Summerfest Companions

There are 11 new pets available for Summerfest, but unlike previous world events, these companions are trappable in the open world! Each zone has a corresponding companion which spawns at a random location. You will know you've found one when the trapping icon pops up as a temporary ability on your screen. Run up to the little critter and use the trapping ability to collect the companion in your inventory. Alternatively, you can purchase a Random Companion Adoption Box for 500 Summerfest Merit Badges from the Summerfest merchant.
