How to prepare for Pokemon Go Fest 2023

If you’re going to take part in the Global Go Fest 2023 event, there are a few things you can do to prepare and get the most out of the event:

  • Purchase two Incense to use on the day as they usually last longer during Go Fest.
  • Save any Lure Modules you have as they usually last for three hours during the event.
  • Stock up on lots of Ultra Balls so you can catch plenty of the headline Pokemon.
  • Transfer any unwanted Pokemon so you’ll have space for all the catching you’ll do.
