Apparently, 1) a lot of people are still playing Pokémon Go , and 2) those connectivity issues are still around, at least based on scenes from Saturday' s Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago — Maria MsDBZbabe (@MsDBZbabe) July 22, 2017 .

“The Pokémon Go Summer Tour 2018 is set to bring trainers together around the world for fun, exploration and adventure,” said Niantic CEO and founder John Hanke. “After getting off to a bumpy start in Chicago last year, we hosted a number of record-setting events in Japan, Korea, and cities across Europe with attendance that ranged from tens of thousands to more than two million. We are excited to be returning to Chicago for our U.S. event.”

Niantic reportedly settled a lawsuit over the first ‘Pokémon Go’ Fest in April. A California man filed the class action suit in July 2017 after he claimed the event didn’t live up to its promises. It was supposed to be a celebration of the developer’s popular augmented reality game, but it was plagued with connectivity issues. At one point, unhappy fans booed Hanke while he was on stage. The developer reportedly settled for an estimated $1,575,000.
