If you haven’t heard, the Pokemon Go Fest was a disaster. Niantic said they would refund ticket costs but some attendees are not satisfied.
O Pikachu, Where Art Thou? Not In The Pokemon Go Fest Apparently
Chicago-based attorney Thomas Zimmerman is representing “20 to 30” people who are part of a class-action lawsuit. Hour long lines and a non functioning game awaited those who travelled across the land, searching far and wide. Each Pokemon, to understand. The power that’s inside.
Some as far as California came to the event only to meet those problems. As far as they could tell, this was against what Niantic advertised
“We’re not seeking any relief with respect to the failure to get legendary Pokémon, because Niantic is offering that,” he told us. “But Niantic is not offering to refund people’s travel expenses for coming to Chicago. Most of the people came from out of state, many people from other countries — I talked to someone who flew in from Japan.”
