Galar Makes Its Debut in Pokemon GO Ultra Unlock Part 3

Niantic announced the first batch of Pokemon GO Galar Pokemon set to debut during the Ultra Unlock Event Part 3.

From August 20 at 10 a.m. through August 31 at 8 p.m., Pokemon including Skwovet and Galarian variants will pop up in Pokemon GO, but the big highlights are Hero of Many Battles Form Zacian and Zamazenta.

If you're wondering what happened to Gen 7 Pokemon, there's still hope we'll see the likes of Alolan Muk sliming around in AR.

This event is tied to Hoopa's shenanigans, so Niantic could introduce Gen 7 like normal sometime after the event ends.
