Pokemon GO Fest 2022 Habitat Hours

Habitat Hours during Pokemon GO Fest 2022 will feature Pokemon that fit into four different biomes: City, Plains, Rainforest, and Tundra. All players will be able to catch these mons, but not everyone will be able to do the catch challenges associated with the Habitat Hours.

As the name implies, each ‘habitat’ will last for a single hour starting at 10 AM local time on Saturday, June 4. Once all four have passed, it will cycle through each one again until 6 PM local time.
