Pokémon Go levelled up its storytelling at a memorable Go Fest

Pokémon Go pulled off its big annual Go Fest event at the weekend with enjoyable gameplay and some excellent storytelling flourishes. In-game and in the real world, developer Niantic dropped an array of teases for the game’s future, and seemed to nimbly avoid the technical snafus seen in the past when millions of people have logged on to play simultaneously.

Go Fest 2021 was ostensibly about Meloetta, the Mythical Pokémon said to inspire music. The event’s first day was spent putting together a band of Pokémon creatures via a Choose Your Own Adventure-style experience which summoned Meloetta to catch at the end.

Day two of the event, on Sunday, was supposedly just about raiding – though Niantic had some other surprises in store. As the first day wrapped up at 6pm local time, a new Mythical creature suddenly appeared on Pokémon Go’s loading screen. Then, from 2am, the game’s skybox suddenly changed to a galactic background, dotted by mysterious animated portals.
