Pokemon Go July 2024 Events: Raids, Spotlight Hours, Community Day, And More

July is officially here, and that means a variety of new events to look forward to in Pokemon Go. After a handful of in-person Go Fest gatherings over the past several weeks, the global Pokemon Go Fest 2024 celebration is slated to take place in mid-July, with a few special Ultra Unlock events following later in the month.

That’s not all that’s happening, however. A number of Ultra Beasts and Mega Pokemon will return to raids throughout July, while the electric Pokemon Tynamo will star in this month’s Community Day event.

Ahead of the global Pokemon Go Fest 2024 celebration, a number of Ultra Beasts are invading raids once again as part of the Inbound from Ultra Space event. Beginning July 8, a different Ultra Beast will appear as a five-star raid boss every few days, giving you another chance to catch these elusive Pokemon.

On top of that, Pokemon Go will offer a number of special Timed Research tasks during the event. Complete these missions to earn various rewards, including additional encounters with the Ultra Beasts. You can purchase a ticket to access this Timed Research through the in-game item shop for $5 USD.

Pokemon Go Fest: Global

Niantic is capping off this year’s series of Go Fest celebrations with one final Pokemon Go Fest: Global event on July 13 and 14.

As in years past, Day 1 of the event will feature rotating habitats, which will change every hour and bring out different wild Pokemon to catch. PokeStops will also distribute a rotating selection of Field Research tasks, and special Pokemon like scarf-wearing versions of Espeon and Umbreon will be appearing in raids.

Day 2 will not feature any rotating habitats, but all the wild Pokemon from Day 1 will make an encore appearance, giving you another chance to catch them. There will also be other in-game bonuses throughout both days of the event, such as increased Lure Module duration and special surprises when taking snapshots.

Players who purchase a Go Fest ticket will receive a few extra perks as well, including an exclusive Special Research story that culminates in an encounter with the mythical Pokemon Marshadow. You can purchase a Go Fest ticket through the in-game item shop for $15 USD.

Tynamo Community Day

This month’s Community Day event falls on Sunday, July 21, and stars the electric-type eel Pokemon Tynamo. From 2-5 PM local time, Tynamo will appear in the wild more frequently than usual, and you’ll have a greater chance of encountering a Shiny Tynamo.

In addition to the increased spawns, a few bonuses will be available during July’s Community Day. Lure Modules and Incense will last for three hours rather than their usual durations, and players will earn double the usual amount of candy for catching Pokemon. On top of that, any eggs that are placed into an incubator during the event will hatch at a quarter of the distance they typically require.

Finally, Tynamo’s final form, Eelektross, will be able to learn a special event-exclusive attack during July’s Community Day. Any Eelektrik that you evolve until 10 PM local time will learn the electric-type Fast Attack Volt Switch upon evolving.
