Pokémon GO is adding the Galar region to the game. This guide will show players how they can prepare for Ultra Unlock Part 3: Sword and Shield.
Ultra Unlock Part 3 has been officially announced for Pokémon Go. During the Go Fest, Pokémon Go 2-day annual event, players were tasked with completing global challenges every hour. The whole community had to come together to take on these challenges in order to unlock a special reward. Since Pokémon Go community completed all 24 challenges within the time limit, Niantic rewarded players with the Ultra Unlock event. This event was broken down into 3 different parts, but the final of the 3 has remained hidden, until now. Ultra Unlock Part 3 is built all around the Galar region, featuring Pokemon from Sword and shield for the very first time.
Interestingly, Niantic skips completely Pokémon Sun and Moon The Alola region as the next area to add to the game. Pokémon Sword and Shield came out years after these Nintendo 3DS titles. As with every new region, Niantic only releases a handful of new Pokémon, including the Legendaries in the box. There’s a lot to look forward to for Ultra Unlock Part 3 when it hits later this month. This guide will show players what they can do to prepare for Ultra Unlock Part 3.
Pokémon GO: How to Prepare for Ultra Unlock Part 3: Sword and Shield
Pokémon GoUltra Unlock Part 3: Sword and Shield will take place from Friday August 20 to Tuesday August 31. Here’s how players can prepare for this event.
- Brilliant Hunting: Players will be able to find shiny versions of Galarian Meowth, Farfetch’d, Weezing, and Stunfisk. One of the best ways to get them is by using 7km Eggs, so be sure to stock up on incubators when the event hits.
- Raid Battles: Zacian and Zamazenta will both be added to the game as part of 5 Star Raid Battles. They won’t be shiny yet, but players should aim to capture at least 1 during the event. Complete the Research Breakthrough and collect the Gift Box from the Shop to start refueling Ranged Raid Passes.
- Timed search: This event will also feature a new Timed Research Task for players to complete. The exact details of these tasks have yet to be revealed, but they won’t be around for too long.
- Galar Uniforms: Players will be able to collect the Gym Challenger Uniform for free during this event. It’s not often when Niantic offers free clothing options, so grab them while the weather is hot.
It’s only a matter of time before Alola is introduced to Pokémon Go. It will probably take a little longer due to the large number of Legendary Pokémon available in this region. Either way, the Sword and Shield event will be great for attracting old and new players.
