Today, Niantic announces Pokémon Go calendar for June 2020, and it’s going to be a busy month! Before going too far in the month, the Pokémon Go Throwback Challenge event will end with the last week of special research and the introduction of several Galician Pokémon. Galarian Meowth, Galarian Zigzagoon, Galarian Darumaka and Galarian Stunfisk will all make their Pokémon Go debuts, with all the respective developments.

Zekrom will resume legendary raid battles from June 16, 2020. It will be presented in three legendary raid hours, during which virtually all gymnasiums will be supported throughout the hour by Zekrom Raids. Make sure you have your remote raid passes ready:
