6 important tips to prepare for GO Fest 2022

In a few days, the big GO Fest 2022 will take place in Pokémon GO. So that you are well prepared for these two days of the event, we have summarized 6 important tips to consider before the event.

When does GO Fest take place? GO Fest 2022 runs on June 4-5 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm local time. However, if you want to use all of the event content, you need an event ticket, which you can purchase from the in-game store. This costs about 17 euros one time, depending on the store.

6 preparations to be made before GO Fest 2022

GO Fest 2022 is on its way and will once again bring you many more deployments and raids. So that you are well prepared for the event, we have summarized 6 useful tips below that you should use before the event begins.

1. Allows space for important items

During GO Fest, you will have the opportunity to meet many Pokémon. Melza in particular should be of great interest to most coaches. For this reason, you should have enough items with you so that he does not run away from you. So, save space in your item bag for the most important items.

In addition to the balls that you have to catch, you should also consider the following items:

  • Premium Battle Tickets
  • Remote Raid Permits
  • top tonic
  • highest potions
  • golden berries
  • silver pineapple berries
  • pineapple berries
  • smoking
Make room for these items

Raid Corridors: If you play with a ticket to GO Fest, you will receive up to 9 free raid passes on both days, which you can use on site. However, if you want to get the dazzling Milza or one of the legendary monsters, you must definitely secure one (long distance) raid card or the other.

Berry: Depending on the Pokémon, golden raspberry, silver raspberry or ordinary raspberry is also suitable for hunting. On the one hand, these items help you to better ensure that the monsters in the balls survive, and on the other hand, you get twice as many candies with berries (silver).

Freshens, doses and smokes: Also, to revive the best attackers in Pokémon GO, it’s good to have enough Top Revives and Top Potions. In the wild, you can use smoke to attract more monsters. You don’t need any other items for this event and you can sort them generously.

2. Collect Pokeballs

Of course you need piles of balls to catch on the two days of the event. The event lasts a total of 16 hours. Especially on Saturday, June 4th, you will meet many wild Pokémon during the four different habitat hours.

If you want to play full time, you must memorize at least 1000 balls. Above all, super and cool balls are especially important, so that you can catch monsters with high WP easier.

Finally, during the event, you should always update your supply of balls. However, pay attention to the global challenge. In the past, for example, there were tasks in which a certain number of gifts had to be opened.

How to get the balls: The easiest way to get the balls is to rotate the picture discs regularly at PokéStops and Gyms. You can also secure the balls by opening gifts. So it makes sense to use the days leading up to the event and look at the gifts every day. For more ways to breed balls, see our related article:

by the way: In the week of 05/30/2022 to 06/06/2022, you will also receive 20 Poké Balls, 10 Super Balls as well as 5 Pinap Berries and 3 Knursp in the event chest for 1 Poké Coin. This chest also provides you with an opportunity to collect balls.

3. Pokemon Sorting

The same goes for storing your Pokémon as it does for your Item Bag. If you want to hunt a lot of monsters during GO Fest, you must sort them thoroughly before starting the event. So you don’t have to spend your precious event time sorting out your monsters.

The best way to do this is to use the search function within the game. By entering “0 *, 1 *, 2 *”, which is a suggestion already in the app, you can sort monsters according to their strength. This will show you a Pokémon with a maximum of 2 stars.

If you want to sort and submit your pokemon during the event, you can also add the “Alter0” criterion to your search function. This will only show you the monsters you’ve received over the past day.

If you want to take full advantage of the event time, you must have at least 500 free slots in your Pokémon storage for the first few hours.

4. Technology and food inspection

It is important to check the equipment beforehand, especially for trainers who will be out all day. In addition to a fully charged smartphone, you should definitely have an additional power bank and charging cable with you. Do not forget to properly charge your power bank beforehand, so that the battery does not run out on the way.

At the GO Fest weekend it should also be warm in many parts of Germany. So take enough drinks with you and think about something to eat. Then you don’t have to organize anything along the way.

5. Road plan

In order to be able to catch as many Pokemon as possible, it is better to move. Then the smoke is more effective directly. In order not to wander aimlessly, you should think about the route in advance.

Note that you will also pass enough PokéStops and Gyms along the way so that you can rotate new items. But these points are also important to be able to participate in raids or encounter additional Pokemon.

In addition, it is better to choose a place that you already know. So don’t waste any time on the site to get directions first.

6. Raid appointments

There will be some interesting raid bosses again on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to the legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon, which can be found in the Level 5 raids on Saturday, and Milza, which you can encounter in the Level 1 raids on both days, there will be another raid on Sunday.

It is not yet officially known what that will be. However, in the latest GO Fest trailer, Niantic showcases the Ultra Beast Anego, a completely new type of monster. So it is possible that you will be able to meet this sample for the first time on Sunday.

Above all, it’s hard to do raids against Legendary Pokemon on your own, which is why you should arrange to meet up with friends in advance. So it is best to think about the raids you want to do together in advance. Alternatively, you can invite other players with the help of long-range raids or take part in raids in other parts of the world yourself.

In order to defeat the Pokemon as quickly as possible, it is also recommended to rely on the best counters in each case. So check in advance which of the monsters you have and, if necessary, shrink them or change the corresponding attack. So you can start your raids for GO Fest without a long preparation.
