How does Go Fest 2023: Sky High work during Go Fest 2023 in Pokémon Go

Go Fest 2023: Sky High is a special research quest released on Sunday 27th August as part of Go Fest Global 2023. To unlock this quest, you must log into the game at least once on Sunday 27th August between 10am to 6pm (local time).

It’s also important to note that there are two versions of this quest - one for free-to-play players and one for those who brought Go Fest Global 2023 tickets. The free-to-play version of the quest is far shorter, while the extended version offers you the chance to earn more Meteorites.

The pay-to-play version is called Go Fest 2023: Super Sky High and, to unlock it, ticket holders must first complete the free version of this quest.

Since Meteorites are crucial to getting Mega Rayquaza, you may want to purchase a Go Fest 2023 ticket if you wish to Mega Evolve more than one Rayquaza.

No matter which version of Go Fest 2023: Sky High you’re playing, it will always be a special research quest. This means that it doesn’t have a deadline, so you can complete it at your own pace without having to worry about losing your chance to earn a Meteorite.

Good luck collecting Meteorites!
