During the first day of Pokemon GO Fest 2020, players will be able to explore virtual habitats within the app.

These habitats feature a different set of Pokemon to catch and Global Challenges to complete. They will rotate every hour throughout the day. It reimagines the physical habitats present at past GO Fest events.

Here’s the schedule for habitat rotation as well as lists of the kinds of Pokemon you can find and the Global Challenges you can complete in each habitat.

Global Habitat Rotation Schedule

So the schedule for habitat rotation is a little weird since the first day of GO Fest takes place on July 25 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time. That means different parts of the world are going to have a slightly different schedules of habitat rotation.

According to an email sent to Heavy from Niantic’s PR team, GO Fest will begin with the Grass habitat at UTC+12 (10 a.m. Wellington, New Zealand) and rotate through the habitats in the following order: Grass, Battle, Friendship, Fire, Water.

We’ve created a chart outlining the schedule of habitat rotation for each of the time zones in the United States. We received our info from Niantic’s PR team.
