Pokémon GO A Paldean Adventure event will debut Pokémon first discovered in the Paldea region

Adventures Abound in Pokémon GO!

Niantic has revealed that the Pokémon found in the Paldea region will soon be available in Pokémon GO. From September 5 at 10 AM to September 10 at 8 PM local time, players will have the opportunity to engage in a Special Research quest named A Paldean Adventure. This research will feature different paths to introduce these new Pokémon to Trainers.

During this period, Trainers can anticipate a range of new activities including raids, hatching of region-specific eggs, a collection challenge, and even avatar items. Notably, the Ultra Unlock bonuses earned by Trainers during Pokémon GO Fest 2023 will play a role in enhancing this upcoming event. Once the initial event concludes, Trainers will also have the chance to participate in the subsequent “Ultra Unlock: Paldea” event.
