Pokémon GO August 2022 Content Update - Pokémon GO Fest Sapporo And Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale

The August 2022 Content Update in Pokémon GO brings the finale to the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 and some new events.
Pokémon GO August 2022 Content Update - Pokémon GO Fest Sapporo And Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale

The end of July is just days away, and like clockwork, Niantic released the Pokémon GO August 2022 Content Update. These blog posts always contain the events and the weekly hours that Trainers can expect throughout the next month in-game.

At a base level, the content updates always give an outline for what may appear on certain dates. However, the first time the post goes out, the end of the month information tends to be a mystery in order to build up some hype. But at least we can all still plan because the dates of the mystery events will not change.

Upcoming events from the Pokémon GO August 2022 Content Update

Pokémon GO Fest 2022 events will continue in August. There will be two in total and it will also bring the summer of GO Fest to an end. Not only will the third in-person GO Fest takes place, but the finale for the Season of GO will also go live. Details on the finale are still a mystery, but it will likely take place at the end of August.

Trainers can expect the normal events that happen every month as well. So far, we haven't had a Bug-type event for the summer, and August 2022 seems like the perfect time to bring it back. Below you will find all the events and their dates for the month of August.

  • Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo - August 5, 2022, to August 7, 2022.
  • Pokémon GO Fest Finale - August 27
  • Bug Out! Event - August 10, 2022, to August 16, 2022.
  • August Community Day - August 13
  • 2022 Pokémon World Championship Event - August 18, 2022, to August 23, 2022.

With the end of Pokémon GO Fest: Seattle and the upcoming Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo, there will also be some Ultra Unlock Bonuses to expect in August 2022. Like so much else in the content update though, these will be a mystery for the time being.
