Pokemon Go Fest was absolutely horrible and Niantic knows that they did a really poor job. In fact, the event was so bad that Niantic is actually postponing some future events to figure some things out. The Pokemon Go Safari events were supposed to be on August 5 in Copenhagen and Prague, but they will be delayed. The event in Stockholm and Amsterdam on August 12 will be postponed to a later date as well.
Niantic says that Pikachu Outbreak, which will be held on August 14 in Japan, is still good to go and there will be no delays with that. All future events that are currently planned for France, Spain, and Germany are also going to be held as scheduled. To explain these delays, Niantic has come out with a statement:
In order to guarantee the best possible gameplay experience for European Trainers, we have decided to postpone the events in Europe scheduled for August 5 (Copenhagen and Prague) and August 12 (Stockholm and Amsterdam) until a date later in the Fall.
No other scheduled events are affected including the event scheduled for Yokohama, Japan on August 14 and the events scheduled for September 16 in France, Spain, and Germany.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you understand that our priority is to ensure a great experience for Pokémon GO Trainers in Europe and around the world. Trainers that might have questions regarding the Safari Zone events should visit the help center.
Let’s just wait and see how these future events go. If Niantic can’t get it together by the team these events come around, there are going to be some seriously angry fans.
