With Niantic’s first live event, Chicago’s Pokémon Go Fest, panned as an outright failure, fans are skeptical of the upcoming in-person trainer collective in Yokohama, Japan. However, it seems Niantic is confident enough in the event, Pokémon Go Stadium, to offer a live stream for fans across the globe to watch it all unfold.

Reddit user crosswithyou shared a Japanese flyer for the event, which reveals the event’s official Facebook page will host a live stream of the event. The Stadium show begins at 6 p.m. in Japan, which converts to the early hours of 2 a.m. PT (or 5 a.m. ET) in the U.S. The Stadium event itself has been advertised since early July, but only lucky trainers will be able to attend, as tickets were dispersed using a random lotto system on the Japanese Pokémon website.

Apart from many Pikachu dances and parades, the Pokémon Go community is confident the last legendary bird, Ho-Oh, will be released during Stadium, as it takes place the same day the current Legendary bird, Zapdos, will leave raid battles. The name of the event itself also draws in speculation, as it sounds similar to Nintendo 64’s Pokémon Stadium, which allowed players to have 3D battles against other trainers using Pokémon transported from their Gameboy versions. Niantic has previously announced they’re working on PvP battles within Pokémon Go, leading many to believe this would be the perfect venue to unveil the new content.

The festivities surrounding the annual Pikachu Outbreak Festival, which celebrates Ash’s favorite Pokémon, began on Wednesday, August 9th, with the Pokémon Go Park event. Attending players have been able to capture rare Pokémon, including the newly released shiny version of Pikachu and Europe’s region-exclusive Pokémon Mr. Mime. It seems Niantic has learned from Pokémon Go Fest by increasing the spawn radius for Pokémon to avoid cellular data issues and server crashes. Attendees of the Chicago event are still slowly receiving their ticket refunds and free in-game coins, but many are still outraged enough over the cost of flights and hotels to sue the company.

Pokémon Go is currently available for free download on iOS and Android.
