantic, we apologize to all of the Trainers who came out to Pokémon GO Fest today. Although we were able to solve many of the technical issues, we were not able to offer every attendee a great experience.

Niantic is taking the following steps immediately:
  • All registered attendees will soon receive an email with instructions on how to receive a full refund for the cost of their ticket. These instructions will be sent to the email addresses associated with your Pokémon GO account.
  • All registered attendees will receive $100 in PokéCoins in their Pokémon GO account.
  • Special Pokémon, Eggs, and check-in PokéStops appearing during Pokémon GO Fest have had their range increased to a two mile radius surrounding Grant Park through Monday morning, July 24. These Pokémon and Eggs will only be visible to Pokémon GO Fest attendees who validated the QR code they received when they entered Pokémon GO Fest. Attendees who were unable to validate their QR code during the event can do so through the special PokéStops through Monday morning.
  • All registered attendees will have the Legendary Pokémon, Lugia, added to their account.

We appreciate the patience of all the Trainers who joined us in Chicago this weekend. We will strive to make sure our experiences are of the highest quality going forward.

Niantic announced that from March 4th, 2017 until March 13th, 2017, Kabigon will appear more frequently than normal in Pokémon Go in the Kumamoto and Ōita Prefectures of Japan. They also warn players to be careful playing the game in those areas as there is still a lot of localized reconstruction work continuing as a result of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes.

Niantic announced via Twitter that Pokémon Go is indeed still coming out soon after reports began circulating on Saturday that the app had been shelved. The Tweet by Niantic though seems more like damage control rather than an actual announcement of the apps release date. The Pokémon Go app was announced to be released before the end of 2016.

9to5Mac reported that they had a confirmed source with knowledge of Niantic's plans that the Pokémon Go Plus app for Apple Watch had been canceled for now. On September 7th, 2016, Apple had a Special Event at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium where they announced some their new products for the upcoming year. At the event, Niantic CEO John Hanke had a segment during the presentation where he discussed the current status of Pokémon GO and he announced that Pokémon GO Plus for Apple Watch would be released by the end of 2016.
