How to get Torkoal and Tropius during Go Fest 2022 in Pokémon Go

How to catch these regionally exclusive Pokémon during Go Fest 2022.

Torkoal and Tropius are two of the regionally exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Go, but, for Go Fest 2022, they’ve broken their geographical confinement to appear worldwide!

It’s important to note, however, you must have purchased a Go Fest 2022 ticket to find these two Pokémon during the habitat hours of Day One - Saturday, 4th June - of this Pokémon Go event.

Below you’ll learn how to get Torkoal and Tropius during Go Fest 2022.

Make sure you check out our Pokémon Go Fest 2022 research steps page for information on how to get Shaymin, and what path and difficulty choice you should make this Go Fest 2022!

How to get Torkoal and Tropius during Go Fest 2022 in Pokémon Go

If you want to catch Torkoal and Tropius during Go Fest 2022, then you must purchase a ticket for this event from the in-game Pokémon Go shop. Without this ticket, neither Pokémon will appear in your version of the game.

Go Fest 2022 ticket holders can find both Pokémon by using Incense during two specific habitat hours during Day One - Saturday, 4th June - of the event:

  • Torkoal - Plains
  • Tropius - Rainforest
Catching these regionally exclusive Pokémon is worth the effort.

Both of these habitat hours will occur twice throughout Day One of Go Fest 2022, so don’t worry if you miss the first time this habitat hour occurs!

Since Torkoal and Tropius can’t evolve, you only need to catch one to fully complete their related Pokédex entries.

Yet, since they’re both regionally exclusive Pokémon, it’s a good idea to catch a couple to either trade with your friends who might not have wanted to purchase a Go Fest 2022 ticket or any future trades. Regionally exclusive Pokémon are always good trade currency, after all.

The Season of Go has arrived! The Pokémon TCG Crossover event is here, which includes the release of Wimpod and Golisopod. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. Meanwhile, the Great League and Great League and Great League Remix are currently running in the Go Battle League Season 11. This season has also seen the lowering of the level requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego.

Hope you’re enjoying Go Fest 2022!
