Pokémon GO Fest 2021 Ultra Unlock Details: Galar Coming In Week 3

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 was free for all players in the game, but for anyone that purchased a ticket during the event, there was a section of Ultra Unlocks that were earned throughout the weekend.

With Pokémon GO Fest 2021 at a close, all of the Ultra Unlock weeks were unlocked, and now players have three major weeks to look forward to this summer. Sword and Shield week may even involve the appearance of Hoopa in Pokémon GO, but that has yet to be confirmed.

What are Ultra Unlocks in Pokémon GO?

If players completed enough challenges in the Global Challenge Arena, they were rewarded with Ultra Unlocks after Pokémon GO Fest 2021 came to a close. There are three unlocks in total and they each take 8 completed challenges to earn. After 24 challenges were completed, all of them were unlocked.

Each Ultra Unlock will have different themes and sets of Pokémon to catch for about a week in Pokémon GO. So far a week based on Space and a week based on Time have been confirmed. It is Hoopa that is causing the disturbances and bringing in new rotations of Pokémon.
