Pokémon Go Ultra Unlock Bonus Week Two: Enigma Week

The second of the Ultra Unlock Bonuses is Enigma Week. Trainers around the world were able to complete 16 challenges, so all Pokémon Go players are rewarded with an entire week of mysterious and enigmatic Pokémon. What can we expect from Enigma week?

What are the Ultra Unlock bonuses

As is the tradition with Pokémon GO Fest events, Ultra Unlock Bonuses are rewards that ticket holders 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. The second of these weeks begins now, Friday August 8, 2020.
