There are a few things you can do in advance to make sure you get the most out of Day 2 of Pokemon Go Fest:

  • Make a list of Pokemon you missed during Day 1, as they’ll all be appearing again during Day 2 (albeit less often).
  • Once the identity of the new Raid Boss has been confirmed, make sure you have a good team of counters to defeat them.
  • Make sure you have loads of Poke Balls and enough space in your Storage for all the Pokemon you’ll be catching.

Special Research Story

All players will be able to claim a Special Research story by logging in to Pokemon Go during Day 2. Niantic has emphasized that it’s a “short” story so there will likely only be a few steps to complete.

This will also be different from the Special Research story that ticketholders got on Day 1 and it won’t reward you with a Shaymin (Land Forme) encounter.

Free Raid Passes

Ticketholders can earn up to nine free Raid Passes throughout Pokemon Go Fest 2022 by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms. These are for in-person Raids, not Remote Raids.

Additionally, all Pokemon that were attracted to Incense on Day 1 will be attracted to Incense once again on Day 2, so now is a good time to catch up on any rare species you missed.
