Pokémon Go Ultra Unlock Bonus Week One: Dragon Week

The first of the Ultra Unlock bonuses is Dragon Week. Trainers around the world have been able to complete eight challenges, and now all Pokémon Go players will be rewarded with an entire week of Dragon-type Pokémon. What can we expect from Dragon Week?

What are the Ultra Unlock bonuses

As is tradition with Pokémon GO Fest events, Ultra Unlock Bonuses are rewards that players can earn for everyone by completing challenges. Throughout the first day of Pokémon GO Fest 2020, trainers had over 30 global challenges related to rotating habitats. All eight challenges that were completed by players around the world earned an additional Ultra Unlock event week for a total of three events.
