Niantic is currently in preparation for the 2020 edition of its annual gathering, Pokémon GO Fest, which takes place later this month. While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has put paid to plans of a physical get-together, Pokémon GO players from around the world will still be able to partake in a special "virtual" weekend, which will offer challenges, bonuses, and a host of cute critters just waiting to be added to your menagerie.

To get the Poké Ball rolling, Niantic has released a trailer for the weekend, directed by none other than Rian Johnson, who also helmed Star Wars: The Last Jedi and 2019 murder-mystery Knives Out. The 30-second short sees Pokémon GO fans literally tearing at reality in order to discover Pikachu, Eevee, Snorlax and friends hiding in plain sight. I wish Eevee would show up at my door. That'd make my day.
