The PNE Is Going To Be Overflowing With Pokemon This Summer


With the Pacific National Exhibition just around the corner, Pokémon Go players can not only get free admission at the gates, but there will also be an abundance of perks once inside.

Our friends at the PNE have confirmed that 25 Poké Stops, 3 Poké Gyms and tons of Pokémon will be available to fairgoers.

The Fair will also be setting “lures” all day long – so your quest to catch ‘em all could happen sooner than you think!

And if you want to catch the real deal, keep an eye out for the McLaren Pikachu cruising the streets of Vancouver – just don’t throw any Poké Balls at him.

Be sure to check out the wild food at the fair, if you need a break from all the Poké-madness.

The Fair at the PNE kicks off at 11:00am on Saturday, August 20.

Receive free admission during 1 (or all) of these 3 days.
