Rotating habitats are part of the Day One, Saturday 25th July, celebrations for Go Fest 2020 in Pokémon Go.
There are five habitats in total - fire, water, grass, battle and friendship - and each one has a set of special Pokémon that will appear when a specific habitat is live.
Every hour of the first day of Go Fest 2020 has been assigned a habitat, which means that each habitat appears twice throughout the day.

Rotating habitats schedule times for Pokémon Go Fest 2020 explained
Throughout the first day of Go Fest 2020 in Pokémon Go, you'll be able to take advantage of the five rotating habitats - fire, water, grass, battle and friendship.
When each habitat is live, you'll be able to encounter a special set of Pokémon that are themed around that specific habitat. During the fire habitat, for example, you'll encounter more fire-type Pokémon.
Each habitat lasts for an hour and will occur twice throughout the day, which means that each habitat is available for a total of two hours.
Below you can find exactly when, according to local time, each habitat will appear throughout the first day, Saturday 25th July, of Go Fest 2020:
- 10am to 11am (local time) - Battle
- 11am to 12pm (local time) - Friendship
- 12pm to 1pm (local time) - Fire
- 1pm to 2pm (local time) - Water
- 2pm to 3pm (local time) - Grass
- 3pm to 4pm (local time) - Battle
- 4pm to 5pm (local time) - Friendship
- 5pm to 6pm (local time) - Fire
- 6pm to 7pm (local time) - Water
- 7pm to 8pm (local time) - Grass
Don't forget to an incense during your favourite habitat hour, because it will boosted the spawn rate even further, helping you find those rarer Pokémon.
Additionally, each habitat has its own Global Challenge reward which will expire when the next habitat arrives, so be sure to take advantage!
Finally, regardless of the schedule (and throughout Day Two, which sees the arrival of the Rocket Straight to Victory quest) there are other non-habitat specific spawns, including Unown letters G and O. Ticket holders - make sure you use incense to make them appear!
Ticket holders should definitely ensure that you catch a Rotom before the end of Go Fest 2020!

Knowing how to evolve Wurmple will also come in handy during this event. You can use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. 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.
