Niantic has announced that they will be supporting the One Piece Kumamoto Revival Project which manga artist Eiichiro Oda is involved with. The 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes were a series of earthquakes, including a magnitude 7.0 mainshock, which severely damaged Kumamoto and Ōita prefectures in Japan. To promote the ONE PIECE Kumamoto Revival Project, there will be a few promotions in Pokémon GO.


On July 22nd, 2019, ONE PIECE will celebrate its 22nd anniversary and Pokémon GO will celebrate its 3rd anniversary since its launch in Japan. In commemoration of this collaboration, Pikachu wearing a red ribbon straw hat will appear for a limited time all over the world and a red ribbon straw hat will be available as an outfit for trainers from July 22nd, 2019 until July 29th, 2019.

The Pokémon GO Fest 2019 Dortmund took place from from July 4th, 2019 to July 7th, 2019 in Dortmund, Germany. Niantic posted a write-up of the events that took place during that event.


Summer Adventures Continue at Pokémon GO Fest 2019 Dortmund!

Trainers, We are in awe of the welcome Pokémon GO received this past weekend. Our first-ever Pokémon GO Fest in Europe was incredible. Thank you for an exciting weekend in Dortmund! More than 85,000 attendees attended over the four-day event and 200,000 Trainers played in the surrounding Dortmund area.

It was inspiring to see so many friendships come to life and adventure together, both in Dortmund and around the world. Globally, Trainers completed Team Valor Leader Candela’s portion of Professor Willow’s Global Challenge to unlock XP rewards for all Pokémon GO players.

Over the course of four days, Trainers at Westfalenpark walked nearly 400,000 kilometers and caught more than 28 million Pokémon. We want to thank all of the passionate Trainers in Dortmund and all over the globe who helped continue our summer adventures and made this Pokémon GO Fest one for the books!

Here are just a few of the highlights from this week’s activities.

Pokémon GO Fest 2019 - Dortmund Special Research Ticketed attendees had the privilege of experiencing the very special research that was first unveiled at Pokémon GO Fest Chicago 2019. Professor Willow first greeted the player upon entering the park and recruited their help to investigate the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi! Through the act of making friends, sending gifts, and returning lost Pokémon to their rightful habitats, Trainers were then able to wake up Jirachi from its slumber and catch it.

Habitats, Trades, Battles, Autographs!
Throughout Westfalenpark, there were four diverse habitats for Trainers explore: Mysterious Woods, Steel Factory, Rocky Terrain, and Boat Lake. In the Mysterious Woods, Trainers found oddly shaped bubbles floating in the air while encountering Pokémon such as Ralts and Paras. We paid homage to the industrial history of Dortmund through the Steel Factory habitat, where Pokémon like Voltorb and Skarmory appeared. Trainers showed off their skills while navigating the Rocky Terrain habitat while taking the perfect GO Snapshots of Diglett and Onix in the cave. Trainers cooled off at Boat Lake, which featured an active geyser, and provided the perfect place for Water-type Pokémon like Clamperl and Carvanha.

Trainers working towards completing their Pokédex headed over to the Trading Outpost. There, attendees used their five special trades to collect Pokémon from all over the world!

Champions were made at Dortmund’s very own Battle Ground! After many hard-fought battles, Trainers basked in their glory by taking commemorative pictures in the Champion’s Circle.

Youtube Content Creators joined the festivities for autograph sessions daily including: Trainer Tips, MYSTIC7, REVERSAL, Spieltrend, and Keibron! Attendees with tickets were able to attend daily signings where they could meet, chat with, and get an autograph.

The Group Photo was not a moment to be missed. The turnout had Candela thrilled! It was the perfect ending to an awesome day of playing Pokémon GO together.

Global Challenge
Congratulations to all Trainers who took part in the second part of the Global Challenge! Pokémon GO Fest Dortmund attendees and Trainers around the world alike worked hard throughout the four-day event and successfully completed Candela’s XP Research Challenge. Candela has been running around yelling “Let’s GO!” all weekend. She even got Professor Willow to join in on the celebrations!

She wants us to let you all know that she says,

“Trainers—your fiery passion inspires me! We can do anything if we set our minds and our hearts to it. Let’s keep up this determination and support Team Leader Blanche too!”

Look forward to the following bonuses to be active from Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at 1 p.m. until Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT:

  • 3x Catch XP
  • 2x Raid XP
  • 3x Hatch XP
  • 1 Hour Lucky Eggs

In addition to those bonuses, Entei will be available in raids on Sunday, July 14, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m local time. Players will receive up to five free Raid Passes during the event. If you’re lucky, you might encounter Shiny Entei!

Thank you, Trainers.
We couldn’t have done this without you. This was our biggest Pokémon GO Fest yet and we hope you had just as an amazing time as we did! Please look forward to the final Pokémon GO Fest in Yokohama and be prepared to tackle Blanche’s challenge. They’re depending on you!

Oh...and one more thing…
What was up with that strange balloon in the skies of Dortmund?
