If you have ever wanted to catch some Pokémon from the Unova region, then this is your finest chance to do so and fill up your missing Unova Region Pokémon entries in the Pokedex. As we can see from the list, many Pokémon from the Unova region are appearing in the wild, and you can catch those without much effort, and there is even no need to go out for those Pokémon. But, some rare Pokémon will only appear in the Raids of varied difficulties, and to catch them you will have to visit your nearest Gym, participate in the raids, and then catch those Pokémon after defeating them. You even get a chance to catch Genesect from the five-star raids.
Unova Week Research Tasks
Unlike the first Pokémon GO Ultra Unlock Bonus week that was the Dragon Week, the Unova Week has no specific research tasks. Any Pokémon GO trainer can encounter all the Pokémon listed in the list provided above in the wild, through a 7 KM egg hatched during the event, or through a raid. No research tasks mean no extra effort in catching your favorite Unova region Pokémon.
Being the final event of the Ultra Unlock Bonus from the Pokémon GO Fest 2020, the Unova Week is a great little event for the trainers who want to catch some decent Unova region Pokémon. There are some of the rarest Pokémon as well along with so pretty cool looking shinies. Again, know that the even is currently live and would last until the next Friday that is August 21.
