Pokémon GO’s First Ultra Unlock Week Features Dragon-Type Pokémon
During this special week, you can battle Rayquaza in raids, find a Shiny Deino if you’re lucky, and more.
Pokémon GO Fest 2020 was chock-full of fun challenges and cool rewards for Pokémon GO players all over the world—including earning the Ultra Unlock bonus. During day one of GO Fest, there were 32 Global Challenge Arena challenges for the Pokémon GO Fest ticket holders to complete. For every eight challenges they completed, they unlocked an additional Ultra Unlock event week for all Trainers. GO Fest ticket holders managed to complete enough challenges to unlock all three Ultra Unlock event weeks, and the first of these events has just begun!
Ultra Unlock Week One: Dragon Week
Thanks to GO Fest ticket holders’ efforts, Dragon Week has begun. This week celebrates Dragon-type Pokémon, as well as other Pokémon that share their majesty. Dragon Week will run from Friday, July 31, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT to Friday, August 7, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT.
During this week, Alolan Exeggutor, Horsea, Dratini, Trapinch, Swablu, and Bagon are appearing more frequently in the wild. You might even find a Gible in the wild! Horsea, Dratini, Trapinch, Swablu, and Bagon are hatching from 7 km Eggs, and you might hatch a Gible or a Deino if you’re lucky. You might even find a Shiny Deino! Additionally, the Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza is appearing in five-star raids.
Not only that, but from Friday, July 31, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. to Friday, August 7, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT, special Timed Research will be available. If you complete it, you’ll earn encounters with two Deino. What a Deino-mite bonus!
Upcoming Ultra Unlock Weeks
GO Fest ticket holders also completed enough global challenges to unlock the upcoming Enigma Week and Unova Week events for all Trainers!
Enigma Week will run from Friday, August 7, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT to Friday, August 14, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT. During this time, you’ll be able to encounter mysterious Pokémon like Deoxys and Elgyem. You’ll even have the chance to catch some elusive Unown! Be on the lookout for Unown U, L, T, R, and A.
Unova Week will take place from Friday, August 14, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT to Friday, August 21, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT. This week will celebrate Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region. The Mythical Pokémon Genesect will appear in five-star raids, and if you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Genesect. Plus, Sewaddle, Cottonee, Emolga, and Bouffalant will be making their Pokémon GO debut during this event.
Congratulations on clearing all those challenges, Trainers, and enjoy catching plenty of Pokémon during these Ultra Unlock weeks!
