Pokémon GO players may have uncovered the next location of the Pokémon GO Fest 2023.

GO Fest is an annual celebration that has trainers coming together from all over the world. The in-person event features exclusive Pokémon and community-based activities. It pops up in different locations all over the world, leaving Pokémon players anxiously awaiting the official announcement. But this time around, the location has possibly been discovered early.

On Reddit, one trainer saw some interesting evidence that points to where the North American location will be. The leak was actually not from a Pokémon website, however. It was on the Visit Vancouver Washington page. The blog was titled “Vancouver GoFest” and gave some possible insight into what’s to come.

Pokémon GO Fest 2023 location and date

If the city’s blog post is accurate, Pokémon GO Fest 2023 will be located in Vancouver, Washington. Washington is actually the state where The Pokémon Company International has its headquarters. Vancouver itself is a nature lover’s paradise, known for its mountain biking, bird walking, breweries, and hiking.

The exact location will be the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. This park is a blend of “snow mountain peaks” and a “vibrant urban landscape.” It started as a frontier fur trading post and has a lot of incredible history.

According to the blog post, GO Fest 2023 is taking place on June 3 to June 4. During this time, trainers will be able to collect stamps from local businesses, post photos with their Pokémon, and interact with professional cosplayers.

The location and date of Pokémon GO Fest 2023 has not been confirmed by Niantic just yet. But trainers are pretty confident that this is valid information since it falls in line with Pokémon’s usual MO, including the dates. For now, however, fans will have to wait for Niantic to officially announce the details to know for sure.
