The second Pokemon Go Fest will begin soon in Dortmund, Germany, but events are happening for the entire world for fans that cannot attend. Niantic is increasing the spawn rate of male Nidoran around the whole world beginning tomorrow on July 4th at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST. For the first time, you can find a shiny version of the Pokemon that was previously not released.

This is not the only change that is happening during this event. Players around the world can chip in towards the completion of Global Challenges through the entire Go Fest duration. There will be a variety of bonuses available in the game and another chance to capture the Legendary Pokemon Entei.

Shiney Alolan forms of Rattata, Sandshrew, Vulpic, Diglett, Meowth, Geodude, Grimer, and Exeggutor can be found in the wild as well as the famous Pikachu wearing a party hat. The game is adding in new special research quests and avatar items in celebration of the third anniversary of Pokemon Go.

Gen 3 Legendary Groudon will be returning to Raid Battles for a limited time. You can find him appearing at Gyms until July 10 and even have a chance at capturing a shiny version of him. In addition to raid battles, Groudon and Kyogre can be encountered through July’s new field research tasks. Speed Forme Deoxys can also be found in EX raids for players to catch.

As a reminder, Pokemon Go’s next Community day is scheduled for July 21 and will feature Mudkip, the Gen 3 Water-type starter, for players to add to their collections. Mudkips will be more frequent than normal through the entire event and will heighten the chances of evolving it into its final form Swampert by the end of the event. As per usual community day rules, players will earn triple the usual amount of XP during the day.

Pokemon Go is officially three years old, but the impact is still rippling through community and fans around the world. Events scattered across the globe shows how fans can come together no matter where they are from with their love of Pokemon. The game company, Niantic, is doing a great job keeping their game relevant. Fan numbers were reported falling during last years review, but the company still has a substantial fan base to support them.

We can expect that Pokemon Go will be around for a long time. Even with Minecraft Earth and other AR games hitting the market, it just won’t be able to stand up the same way the fan dedication shown in the Pokemon Community.
