Details were scarce when Niantic revealed Go Fest will take place in 2021. The developer only left the community with a single promotional image. However, eagle-eyed fans have spotted an interesting detail on the poster.

Around the logo for the 2021 festival are tiny musical notes. This led many to speculate that it is a direct reference to Unova Mythical Meloetta. The ‘mon has hair that looks like a music bar and has arms shaped like quarter notes.

Echoing fellow player speculation, Serebii’s Joe Merrick tweeted out, “Well that logo clearly indicates Meloetta.” The veteran Pokemon fan sparked a discussion on the social media platform.

Users agreed that it seemed that Niantic was hinting at the Gen V Mythical. One fan pointed out “The not so subtle “stay Tuned” and the musical notes in the logo makes me feel like it’ll have Meloetta as well.” Another said, “As does their “stay *tuned*” with tuned in italics. Music time!”

One Trainer reacted to the picture immediately and wrote “Meloetta most likely.”

Only time will tell if the prediction pans out. Although it seems likely given Niantic has a history of making teases in a similar fashion. Of course, it’s always good to keep expectations in check as the Gen V Mythical is by no means confirmed.
