Over three weeks after tickets to Pokémon GO Fest 2018 went on sale, no Trainer has received their confirmation email yet. Niantic said that they would go out about two weeks after the day of purchase.
The one development that came out about Pokémon GO Fest this week refers to the 2017 event. Niantic set up a fund where attendees of the 2017 event can apply to get refunded for their travel & lodging expenses after Niantic was sued over the event's poor experience. SOURCE: Community Reports

8. WEEKEND TRIVIA
This Pokémon sucks the nutrients from trees for food. Whenever someone sees one of its glowing spores, they will fall asleep. Who's that Pokémon: Paras, Morelull, Breloom, or Amoonguss?
Paras received the most votes in our poll, but that is not the correct answer. The correct answer is the one Pokémon that received no votes: Morelull. TRIVIA SOURCE: The Pokémon Company's Official Pokédex
