This Is Why The First Day of Pokemon Go Fest 2022 Was Terrible.

Pokemon Go Fest 2022 was supposed to be one of the year’s most memorable events, with players able to participate in the fun. However, the fact remains that the event was disappointing in a number of ways. The reason for this is as follows.

Pokemon Go Fest 2022 Incense Bug

During Pokemon Go Fest 2022, players encountered a bug in which incense-specific Pokemons vanished as soon as they were tapped on. Another problem is the low Shiny rate. When compared to the previous event, the number of Shiny pokemon encountered has increased dramatically.

The Unintelligible Event Logic

Part of it can be attributed to random number generators, or chance, and some of it can be attributed to the overall structure of the first-day festivities. There was no rhyme or reason to this Pokemon Go Fest, and there was far too much going on.

Previous events had a story that was supported by the roster for the day. To awaken Jirachi from its slumber, players had to catch Bronzong, Jigglypuff, Kricketot and Loudred at the 2019 Fest. There was a satisfying a-ha moment at the conclusion of the story.

Last year’s Go Fest required players to form their own band with the assistance of costumed Gardevoir, Pikachu, and Vibraza. Players can catch these Pokemon in four different habitats, which has tied the event together. Meloetta was the final encountered Pokemon at this gathering.

When it comes to Pokemon Go Fest 2022, the logic is no longer existed. Niantic chose to give players more options when it came to approaching Shaymin’s Special Research, but it’s unclear why Klink, Tropius, or Torkoal are involved in this questline despite being rewards. Furthermore, the quest lacked focus, contributing to a chaotic day of Team Go Rocket battles, raids, and rotating habitats.

Limited Pocket Pokemons

Aside from that, the selection of pocket monsters was limited. There were a lot of Pokemon with Community Days or events. Aside from Shelmet, Karrablast, Numel, Shroomish, Unown B, and Axew, there wasn’t much new for long-time players. That’s not enough, and finding those variants wasn’t easy.

All of these issues result in a disjointed and unpleasant experience. Let’s hope that Niantic’s plans for August will make up for the disaster in July.
