The Pokemon GO Fest 2020 summer event, which was attended by more than a million players worldwide who bought tickets to attend, experienced technical issues that affected some of the content.

Developer and operator Niantic has apologized to the affected players and has announced that they will be holding a makeup event at a later date.

The specific scope and details of the issues have not been revealed, but some players have reported connection problems and network issues that are familiar to players from previous events.

At the first Pokémon Go Fest in 2017, the large number of attendees at the real venue resulted in a combination of mobile network congestion and game server access problems. As a result, many players who had won the lottery to buy tickets and visit the venue from around the world were temporarily unable to play or log in as if it were a catastrophe.

Lugia, a legendary Pokémon that was supposed to be given away as a part of the event, was also distributed, leading to a situation that was derided as "the explosive birth of Apologetic Lugia" by some of the outspoken media.

This year's inaugural virtual event was unprecedentedly large, with millions of players worldwide, but perhaps because it wasn't concentrated in one place geographically, the game didn't become unplayable worldwide, even if some "issues" did occur.
