Pokemon GO Fest 2024 is heading to Madrid, with thousands of fans from around the world expected to attend the in-person celebrations.

Ticketholders will spend one-half of the day in Parque Juan Carlos I, and the other half exploring the wider city of Madrid. There will be loads of gameplay features to enjoy including the Pokemon GO debut of the Legendary Necrozma and the Mythical Marshadow!

When does Pokemon GO Fest 2024 take place?

Pokemon GO Fest 2024: Madrid takes place from Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 16, 2024.

Trainers can purchase a ticket for one of these days, with morning and afternoon slots available for the Parque Juan Carlos I experience. The other half of the day can be spent enjoying gameplay across the city of Madrid.

Tickets are available to purchase now from the official Pokemon GO Fest 2024: Madrid event page. There are also a few optional bolt-ons like Raid Lover and Egg-thusiast that focus on specific types of gameplay.

One of the most exciting features of Pokemon GO Fest 2024: Madrid is the debut of the Legendary Necrozma!

This fearsome Psychic-type creature from the sunny Alola region will be available to battle in Raids. If you manage to defeat it, you'll get a chance to catch it. Ticketholders might even encounter a Shiny Necrozma.

That's not all, as Ultra Beasts including Guzzlord, Nihilego, Xurkitree, and Kartana will also appear in Raids. And, for the first time in Pokemon GO, ticketholders will have a chance to encounter Shiny Pheromosa!
