Pokemon GO Fest 2020 is very different than what we are generally used to. Due to the pandemic, people are going to have to stay at home. The Pokemon GO Fest 2020 is going to come to you this year and in this guide, we are going to go over some tips and tricks that will let you enjoy Pokemon GO Fest 2020 at home or outside.

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 Tips And Tricks

The following are some tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when playing Pokemon GO Fest 2020 at home:

Make Room For All The Pokemon

Even if you are playing at home and are not going outside, you are still going to be able to catch Pokemon with incense. With double the effectiveness, you should get at least one Pokemon every second. With that in mind, you are going to need a lot of space.

The Pokemon storage space has been increased to over 3000. So if you are interested in buying more space then you can. If you are not interested in paying money then you can just clear your inventory. Remove all the Pokemon that you do not need and are just taking up space. Transfer those extra region exclusive Pokemon that you have lying around and even transfer the common Pokemon that you can catch any day of the year.

Item Storage

If you are going to catch so many Pokemon then you are going to need Pokeballs and you are going to need storage to keep those Pokeballs. In order to get the storage you need to delete the items that you do not need. You are not going to need the TMs that you have lying around. If you are a PVP player then you can always earn those back.

If you have rare candies lying around then be sure to use them on Pokemon that you know you are going to power up so that they do not take up space in your items. You can remove berries as well. The most important ones are the Golden Razz Berries and you can keep the Pinap Berries as well.

Add Friends

You should add friends to make the most out of the event if you are playing at home. You will be able to send 200 gifts and will be able to hold 20 at a time. So take advantage of those gifts to stock up on balls and other items that you are going to need. You can also open up the gifts on the days of the event.

Do Not Open And Send Gifts Willy Nilly

Niantic has confirmed that you should not open gifts until the friendship habitat comes around. There are going to be 5 habitats and they are going to change after every hour. So a habitat is going to appear twice in a day. Be sure to open up those gifts during the friendship habitat in order to make the most of them.

If You Are Heading Outside

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 Tips

If you are not playing from home and are headed outside then the following are some additional tips for you to keep in mind:

Are You Allowed To Be Outside?

Be sure that you can actually be outside. During these special times, it might not be safe to go outside or meet other people. Be sure that your area allows you to go outside and that it is safe to do so.

Be Responsible (Social Distancing)

If you are going outside and you are allowed to then you should still stay away from other people. Social distancing is going to be key. Wear a mask and keep a bottle of hand sanitizer with you.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

In areas such as my own, it can and will get very hot. You are going to sweat and you will need to keep hydrating. Not only are you going to need water but salt and other minerals as well. Be sure to keep water and electrolytes with you.

Plan Lunch And Keep Snacks

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 is not taking place at a single place, as it usually does. This time it is a global event, So you are going to need to plan where you are going to have lunch. You should plan ahead. Keep some snacks with you as well.

Charge Your Phone

Remember to charge your phone in order to start off the day right and make the most of the event.

Keep A Battery Bank

Playing the game for a couple of hours is going to drain your battery pretty quickly. We recommend keeping a battery bank with you in case you need it. Just be sure to have it charged ahead of time so that the juice is there when you need it.

Beat The Rays With Sunscreen 

If you are headed outside then you should have some sunscreen with you too. You do not want to get burnt on the first day on Pokemon GO Fest 2020 and then spend the second day in misery.
