This is the game developer's way pushing to its players its latest Adventure Sync feature. Meanwhile, with the GO Fest 2019 happening very soon, players might use some neat tips and tricks on how to survive the upcoming festivity and get the most out of it.
Adventure Sync Feature
Niantic Labs, the team behind the successful augmented reality game "Pokemon GO" recently announced through its support article a major move against Apple. According to the article, the studio is dropping the "Pokemon GO" support on the Cupertino-based tech titan's Apple Watch in lieu of its newest feature called the Adventure Sync. The latest feature allows players to track their steps and several other data with the use of a third-party app.
The axing of the Apple Watch support will start on July 1. This means that "Pokemon GO" trainers using Apple Watch will no longer be able to be linked with the augmented reality game post-July 1. According to Niantic, since the Adventure Sync feature tracks trainers' steps, hatching eggs and earning Buddy Candy can now be done in a single mobile device instead of two individual devices.

Expect that there will be a long line to get in the event but you can be inside the park at any day since it is an open space and is not gated. While you can be at the park at any time, you can only check in to the "Pokemon GO" Fest 2019 on the day that you purchased your ticket. This year's event will happen in Grant Park off the Lake Michigan coast. The event's North entrance is at Butler Field while its South entrance is at Hutchinson Field.
Team lounges will be provided so trainers could charge their phones. However, bring your own cable and an extra one just to make sure that you can recharge whenever needed. Most likely there will be photo ops similar to the biomes during last year's event, so wear your photo ops ready clothes.
According to recent leaks, there might be special challenges and research that attendees and trainers all over the world will need to complete.
