GETTYPokemon Go dominates the news headlines again this week

Watching the stream isn't the only way to participate in the Pokemon Go Fest from afar.

While Pokemon GO has had its fair share of missteps since launch, its commercials and advertising have always excelled at pitching the game as a fun way to bring entire cities together to catch their favorite Pokemon.

The Pokemon GO Fest is happening in a couple of days and we know the Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois will be filled with trainers and Pokemon (at least in augmented reality).

Dubbed Pokemon Go Fest, the event is scheduled to take place on July 22nd, where attendees will find increased Pokemon encounters, special PokeStops, unique challenges and have the opportunity to earn an exclusive medal. This event will be marked by the long-awaited introduction of legendary Pokemon, and if a recent trailer released by Niantic is any indication, Mewtwo may be part of the first batch of legendary Pokemon added to the game.

Fans around the globe will have the chance to help those attending the event by catching certain-types of Pokemon, which will lead to some kind of reward on July 23. Players in the United Kingdom will also be able to participate in a different event hosted in the city of Chester.

Shot at Gender-Reveal Party; 1 Person Dead
When the gunfire ended, one woman was dead and eight other people were wounded, including three children, according to police. The pregnant woman told multiple media outlets she lost her baby after being shot in the leg.

It's expected that there will be some kind of special Raid in Chicago, and now it appears something similar could be being planned in the United Kingdom and across Europe.

As the United Kingdom isn't getting a Safari Zone, it would make sense that the Pokemon Go special raid would be available during the Heritage weekend. The studio has also detailed how the new feature will work. If they manage to catch enough Pokemon during the Pokemon GO Fest Challenge Windows, the first Legendary Pokemon will be revealed in Grant Park.

The challenges will come in a set of three, with the first kicking off at 5pm BST and lasting for around thirty minutes.
