Four Pokémon are seen spotting a new hat, and many fans aren’t too happy.
This year’s Pokemon Go Fest is slated to take place in July. An advertisement for the popular mobile game apparently leaked an exclusive costume. According to Reddit user u / TrollyBellosom who shared the image from a brief ad, it features four Pokémon wearing new hats.
The new cosmetic, which looks like a cupcake, is almost commonplace on the Pokemon wearing it. On Reddit, the response is generally poor. The majority are disappointed with the design, with one dune592 user saying it “looks pretty bad, even by Niantic standards”.
Another Redditor huskerfan4life520 even went so far as to say, “I wasn’t expecting anything and I’m still disappointed.” It can be said that Pokemon Go players are not motivated for the next paid Go Fest, even with a reduced price.
This year’s Go Fest will have a musical theme to coincide with the ongoing 25th anniversary celebration. Pokémon featured will include Audino, Tympole, Whismur, and Chimecho. Meloetta has been teased as the featured Mythical Pokemon, and her image can be seen on the leaked hat.
As mentioned earlier, instead of the usual price of $ 14.99, it will only cost players $ 5. Hopefully a discount doesn’t mean Niantic is skimping on content. We won’t know until the event kicks off on July 17th.
If the leak doesn’t make you want to spend the $ 5, you can of course play it for free as some content will be available to all players regardless. For those who aren’t fans of mobile games, we still have the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes to look forward to.
While it wasn’t shown at E3 at all, Pokemon Legends: Arceus could very well get its own Nintendo Direct sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, no news from a Nintendo Switch Pro yet. The gaming giant, however, has a busy year with several games underway. If Pokemon isn’t your thing, at least current Switch owners will have a variety of content to delve into.
